Trump’s First Lady: Where IS Melania?

Despite Trump’s active campaigning in the run-up to the election, his wife, Melania, is strangely absent. 

A Private Life

After leaving the White House, Melania Trump has chosen to lead a more private life, unlike the majority of women who have held the title of First Lady of the United States. 

Less Visible

While others remained in the spotlight through involvement in popular policy initiatives, Melania remained reserved and less visible during her time in the White House.

Instead, Melania’s focus on privacy keeps her public persona somewhat mysterious, which is different from the traditional role of a first lady. 

Her Campaign

Melania did have her own initiative with the Be Best Campaign that hoped to reduce cyberbullying, but that a relatively small cultural impact when compared to the efforts made by her predecessors. 

Supports Her Husband’s Ambition

While she still supports her husband’s political ambitions, her personal interests seem to prioritize her own privacy and independence.

Support Remains

However, The Irish Times reported Melania’s lack of public support for her husband’s campaign does not indicate disapproval. 

Instead, she remains defensive of her husband and believes their family has been unfairly attacked throughout his campaign. 

Skeptical of Media

Deeply skeptical of mainstream media, she distrusts journalists and tries to avoid the intrusion. 

Legal Challenges

Melania’s attempts at maintaining her privacy have been complicated by her husband, who has tried to bring her back into the political world as he faces possible legal challenges. 

No Parades

However, she has not made any public appearances on the campaign trial or been present at court proceedings.

Stephanie Grisham, a former Trump aide told the Irish Times, “I don’t think it’s going to be anything like what we’ve seen with Casey DeSantis” and “She’s not going to be throwing on jeans and walking in parades.”

Close Ties With White House

She maintains close ties with a select group of friends from her time in the White House, as well as her parents, who often attend events at Mar-a-Lago, the Trumps’ private club. 

No Political Campaigns

Despite her supportive stance on her husband’s presidential bid, she has not engaged in campaigning like Casey DeSantis, the wife of Governor Ron DeSantis, who actively participates in his events.

Promoting Her Collection

Melania remains active on social media, primarily promoting her NFT (non-fungible token) collection, which includes digital drawings and memorabilia. 

A Different Way of Doing Things

Her NFT venture sets her apart from previous first ladies, who capitalized on their fame through book deals and paid speeches.

Family and Friends

Nowadays, Melania’s world revolves around a small circle of family and close friends, as reported by the Irish Times. 

Away from the Spotlight

She focuses on supporting her son, Barron, in his college search and spends her time at her three homes, away from the public spotlight. 

First Lady Again

Looking ahead, Melania could be forgiven for wondering about the possibility of becoming the first lady again should her husband win the election.

However, she has not committed to campaigning for him actively.
