Melania Trump staying low after kidney surgery, wants Trump presidency to end: Reports
Since the beginning of the Donald Trump presidency, critics have accused America’s first couple of being in a loveless marriage. Their obvious lack of chemistry during their first dance as president and first lady, and Melania Trump swatting her husband’s had when she thought no one was looking have only added fuel to the fire.
Obviously, democrats speculated that the Slovenian beauty was only interested in Trump’s wealth and stature. However, recent revelations from certain sources close to the first couple suggest that she actually prioritizes her marriage over power and politics.
The 48-year-old first lady, who underwent kidney surgery on May 14, is staying low for the time being and according to Hollywood Life this choice is not just to focus on her health. While her health is of optimum importance, she also wants to utilize this downtime to focus on bettering her marriage to the 71-year-old president of the United States.
According a source quoted by HL, “Melania has been taking a little ‘me time’ to work on fully regaining her health, and to try and strengthen her marriage again. It’s been a hideously stressful past few months, and Melania needs a break out of the media glare to recharge her batteries and take stock.”
Meanwhile, the pressure on the president has only gotten higher, which has allegedly translated to worst mood swings, which makes for a tense atmosphere at home. While Melania realizes that things would never go back to exactly how they were before the Trump presidency, she hopes for some form of semblance to return after his term is over and hopes to this end that it is over pretty soon.
According to the source, “Donald has been under an ever increasing ton of pressure, so he definitely isn’t in the best of moods, which makes for a pretty tense atmosphere at home,” the source continued. “Melania really is getting to the point now where she just wishes Donald’s presidency was over, and she can’t wait to return to her ‘regular’ life again, even though she realizes it will never be quite the same.”
According to a statement from her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, Melania was taken to the Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland for an embolization surgery to treat a benign kidney condition. The surgery was successful and was expected to remain hospitalized for the remainder of the week for observation.
Although the president was not present during the procedure, he reportedly spoke to Melania before the procedure and with her doctor afterward. On Friday morning, a reported asked Trump, who was boarding the Marine One helicopter to attend the US Naval Academy commencement ceremonies, where his wife was, to which he replied by pointing to the White House and saying "she's doing great. She's looking at us right there."
