According to an exclusive in US Magazine, Melania Trump is staying put in New York City.
Though Donald Trump and his wife Melania announced in November that the first lady would relocate from New York City to Washington D.C. once their 10-year-old son Barron finished up the school year, a family insider reveals that may not happen.
“They will reevaluate toward the end of the school year if they will keep this arrangement or if Melania and Barron will move to Washington,” says the source. “They could go either way right now. They will ultimately do what’s best for Barron.”
From Us Magazine:
Though living 200 miles apart is unprecedented for a president and first lady, it suits the fiercely independent Donald just fine. When ABC News anchor David Muir asked if not having Melania, or Barron around left him feeling lonely, he responded, “No, because I end up working longer. And that’s OK.”
For the time being, Donald, Melania and Barron will take turns shuttling 90 minutes door to door between their $100 million triplex apartment at 721 Fifth Avenue and the White House. In a January 25 New York Times article, Donald declared, “They’ll come down on weekends.”
It should be noted that Melania was in NYC this past weekend, and NOT the White House. She is expected to travel with Trump to Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida this weekend.
