Melania Trump tells reporters to "stay tuned" when asked about her role in campaign

 March 21, 2024

Most observers say that former President Donald Trump is now all but assured of securing the Republican Party's nomination this summer.

That has led to speculation over what role former First Lady Melania Trump will play in his reelection efforts. However, Mrs. Trump recently gave a cryptic answer when asked about her plans for the rest of 2024.  

Former first lady tells reporters to "stay tuned"

According to Fox News, the issue came up when she and the former president showed up at the Morton and Barbara Mandel Recreation Center in Palm Beach on Tuesday.

The couple were there to vote in Florida's Republican primary election, and when reporters inquired as to whether Mrs. Trump would join her husband on the campaign trail, she told them to "stay tuned."

Fox News noted that former President Trump spoke of his wife during an interview with the network's host Laura Ingraham, saying, "It's funny, she was a very successful model, very, very successful, and yet she was a private person."

Trump explained that his wife will be "going to be out a lot" on the campaign trail, "Not because she likes doing it, but she likes the results. She wants to see this country really succeed. She loves the country."

Report claims Mr. and Mrs. Trump have "reached an agreement"

"You know, a lot of first ladies would go out — they want to be everywhere. They get angry at their husband because he’s not introducing them," he remarked.

"If I didn’t introduce Melania, she’d be very happy about it. She’s just a different kind of a person," the former president went on to stress.

Meanwhile, Page Six reported in January that an unnamed source said former President Trump had "reached an agreement with [wife] Melania [Trump] to step up top-tier diplomatic appearances in 2024."

The source went on to declare that 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.

Former first lady addressed new citizens

One high-profile move came earlier this year when the former first lady appeared at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and 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."
