During the past couple of weeks, all eyes are on former president Donald Trump after an investigation by the Manhattan district attorney’s office led to him to be indicted for his role in a hush money scheme prior to the 2016 elections. Trump made a $130,000 payment through his then-personal attorney Michael Cohen to adult film star Stormy Daniels in order to prevent her from speaking openly of their affair. He pleaded not guilty to falsifying business records to hide damaging information.
Back in 2018, Trump confessed that a non-disclosure agreement that his attorney, Michael Cohen, had made with Daniels existed but no campaign money was involved in the deal. After appearing in the New York courtroom, Trump flew back to his Florida property where he celebrated Easter with his wife and the rest of the family, including Melania’s parents. Rumors are that the relationship between Trump and his wife has been a rocky one following his arrest, but not many are convinced that’s true.
Melania didn’t accompany her husband to New York, and sources claimed she won’t appear in court as she’s too angry because of the affair.
People close to her claim she’s far from happy with the situation her husband has found himself in. “She remains angry and doesn’t want to hear [the alleged hush money payment] mentioned,” the source told People. “She is aware of who her husband is and keeps her life upbeat with her own family and a few close friends.”
Stephanie Grisham, former White House aid, told Inside Edition, “I would be very, very surprised. I would be very surprised to see her in court. Because it has to do with Stormy Daniels. It’s just not in her to stand by her man for something like that.
“She’s not lending him a whole lot of moral support, and I’m sure she’s still thinking: ‘You got yourself into this mess. I’m certainly not going to walk beside you and support you as you try to get out of it,’” she added. Grisham recalled the time Melania learned of the affair and was disgusted with Donald. “She always said to me, ‘this is his problem,’” Grisham recalled.
During Easter, Melania broke her silence for the first time when she tweeted “Happy Easter,” and posted a photo of a rose.
She was then seen on Easter with Trump and a source told Page Six, “The Donald’s family and Melania are closer than ever. She’s happy at his new emphasis on family, and family life. She has asked him to be there for Barron, and he has been, and she in turn has told him she’ll support him. “[Appearing] publicly during this [time] is critical … with regular appearances. The fact that Ivanka [Trump] and Jared [Kushner] have stepped away makes it all the more attractive for her to step up to the plate.”
During the speech he gave in Florida after pleading not guilty, Trump didn’t mention his wife. She didn’t attend the indictment charges hearing in New York, but according to a PageSix source, Trump begged her to return to his side as he tried to rally support from his voters moving forward. “He told her, ‘I really need you for this because we are going to be campaigning,’” the source said. “They had a major talk over the weekend, and she has … agreed to be on board.”
Further, the source said, “She wanted just to be alone with him; that was her request. The fact it was the two of them alone was a big statement. This was a statement [saying], ‘We are together, I stand by my husband.’ It was two of them and they had roped off the table. I think she wanted to show support, but didn’t want to have to talk about any of this s–t.” On Tuesday, the former First Lady put out a public statement which read:
“News organizations have made assumptions about the former First Lady’s stance on subjects that are personal, professional, and political over the past few weeks. In these articles, unnamed sources are cited to bolster the author’s claims. “We ask readers to exercise caution and good judgment when determining whether or not stories concerning the former First Lady are accurate, particularly when they fail to cite Mrs. Trump as a source of information.” What do you think of the relationship between Donald Trump and Melania?
