Melania stays 'away' from Donald Trump's ongoing arrest drama to protect son Barron, reveals source
MAR-A-LAGO, CALIFORNIA: Melania Trump reportedly does not want to be a part of the ongoing drama surrounding her husband, Donald Trump. According to reports, the former president is all in regarding his potential arrest and indictment but his wife is simply not interested.
An insider told Page Six, “She wants to be away from it. She wants to protect [their son] Barron. Melania is lying very low. She hasn’t been coming out for the dinners and events at Mar-a-Lago. He is acting like everything is normal, but she hasn’t been social.”

'They want nothing to do with this'
Not just, the former first lady but the former first daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, are also reportedly avoiding the chaos. Another source spilled, “They want nothing to do with this. They are staying away and don’t want to be hounded by reporters. I don’t think you will see them defending him, it will be no comment.”
“Ivanka lost a lot of friends and her social scenes during his presidency… They want to put it in the rearview. They want it behind them,” the tipster added. This comes after a statement was issued by Ivanka in November last year in which she cleared that she’s leaving politics and won’t be part of her father’s team anymore.
'I love my father very much'
The 41-year-old reportedly shared, “I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics.” Ivanka added, “While I always love and support my father, going forward, I will do so outside the political arena. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments.”
However, in contrast to his family’s reaction, Trump is apparently enjoying the probable indictment. A source said that the 45th president and his allies “are very pumped about this. . . If an indictment and arrest happen, he wants it to be public.” His team will “try and film and document it with their own camera crew, they want a shot of him in cuffs and will release the mugshot. They are loving this stuff,” another insider claimed. A tipster also revealed that Trump's “reveling in being back in the news and the center of attention. He thinks this ‘trumped-up charge’ will help him with his base.”
'Falsely impeached, cheated, and lied'
This comes as Trump slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who brought the criminal case against him. “Isn’t it terrible that D.A. Bragg refuses to do the right thing and ‘call it a day?’ He would rather indict an innocent man and create years of hatred, chaos, and turmoil than give him his well-deserved ‘freedom’. The whole country sees what is going on, and they're not going to take it anymore,” The 76-year-old shared on his Truth Social platform, according to Daily Mail. Trump further asserted, “They’ve had enough! There was no error made, no misdemeanor, no crime, and, above all, NO CASE. They spied on my campaign, Rigged the election, falsely impeached, cheated, and lied. They are HUMAN SCUM!”
