Donald Trump, business mogul and former president of the United States of America, is facing 34 felony charges related to the falsification of business records. These allegations stem from an alleged effort to conceal a $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, aimed at preventing her from disclosing a previous sexual encounter she claimed to have had with Trump years ago—an accusation vehemently denied by Trump.

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.

The former president has repeatedly denied wrongdoing in the matter and pleaded “not guilty.”

A source “who has been briefed on the procedures for the arraignment of the former president” told Yahoo that Trump was not put in handcuffs, placed in a jail cell, or forced to have a mugshot taken.

People close to Melania Trump 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.

Stormy Daniels’ testimony involved details of her journey into exotic dancing and provided information about her encounter with Trump in July 2006.

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 16: Adult film actress Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) exits the United States District Court Southern District of New York for a hearing related to Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney and confidante, April 16, 2018 in New York City. Cohen and lawyers representing President Trump are asking the court to block Justice Department officials from reading documents and materials related to Cohen’s relationship with President Trump that they believe should be protected by attorney-client privilege.

She has also seemed to have confirmed a detail regarding the former president’s relationship with his wife, Melania.

In response to questioning, Daniels testified that Trump’s bodyguard, Keith Schiller, asked her if she wanted to join Trump for dinner, which she refused. However, upon her publicist’s insisting, she agreed and found herself arriving at the penthouse floor where she encountered Schiller and noticed a partially open door to Trump’s room.

According to her, Trump was wearing satin pajamas and she asked him to change, which she did. What followed was a conversation during which the business mogul asked “very thought-out business questions” about Daniels’ work.

“He asked about the business aspects of it. Are there any unions, do you get residuals, how are people paid. Do you get health insurance. What about testing. Are you worried about STDs?” she recalled on the stand.

“The intention was pretty clear: somebody stripped down to their underwear and is posing for you,” Stormy Daniels told the court.

“He stood up between me and the door. Not in a threatening manner. He didn’t come at me, he didn’t rush at me. Nothing like that. When I exited he was just up on the bed, like this.”

While he was interested into Daniels’ personal life, their discussion about him and his wife Melania, who had recently given birth to their son Barron, was described as “very brief.”

Daniels recalled asking Trump about his wife and commenting of her beauty, and remembered him saying “We don’t sleep in the same room.”

Melania not appearing at court by her husband’s side could be beneficial, according to Berkeley Law professor John Yoo.

“I could see how some jurors would ask where Melania Trump was. Perhaps her presence would show her support for Trump’s story that his fling with Stormy never happened,” he explained.

“But her presence would also buy into the prosecution’s underhanded effort to make the trial about Stormy [Daniels], and not about whether any bookkeeping misdemeanors occurred and whether they concealed some greater crime.”

Melania is also absent from Trump’s presidential rallies across the country, but that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t have an important role later on.

“She’ll definitely have a role, but in terms of what that is, I don’t know,” a source close to the Trump campaign told CNN. “It is her decision on how much or how little she will be campaigning.”

“She is very selective and methodical in what she wants to do and how she presents herself,” another source close to the former president said. “She is very decisive with these things and knows they have a lot of intended and unintended consequences.”

Not being by her husband’s side in the New York courtroom doesn’t mean Melania is not supportive of him.

She doesn’t love being under the spotlight, but does what she loves away from the public. One thing about her is that she’s into fashion.

In the past, Melania has released a jewelry collection, and last week, she promoted USA Memoribilia’s Fortitude Collection, featuring a pair of necklaces.

“The Fortitude Collection celebrates our service members, our Nation, and our freedom,” the USA Memorabilia’s website states. Further, the website adds that each design “can be engraved with names, initials, significant dates, and symbols to create a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.”

“Those who purchase a design can also receive a limited-edition digital collectible,” USA Memorabilia writes.

When she promoted it on her Instagram, the opinions regarding the collection were different. While some consider the pieces of jewelry “beautiful” and “wonderful,” there were also those who slammed her and accused her of profiting off veterans.

“Zero Trumps have served in the US military, grifter,” one user wrote.

Very cheap items sold at very high prices to people who need to choose between food, medicine, or baubles sold by a billionaire who will never look at them under any other circumstances,” another added.

“SHILLING off of our dead veterans, disgusting. And not a DIME will go to any actual charities. If it did, you guys would take most of the money,” a third stated.

A month ago, Melania Trump introduced her Mother’s Day necklace, which retailed for $245 each. Described as a “customizable necklace designed by Melania Trump to honor all mothers,” each piece included the former first lady’s signature.
