After Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential elections, many questioned Melania Trump’s feelings about returning to the White House for a potential second term in 2024. Months later, Donald had an answer when he was asked this question by “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade. “Is it true that the former first lady, Melania Trump, has told you ‘I’m not going back if you run again’?” Kilmeade asked Donald, per the New York Post.
The former president immediately denied it. “No, that’s not true. That’s an interesting one. More fake news,” he claimed. “She was a great first lady, she did a great job. She loves the people, they love her, I see how they love her,” he continued. “But no, I will say this: We have to fix our country. Our country is going bad. We’re not going to have a country if we keep doing this.”
Donald can only speak for himself, and sources close to Melania have had varying opinions. One source told CNN that she does not want to be the first lady again and that “for her, it was a chapter — and it’s over, and that’s that.” Another source, a close family friend to the Trumps, had a different opinion. “If [Trump] runs, she will be right there. She’s not going to have her own rallies,” the source told Politico. “But did she ever?”
