Will Melania attend Trump's first public speech since leaving White House? Doubts raised amid divorce rumors
As rumors about his marriage to Melania continue doing the rounds, it appears that she might not attend the speech after all
Former President Donald Trump will soon be making his first public speech since leaving the White House on January 20, 2021. Trump is set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, on February 28, 2021. But many are asking whether former FLOTUS Melania Trump will also be attending the event.
As rumors about his marriage to Melania continue doing the rounds, it appears that she might not attend the speech after all.
According to reports, it is unclear whether Melania will accompany Trump during the conference as she did not attend the previous CPAC conference in 2019 where Trump hugged an American flag onstage.
Melania and Trump have reportedly been distant since they left the White House. Several reports have surfaced that claim about the dire state of their relationship. According to divorce experts, Melania has been living a separate life from Donald for "many years". A former friend claimed that the couple also sleeps in different beds.
Ever since their exit from the White House, it is reported that Melania wants to "disappear" from the public eye. R Couri Hay, a society publicist who has been described as a "friendly acquaintance" of the Trump, told The Times, "Melania will disappear. There's not going to be any Instagram posts or Twitter posts, you're not going to see it." Hay continued, "Melania is not a political activist any more than she is a social activist. When she married Donald Trump, that was the top of the ladder for her."
After leaving Washinton D.C., Melania reportedly spent most of her time relaxing at the spa. Several anonymous sources spoke to CNN that her daily schedule has barely anything to do with politics. "She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again), and has dinner with Donald on the patio," said one insider familiar with Melania Trump's schedule at Mar-a-Lago, her new abode in Palm Beach, Florida. "Rinse and repeat. Every day." The same report also claimed that she was "bitter and chilly" at times with her husband.
But on Valentine's Day, Melania was spotted on her first outing with Trump. Several reports praised her for her Dolce & Gabbana LBD. On the final day of the conference, Trump is expected to deliver a keynote speech. It will be his first time addrFessing his supporters since losing the presidential election to Joe Biden. Reports are also doing the rounds that Trump will claim that he is the leader of the Republican party and its "presumptive 2024 nominee".
A longtime Trump adviser told Axios his CPAC speech will be a "show of force," aFnd said the message will be: "I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I'm still in charge." The source reportedly added that "payback is his chief obsession."
There was initial doubt about Trump's presence at the conference, but a spokesman for CPAC reportedly told the New York Post that he will be present.
