Donald Trump reveals why wife Melania not appearing at his campaign rallies

In a recent town hall with Laura Ingraham, former President Donald Trump addressed inquiries about the participation of his wife, Melania Trump, in his 2024 presidential campaign rallies. Melania’s involvement has been notably reduced compared to the 2016 campaign, sparking speculation and questions about her withdrawal from public appearances.

The former First Lady has refrained from public comments or engagements related to the election, prompting critics to ponder her apparent distancing from public life. The speculation intensified when she was conspicuously absent from the Trump family Christmas card, raising further curiosity about her role and intentions.

Donald Trump clarified the reasons behind Melania’s absence during his New Year’s Eve party, revealing that her mother, Amalija Knavs, was seriously ill at the time. He explained in a speech at Mar-a-Lago that Melania was by her mother’s side in a Miami hospital during this challenging period. Sadly, Knavs passed away in January at the age of 78.

During the South Carolina town hall, Ingraham asked Trump about the possibility of Melania taking a more active role in the campaign, drawing parallels to the involvement of current First Lady Jill Biden in President Joe Biden’s campaigns. Trump acknowledged the question, praising Melania’s qualities and acknowledging her popularity among supporters.

Trump highlighted Melania’s brilliance, multilingual abilities, and her dedication to their 17-year-old son, Barron Trump. He emphasized her commitment to the country’s success and charitable efforts, portraying her as a private person who values results over public exposure. Despite Melania’s preference for privacy, Trump assured the audience that she would be more involved in the campaign, driven by her desire to see the country succeed.

The former president expressed that Melania’s role in the campaign would be significant, as she had played a crucial part in the past and would continue to offer valuable advice. He acknowledged her intelligence and compassion, emphasizing her shared goal of making America great again.

Currently leading the GOP polls nationally at 77.7 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight, Donald Trump provided updates on Melania’s potential involvement, stating that she would play a substantial role. However, he also expressed a desire for a balanced level of family activity in the campaign, considering their effective contributions in the previous election.
