Melania Trump avoids spotlight after husband's conviction

 May 31, 2024

Donald Trump's wife Melania is staying out of the spotlight in the aftermath of her husband's guilty verdict in his "hush money" trial.

While she has remained silent about the case, insiders told People that she views it as a "political assassination" just like her husband does.

Melania out of spotlight

The trial was dominated by a topic that is a sensitive one for Melania: her husband's alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.

As the trial neared its end, members of Trump's family congregated at the courthouse to show their support, including his children Donald Jr., Eric, and Tiffany, and his daughter-in-law Lara, who co-chairs the RNC.

When Trump gave lengthy remarks about the verdict on Friday, Melania was again nowhere in sight.

Insider sources told People that Melania knows her husband has a wandering eye and is "angry" about things he has done, but she shares his view that he has been treated unfairly.

“Melania believes this is a political assassination, but she knows exactly who she married," a social source says, "and for this reason has chosen to stay away from media attention to protect herself and her son Barron."

Family reacts to verdict

Some of Trump's more vocal relatives have echoed his anger with the polarizing verdict, which has been denounced by many as a political sham.

"Guilty on all counts. The Democrats have succeeded in their years long attempt to turn America into a third-world s*******," Donald Jr. wrote. "November 5 is our last chance to save it."

Ivanka Trump did not attend the trial but showed solidarity with her father online, writing, "I love you Dad," after he was found guilty.

Melania's only child with Donald Trump, Barron, also did not make an appearance. Barron's mother and father were seen together at Barron's high school graduation in May.

Many will be watching to see if Melania makes an appearance at her husband's sentencing on July 11, just a few days before the Republican National Convention. But some say it would not be her style.

"There are certain times she has to show. This could be one of those, but it would not be her idea," a source said. "To stand by her man in a traditional first lady way, no."

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