It looks like history won’t be broken by Melania Trump anytime soon, at least not when it comes to divorce. No first lady has ever ended her marriage to the president, but Donald Trump‘s salacious Stormy Daniels scandal had us thinking that Melania might be the first. However, a new report claims that that isn’t the case, thanks to just one reason: her son Barron.
Barron, and Donald Trump.
“Regardless of any animosity between the two, she will not seek any type of divorce with Donald while he is in office,” a source reportedly told Hollywood Life. “She is focused solely on Barron and his well being and will not do anything to disrupt that or get in the way of that. So something as big as divorce would be astronomical at any time, but while Donald was in office would be something even Melania wouldn’t want to take part in.”
However, this doesn’t mean that Melania isn’t mad as hell about the past infidelity. There have been several signs that she’s upset. She wasn’t seen in public with him for more than a month, she canceled a trip abroad with him, she arrived separately to the State of the Union address, and she left him out of her tweet celebrating one year in the White House, so we can read between the lines.
Trump risks losing favor with his supporters if Melania was to leave him, which could hurt his chances of getting reelected in 2020. As a matter of fact, Trump already has some strikes against him when it comes to divorce. He’s had two wives before Melania, which is almost unheard of for a president. The only president before Trump that had been divorced in his life was Ronald Reagan, but that happened long before his presidency and voters were confident with the stability of his second marriage to Nancy Reagan. We expect Trump to do whatever he can to ensure that Melania doesn’t leave him.
