US Weekly has reported its sources are saying that Melania Trump is incredibly unhappy as First Lady, which isn’t really a surprise.
Melania Trump is reportedly struggling with the realities of her new role and the scrutiny that comes with it.
“This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s. Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.”
Since inauguration day, Melania has spent most of her time hiding in their lavish penthouse apartment in Trump Tower in NYC. Never a fixture on the NYC social scene, “she is staying hidden more,” claims Philip Bloch, a well-known stylist and friend of Trump.
From US Weekly:
According to a family source, not even Barron can get her out the gold-plated front door. Pre-inauguration, Melania would shuttle her son in a chauffeured SUV to and from his private school. But that was before picketers took up residence outside her building. Now, claims the source, “Melania has the Secret Service take Barron to school and retrieve him.”
Melania has left her $100 million apartment a handful of times. But aside from one outing to run errands January 30, she has usually headed to her other (luxurious) home. The first lady joined Donald, 70, at Mar-a-Lago, their $300 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida, the weekend of February 3. She went the following weekend too — with a quick pit stop in Washington, D.C., to catch a ride on Air Force One with Donald and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie. “Melania says she’s most happy at Mar-a-Lago,” says a source close to the first lady. “She loves Palm Beach!”
