Speaking to Meet the Press journalist Kristen Welker, Donald explained that he decided to keep his wife out of the public eye.
“Honestly, I like to keep her away from that. It’s so disgusting and so cruel,” she explained via People.
Despite that, he said that his wife was very supportive of him and that at some point she would campaign with him. When? “Soon, yes, very soon. When appropriate, but very soon.”
Meanwhile, Melania is with her son Barron.
Donald opined that his wife is “very popular” but appreciates not being in the public eye. “She’s a private person, a great person, a very confident person, and she loves our country very much,” she said.
Melania has remained silent about her husband’s multiple controversies since leaving office. In May, a source explained why she was unlikely to publicly respond to the loss of her husband in court before E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of raping her in 1996. If you forgot, he was held responsible in a trial for assault and defamation and owes his accuser $5 million.
