(GoRealNewsNow.com) – New reports have now revealed why former First Lady Melania Trump was missing from this year’s Trump family Christmas card – and the reason for her absence is a tragic one as she has been taking care of her ailing mother.
Melania Trump was notably absent from the Trump family’s Christmas card photo, an omission that was the subject of speculation on social media.
The family’s holiday photograph, which was taken at their Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, featured former President Donald Trump, his children Don Jr., Ivanka, and Tiffany, their spouses, and Barron Trump, as well as several grandchildren.
However, Melania Trump was not present in the image, The Daily Caller points out.
Reports have emerged stating that Melania Trump’s absence is due to her commitment to caring for her ailing mother, Amalija Knavs, who is currently hospitalized and seriously ill.
According to these reports, Melania has been continuously by her mother’s side during this time.
A source close to the former first lady commented on her dedication to her family.
“Melania has always been very devoted to her entire family. It should be no surprise that she spent this Christmas with her ailing mother,” the source said.
Since leaving the White House, Melania Trump has largely remained out of the public eye.
However, there have been unconfirmed reports suggesting that she and Donald Trump have reached an agreement regarding her increased public presence in the near future.
An unnamed source informed Page Six that “Trump and his family are so secure that he will become president again that insiders at Mar-a-Lago say he’s reached an agreement with Melania to step up top-tier diplomatic appearances in 2024.”
“Melania realizes it’s her time to join the ranks of historic First Ladies and leave her mark on history … she feels better prepared for her potential role the second time around,” the source further added.
This statement implies confidence in Donald Trump’s potential return to the presidency and suggests that Melania Trump is gearing up for a more prominent role in the public sphere.
Donald Trump presently holds a lead of dozens of points on his opponents for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
