This was Melania’s first public outing since the funeral of her mother in January, which clearly took a toll on her. Despite her absence from the spotlight, Melania’s stylist, Herve Pierre Braillard, has been raking in over $100,000 from Trump’s super PAC in the last six months.
Trump has been relying on Melania’s advice for his campaign and has stated that she will be “active” in upcoming events. However, she has not been seen on the campaign trail, with her last public appearance being the Naturalization Ceremony at the National Archives in December.
While Melania has been out of the spotlight, Trump has been facing numerous legal battles that have cost him millions of dollars in legal fees. His Save America leadership PAC and the Make America Great Again PAC spent a whopping $56 million on legal expenses last year alone, with $30 million being spent in the last half of the year.
These legal expenses have often kept Trump off the campaign trail, impacting his ability to connect with voters. However, he has used them as an opportunity to fundraise, appealing to his loyal supporters around the country in a bid to fight back against the charges brought against him.
Amidst all of this, the latest blow to Trump’s fortune was a jury’s ruling that he must pay $83 million in damages for defaming writer E. Jean Carroll. This verdict has not only hit Trump financially but also adds to his already extensive legal battles.
Despite these challenges, Trump remains a strong and popular figure in the conservative movement. His popularity amongst his supporters has not wavered, as evident by the millions of dollars raised for his legal defense.
As for Melania, her return to the public eye at Mar-a-Lago is a clear indication of her enduring strength and grace. Her support for her husband throughout these turbulent times is a reminder of her unwavering commitment to the success of their mission to “Make America Great Again.”
