Hey, isn’t that … President Trump and wife Melania spending a rare night out on the town?

On Saturday, POTUS and FLOTUS were spotted having a date night at BLT Prime by David Burke, the steakhouse inside Trump International Hotel, which is just a few blocks from the White House. The telltale sign that something was afoot? A huge Secret Service presence. Our source had to make it past not one, not two, but four checkpoints before being allowed to settle down for dinner.

“They looked happy and cozy,” our tipster said of the Trumps. The first couple, who marked their 13th wedding anniversary Jan. 22, have been battling rumors of strife since allegations against the president of an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels (and a subsequent payoff) resurfaced last month.

But that dark cloud had seemingly passed Saturday. The Trumps waved to their fellow diners and even snapped a few photos with fans, who at one point began chanting, “USA! USA!”
