Jill Biden leads president off stage as Melania Trump steps up public appearances

 January 9, 2024

First Lady Jill Biden faced widespread mockery on New Year's Eve, with one social media user likening the dress she wore to a "tablecloth" while another complained that she "is no Melania Trump."

That humbling experience likely won't be unique, as Page Six reported that Mrs. Biden's predecessor will take an active role in her husband's campaign. 

Melania Trump said to be "feeling more sure of herself"

The website cited an unnamed source as saying that former President Donald Trump recently "reached an agreement with [wife] Melania [Trump] to step up top-tier diplomatic appearances in 2024."

According to the source, Mrs. Trump is "feeling more sure of herself — as both her husband’s representative and her own position as a diplomatic figure."

"Melania realizes it’s her time to join the ranks of historic first ladies and leave her mark on history… She feels better prepared for her potential role the second time around," the source added.

The anonymous figure went on to insist that "[t]he immediate family including Melania is solidly behind the former president."

Mrs. Trump spoke at naturalization ceremony for new Americans

According to Fox News, Mrs. Trump appeared at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. where she addressed a group of immigrants who were about to be naturalized.

The former first lady recalled her experience of coming to the United States, saying, "It is my privilege to share this great nation, America, with you. For me, reaching the milestone of American citizenship marked the sunrise of certainty."

Mrs. Trump also emphasized the "responsibility" that comes with being an American, declaring, "It means actively participating in the democratic process and guarding our freedom."

Jill Biden had to walk the president off stage

Meanwhile, the current first lady is also likely to have an outsized role in her husband's campaign, as Fox News reported that she took President Biden by the hand and led him off stage after giving a speech last week.

That move came amid longstanding concerns over her husband's declining mental acuity, including from former White House doctor and Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson.

"This man can't do the job. He's proven to us every single day that he can't do the job, but this is going to get worse," Jackson told Fox News in November.

"We cannot afford to have this man in office for the remainder of this term and then [for] another four years after that," Jackson added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
