Melania Trump and Donald Trump’s relationship has been a subject of public interest and scrutiny, particularly during their time in the spotlight as the First Lady and President of the United States. Melania and Donald have been married since January 22, 2005, and have one child together, Barron William Trump.
Their relationship has been characterized by both moments of public unity and periods of speculation. Melania has often been seen as a private and reserved figure, in stark contrast to her husband’s outspoken and polarizing nature. She has been known for her focus on various initiatives, such as her “Be Best” campaign, which aimed to address issues like cyberbullying and children’s well-being.
While their marriage has faced its share of controversies and allegations, Melania Trump has consistently defended her husband and maintained a relatively low profile.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who wrote the 2020 book, Melania and Me, declared that having Melania Trump back in the White House again would be detrimental for the country.
While speaking on “The MeidasTouch Podcast,” Winston Wolkoff said Trump “never wanted” to be first lady in the first place.
“It doesn’t matter if Melania is there or not,” Winston Wolkoff said, adding that the model would have “a lot more freedom” now since her son, Barron, will be 18 years old in March.
Winston Wolkoff also said that Trump will never speak out about her husband’s sexual assault allegations.
“It’s very easy to use words, and that’s who Melania is,” Winston Wolkoff said.
“She can talk about independence, she can talk about grace, but they’re empty words, they mean nothing she said, adding that Trump becoming the first lady again would be “the most tragic thing for our country. ”
“Giving her that platform [would] do positively, absolutely nothing, except create more controversy,” she concluded.
As per Donald Trump, his wife, who is typically not with him on the campaign trail, will be more present going forward.
“She wants to make America great again, too,” he noted of his wife in a new interview. “I rely on her for advice and all the others. I think she will be very active in the sense of being active.”
In September 2023, Donald explained why Melania is nowhere to be seen when he’s at a rally or event.
“Honestly, I like to keep her away from it,” he said. “It’s so nasty and so mean.”
