esident has been on the campaign trail for months, scoring wins in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. Many things point towards him becoming the Republican presidential candidate, but his wife, Melania Trump, has not been seen at his side.

Melania and her family have gone through some tough times since the passing of her mother, Amalija, in January. The former FLOTUS has said she will support her husband in a second Presidential race; however, it appears she has more important things to focus on.

Since the funeral of Melania’s mother, things have been very quiet. Now, Donald Trump shares why she hasn’t been at his side.

Melania Trump’s life has changed plenty in the last few months, not least because of the passing of her mother, Amalija.

On January 9, it was announced that Amalija had passed away at the age of 78.

Melania Trump wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, “Amalija Knavs was a strong woman who always carried herself with grace, warmth, and dignity. She was entirely devoted to her husband, daughters, grandson, and son-in-law. We will miss her beyond measure and continue to honor and love her legacy.”

Amalija Knavs’ funeral was held at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, on January 18. The funeral was private, and many of Trump’s family members attended.

During the private funeral, Melania Trump delivered an emotional eulogy, paying tribute to her mother’s “unparalleled affection.” She remembered her mother as “a ray of light in the darkest of days.”

“She embodied the best mother, wife, grandmother, mother-in-law – a true beacon of love and luxury in our lives,” Melania Trump said, adding that her mother’s “beauty and impeccable sense of style turned the heads of many.”

“She’s a true inspiration, a role model to me, and to so many,” the former FLOTUS said, concluding her seven-minute eulogy with, “Rest in peace, my beloved mummy.”

Analyzing a picture of Melania, Barron, and Donald Trump outside of the church, body language Judi James said the former president “seems to have adopted a pose similar to his wife Melania” and “looking much more vulnerable than usual, with his arms falling to the front of his torso and a reflective-looking frown on his face.”

While Melania Trump and her family said goodbye to her late mother, the talks about her relationship with her husband have been going on for a relatively long time. Melania and Donald have been pictured not even traveling in the same car, and she was said not to have wanted to be supporting him in person through his many legal battles in the last year.

Just months ago, Donald and Melania attended the funeral of the former president’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry. Body language expert Judi James then stated that Donald Trump, through his actions, revealed what his relationship with his wife is like.

“There is one moment on the steps outside the church when Trump appears to attempt to adopt a strong presidential pose, standing upright with his jaw squared and his head lifted, but otherwise, he looks like a man stricken by grief,” James said.

Moreover, Judi added that Donald held his wife Melania’s hand, which was telling.

“His tight clasp on Melania’s hand looks as though it is for practical as well as emotional support. Walking down the steps he seems to lean heavily on his wife for support so that her shoulders tilt towards him in a hint that he is placing some weight on that clasp.”

The presidential race in the United States is on. After speculations about whether he should be, Donald Trump is looking to secure a second presidential term after losing the 2020 election to Joe Biden.

Melania Trump “good at taking care of business,” source says

So far, Trump has won the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Republican primary, and many things point toward him becoming the Republican candidate for the 2024 Presidential election.

When rumors about Trump planning on running for a second presidential term began circulating, many wondered whether Melania Trump would be on board with the idea.

Since their 17-year-old Barron Trump was born, Melania has been by his side, protecting him from the media. When his father became president, it became evident that she needed to shield him even more – not mainly from journalists possibly approaching Barron, but also from him reading about his father.

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump has been involved in several trials recently – and his mugshot going viral – the former first lady has decided to stay away from the public to protect herself and Barron.

“Melania is good at taking care of business at hand, which includes her own life, the life of her son, and the lives of her close family members,” the source told People Magazine

“She would not stand in a circle of people she knows and openly comment on the lawsuits or the mug shot. She will have her way of dealing with this and anything else publicly when she feels like it,” the source added. “Remember, Melania is a mom with a not-yet-adult son to protect. A mug shot that everyone is talking about is just one more issue to wade through.”

Melania changed her mind on returning to the White House

Barron Trump’s time at his Palm Beach school is coming to a close, and in the fall, he is expected to enroll in college. Where is not yet decided; however, Melania Trump will continue to be at her son’s side for as long as possible before he flies the nest.

As the presidential election, and firstly, the nomination for the Republican candidate, is getting closer, Donald Trump has been appearing increasingly in the media. Some weeks ago, his comments on his Republican presidential candidate opposition, Nikki Haley’s husband, became a huge news story.

Hundreds of articles are written about Trump each day. As he, as mentioned, appears in the media frequently, the focus – and pressure – on his family becomes evident.

In 2021, according to CNN, Melania Trump reportedly didn’t support her husband to seek a second presidential term as she felt she was done with the White House. However, last summer, she had changed her mind. Speaking with Fox News, Melania wished to return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.

She explained how she looked forward to working alongside her husband to restore “hope for the future” and “leading America with love and strength” for a second presidential term.

“My husband achieved tremendous success in his first administration, and he can lead us toward greatness and prosperity once again,” the former first lady said. “He has my support, and we look forward to restoring hope for the future and leading America with love and strength.”

While Melania supports her husband in becoming president again, she has not been seen on the campaign trail next to him. Meanwhile, First Lady Jill Biden has been by her husband, President Joe Biden, and taken on an important role before the election.

Donald Trump shares real reason why Melania Trump isn’t on the campaign trail

What Melania is doing is on the minds of many people, not least Trump voters. Therefore, during a recent town hall meeting, Fox News Host Laura Ingraham asked Donald Trump if Melania would join him at his rallies.

“It’s a question I’m asked a lot, that Jill Biden is everywhere,” Ingraham said. “She’s campaigning everywhere for Joe Biden and she did in 2020.”

She continued, “Will we see more of your secret weapon, for those of us who know your wife, Melania? Will we see more of her this time around, given her ability to speak so many languages… [she’s] so wonderful with children and everyone? I think a lot of people here want to see more of her.”

Donald Trump didn’t take long to answer, which was somewhat expected. Right now, her dedication lies with their son, Barron.

“They love her, I’ll tell you,” Trump responded. “And you know her. She’s a very brilliant person. She speaks many languages, the whole thing.”

“Her life revolves around that boy, [he’s] so important to her. At the same time, it also revolves around our country and the success of our country. She’s raised a lot of money for charity.”

“She loves the country”

The former president continued, “She’s a private person. It’s funny; she was a very successful model, very, very successful, and yet she was a private person. She’s going to be out a lot, not because she likes doing it, but she likes the result. She wants to see this country really succeed.”

“[The people] love the fact that she’s not out there so much. You know, a lot of first ladies will go out. They want to be everywhere. They get angry at their husband because he’s not introducing them. If I didn’t introduce Melania she’d be very happy about it. She’s just a different kind of a person. And she loves the country.”

Donald Trump concluded, “She’s gonna be out quite a bit, and she loves his country, and she wants a great, and she says hello.”
