Many have read much into Melania Trump’s low public profile and absence from several photo op events.
Melania’s absence at several campaign rallies and court sessions where the former president was indicted or testified prompted political armchair quarterbacks to speculate that the Trumps’ marriage was in crisis.
A Christmas photo posted by Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., showed the Trump family gathered in front of a Christmas tree at a holiday celebration.
Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Ivanka and Jared’s children, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Donald Trump Jr., Barron Trump, Ivanka’s half-sister Tiffany and her husband Michael Boulos were featured in the photo.
Notably absent in the photo was Melania Trump, 53. A Trump spokesperson explained that Melania was “tending to a family matter,” per a report in Page Six.
Page Six also reported that Melania plans to “step up her public appearances” in 2024 to “support her husband’s bid to be re-elected president.”
A Trump spokesperson clarified to Page Six: “Trump and his family are so secure that he will become president again that insiders at Mar-a-Lago say he’s reached an agreement with [wife] Melania [Trump] to step up top-tier diplomatic appearances in 2024.”
The spokesperson added: “Melania realizes it’s her time to join the ranks of historic first ladies and leave her mark on history … She feels better prepared for her potential role the second time around.”
Donald and Melania Trump recorded and posted a Christian-themed Christmas message.
The former president continues to rise in the polls amid intense Democratic-led legal pressure to derail his candidacy.
