Is Melania Trump ready to be first lady again? Report claims she supports Donald's rerun in 2024
The former First Lady, 51, appears to be embracing public life once again after months of stepping back from the public eye
Donald Trump became the first former president to attend a Log Cabin Republicans event, albeit he had a couple of reasons to be there. The annual Spirit of Lincoln dinner was held at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida last Saturday, November 20. Secondly, the Republican LGBTQ+ group’s top honoree this year was Melania Trump.
The former First Lady appears to be embracing public life once again after months of stepping back from the public eye. She made two glamorous appearances with her husband by her side at back-to-back gala events over the weekend. The 51-year-old has maintained a relatively demure lifestyle since relocating to Florida earlier this year when her husband's presidency came to an end. That said, she now appears ready to step back into the limelight.
75-year-old Donald has hinted on several occasions that he is planning to run for the White House once again in 2024, and his latest appearance with Melania on Saturday further fueled the prospect. “This was their first joint appearance in the buildup to his 2024 presidential run,” one source told Richard Johnson of the New York Daily News. “Melania was telling pals she will fully support Donald’s rerun for president and that she’s ready to be the first lady again.”
Thank you @LogCabinGOP, Liberty Education Forum, @RichardGrenell for a wonderful evening dedicated to celebrating our Nation’s valued principals of equality & diversity for all.

Judith Giuliani, Andrea Catsimatidis, and Jeanine Pirro were spotted at the Spirit of Lincoln dinner. Also in attendance was Kimberly Guilfoyle, who told Jane Scher, the mother of socialite Libbie Mugrabi, that her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr was "off hunting with the boys."
Melania was reportedly sifting through thousands of photos from her time at the White House for a forthcoming coffee table book to be published next year. “Melania Trump was a popular first lady with the highest approval ratings out of the entire Trump family," another source told Johnson.
Donald and Melania's public displays of solidarity came shortly after Trump told Fox News that he's "certainly thinking about" a potential 2024 bid. However, he said he would confirm his campaign after seeing the Democrats' performance in the 2022 midterms. "I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms," the 45th POTUS said.
As noted by the Daily Mail, the Log Cabin Republicans normally hold the event every year in Washington D.C. However, they decided to move it to Trump's club in Mar-a-Lago this year "just so Melania could come."

The former First Lady rendered a hopeful speech after accepting the award. "As I look around the room, the word 'courage' comes to mind," she said. "It is the courageous spirit within each of you that has brought us together this evening and it is the courageous spirit of Abraham Lincoln, which gives us our guiding light today."

Her husband stood by her side throughout the event and watched her adoringly when she went up to accept the honor.

Melania took a major step back from the public eye after exiting the White House, while her husband has continued to make regular appearances. She was last seen in public on October 30, when she joined Trump at a World Series game between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros.
