Donald Trump, who has been indicted four times in a number of cases, revealed when his wife the former First Lady Melania Trump is going to show up in public, as the erstwhile model has been absent since early April this year sparking speculations about the couple’s marriage.
Melania Trump was not present when Donald Trump was criminally charged four times in a number of cases ranging from paying hush money to election subversion in Georgia.
The 52-year-old Melania’s last appearance with the 77-year-old Trump was at the Mar-a-Lago Easter brunch.
She was also not seen at Trump’s press conference when he was indicted for the first time which he held at Mar-a-Lago. But her father Viktor Knavs was spotted sitting between the former commander-in-chief’s sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr.
Trump is also facing other indictments in cases that include provoking people on his false claims of rigged elections leading to the January 6 2021 riots, retaining classified documents after leaving the Oval Office and election interference and criminal racketeering to overturn the election results in the state of Georgia.
In an interview with NBC News Meet the Press, the four-time indicted said that former First Lady Melania Trump may be back on the campaign trail with him “pretty soon.”
“Yes. Soon? Yeah, pretty soon. When it’s appropriate, but pretty soon,” he told the channel, adding that “she’s a private person, a great person, a very confident person and she loves our country very much.”
“And honestly, I like to keep her away from it. It’s so nasty and so mean,” the first-ever indicted president of US history added in the interview which is due to air Sunday.
A former aide of Melania Trump Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, while speaking with Page Six said two months earlier that “the glaring absence did not signify that their marriage was breaking up.”
“Melania lives in an ivory tower of denial. Her silence is deliberate, it is her weapon of choice and her protective armour,” Wolkoff said.
The former model appeared on very limited occasions during Trump’s campaign trials when her husband ran for the Oval Office. Even in 2020, she rarely attended public events.
As a first Lady, she was very low-profile spending time with the couple’s then 10-year-old Barron. Trump noted that she was busy taking care of Barron Trump, who is now 17 years old, mentioning that “she loves that boy.”
