Melania’s indifference documented
According to news.com.au, Melania Trump’s indifference toward her husband has been well documented. There were instances when she rejected Donald Trump’s effort to hold hands.
Earlier this year, the first lady and the president made an appearance at the NCAA College Football Championship. Melania was caught on camera smiling, but then, her facial expression changed when Trump reached out to hold her hand.
In another incident on the same outing, Melania snatched her hands away from the POTUS. Those scenarios convinced many that she was miserable with her marriage. Melania inadvertently fanned the flames with their awkward photo-op.

Melania and Donald Trump divorce rumors
A former aide claimed that Melania Trump was eager to divorce her husband, President Donald Trump. However, she couldn’t do it while he is the president.
The first lady was reportedly waiting that they would be out of the White House. Once he is no longer the president, she would dump him, and she was allegedly waiting for that day.
“In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of the office and she can divorce him,” Omarosa Manigault Newman wrote in her 2018 book Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
“If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave him while he’s in office, he would find a way to punish her,” she added.
The first couple says they have a great relationship
However, one should take the report with a grain of salt. Melania Trump and Donald Trump have spoken about their marriage multiple times and insisted that they have no marital issues.
The POTUS said they never argued. On the other hand, Melania said they have a “great relationship.”
