Melania Trump, the former First Lady of the United States, is widely known for her reserved demeanor and low profile on social media. In light of recent events surrounding her husband, former President Donald Trump, the former First Lady has been shrouded in speculation and assumptions made by news organizations.
A Rare Social Media Outing
Despite her tendency to maintain a low profile, Melania Trump recently made an exception on the occasion of Earth Day. The former First Lady took to social media to share a video from her current residence in Florida, showcasing the beauty of the planet amidst the rain.
She captioned the video with a brief message, "The beauty of our planet. Happy #earthday." Her followers were quick to respond with positive comments, such as "Beautiful," "We can't wait for you to return to the White House", "You are the only true First Lady," and "The First Lady we were proud of."
Withdrawal from the Public Eye
In recent weeks, Melania Trump has made a conscious effort to withdraw from the public eye, largely due to her husband's ongoing legal battles.
The former First Lady was noticeably absent from New York during her husband's recent indictment, and her office issued a statement via Twitter, cautioning readers to exercise caution when determining the accuracy of stories concerning the former First Lady.
The statement 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."
The State of the Trump Marriage
Speculation about the state of the Trump marriage has been rampant in the media, with sources close to the family claiming that Melania cannot stand her husband's scandals.
The couple currently resides together at the Mar-a-Lago resort, but insiders claim that they lead separate lives, barely crossing paths. A source told The Mirror, "Their paths barely cross. Melania is no different to any woman.
Having her husband accused of cheating on her not just once but twice is extremely disturbing. There is little wonder people believe it's not just the criminal court Trump is heading to but possibly a divorce one too." In light of the recent allegations against her husband, including the alleged hush money payment, a source told PEOPLE last month that Melania remains angry and doesn't want the matter to be mentioned.
Despite the turmoil, the former First Lady has remained poised, focusing on her family and close friends to keep her life upbeat. "She is aware of who her husband is and keeps her life upbeat with her own family and a few close friends," the source said.
