Melania Trump has been thrust back into the spotlight following the indictment of her husband, former President Donald Trump. According to a “political source” who spoke to People magazine, Melania and Donald were both shocked when they were told about the indictment, but Melania will support him.
The couple reportedly did not change their social schedule and went ahead with their dinner plans with friends at their Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, later that evening. The source said, “Like usual, drama swirls around them, and they wade through it. It’s part of their lives.”
A Trump adviser, Gina Loudon, also stated that the couple behaved as though things were normal at the event. In a tweet, she wrote, “Our REAL First Couple enveloped in the love of their friends and most loyal!
The UK’s Daily Mail quoted sources close to the former first couple who made similar observations about Melania. “Mrs. Trump is strong. She is focused on her family and stands behind her husband, as she always has,” the source said.
“For the past seven years, the left has made multiple attempts to smear and attack her family, and this is just the latest attempt to bring him down.”
According to reports, Melania and their son, Barron Trump, were not seen among the entourage that accompanied the former president to New York, where he was arraigned in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday afternoon. The former first lady wore a bold red dress, making a statement with her attire, according to the Daily Mail.
Melania had previously voiced her support for her husband’s decision to run for the 2024 GOP nomination. “I support my husband’s decision to run for president of this wonderful Nation.
His achievements during his administration had a great effect on all of us, and he can lead us toward success and prosperity again. I await the day when my husband returns to lead an America that is characterized by peace, love, and security,” she said, according to Breitbart News.
Donald Trump, who announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination in November 2022, is expected to face legal hurdles in the upcoming election cycle. The former president was indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on charges related to hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal.
Judge Juan Merchan, who is overseeing Trump’s case, ruled that no cameras would be allowed in the courtroom for the arraignment, but he will allow five pool photographers to snap for several minutes before the proceedings start.
