Donald Trump calls Melania ‘great first lady’ at gala dinner – confirms she wants to become first lady again

Donald Trump calls Melania ‘great first lady’ at gala dinner – confirms she wants to become first lady again.


It has been reported in the past that Melania Trump, the former First Lady and wife of business mogul Donald Trump, wasn’t eager to join her husband on his presidential campaign, but it seems that as elections are getting closer, she has changed her mind.

Trump stepped up the race for the 2024 presidency with some rather startling comments on several world issues, and his wife was spotted by his side at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. He has won both the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Republican primary, and most points toward him becoming the Republican candidate for the 2024 Presidential election, but at the same time, he’s splitting his time between the campaign trail and the courtroom. 

Recently, Trump testified in the E. Jean Carroll defamation trial, in which the former advice columnist and freelance writer is accusing Trump of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s.

Some of Trump’s comments cause quite a stir in the media. Among the rest, he was reported saying that he ‘would encourage’ Russia to attack NATO allies who do not pay their bills.

“NATO was busted until I came along,” Trump said at the rally held in Conway, South Carolina. “I said, ‘Everybody’s gonna pay.’ They said, ‘Well, if we don’t pay, are you still going to protect us?’ I said, ‘Absolutely not.’ They couldn’t believe the answer.”

Asked by “one of the presidents of a big country” if US would be willing to protect them in case they are “invaded” by Russia although they “don’t pay,” Trump was reported to have answered, “No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You got to pay. You got to pay your bills.”

During the last month, Melania suffered a personal tragedy when her mother passed away.

“Amalija Knavs was a strong woman who always carried herself with grace, warmth, and dignity,” the former First Lady said.

In the statement she released, Melania further wrote about her late mother that “[Amalija] 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.”

The news of Amalija’s ill state came to light when Melania was missing from the Christmas family photo. Back then, Donald Trump explained that his wife was absent because she was caring for her mother whose health deteriorated.

Amalija Knavs and her husband, Viktor, became US citizens in 2018 after living in the US on green cards sponsored by their daughter. 

Melania’s parents have always been by her and her sister’s side. They have been very supportive and did all in their power to provide a good life for their daughters. Even when they were very young, Amalija and Viktor took Melania and her sister Ines to trips around Europe, including France, Germany, and Italy.

When Trump became the President, Melania gave speech in the White House Rose Garden in which she thanked her parents.

“My parents worked very hard to ensure our family could not only live and prosper in America but also contribute to a nation that allows for people to arrive with a dream and make it a reality,” she said. “I want to take the moment to thank my mother and father for all that they have done for our family. It is because of you that I am standing here today.”

In 2021, some of Melania’s friends reported that she allegedly told them she didn’t want to be a First Lady again.

“Being the first lady again is not what she wants,” one person close to the Trump family told CNN back in September.

“For her, it was a chapter — and it’s over, and that’s that.”

Melania, just like Ivanka Trump, believes her place doesn’t belong into politics.

“You’re not going to see her at rallies or campaign events, even if he ‘officially’ says he’s running again,” another person said.

“Instead it’s going to be Lara (Eric Trump’s wife) or Kimberly Guilfoyle (Donald Trump Jr’s girlfriend). They have that same urge Trump has to run again; Melania absolutely does not.”

A couple of months ago, however, in an interview with Fox News, Melania said she looked forward to working alongside her husband again to restore “hope for the future” and “leading America with love and strength” for a second presidential term.

On Saturday night, Melania attended the Trumpettes gala and walked ahead of her husband while waving to the crowd.

In front of the attendees, Trump spoke of his wife and said, “First of all, our great first lady.” He also said that just like him, his wife also wants “to make America great again.”

“She’s gonna play, and she always did play a big role,” Trump told Fox News. “She was somebody that you could rely on.”

He added: “She’s very smart, a very compassionate person. And I would rely on her for advice. I think she’s going to be very active in the sense of being active, at the same time, I don’t want my family to be too active because they did such a great job last time.”
