Former first lady Melanie Trump is reportedly ‘bitter and chilly’ with her husband Donald over their White House exit, she is currently preoccupied with having spa treatments, including massages and facials in their Florida home.
She also reportedly opts for light, fish-focused meals on its terrace and also spends time with her parents.
According to a report by CNN published on Friday, February 12, the former US First Lady is said to be angered by the way she left Washington DC under a cloud last month in the wake of the US Capitol riots.
She is reportedly furious that her image was also tarnished by her husband’s appearance at a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally, which saw thousands of his supporters descend on the US Capitol shortly after.
Explaining Melania’s controversial silence in the wake of the riots, a former aide said to CNN:
‘She could see how it was going to go for her. Once (the insurrection) happened, she knew there was nothing to gain for her by speaking out or doing something – so she didn’t do anything.’
Another aide told CNN: ‘She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again) and has dinner with Donald on the patio. Rinse and repeat. Every day.’
Melania’s routine is said to be very similar to how she spent her days while working as first lady.
She is said to have been angered at the media attention given to her successor Jill Biden, although aides say Melania turned down interview requests with many of the publications that have already featured Jill.
Melania left a note for Jill, but has not spoken to her, and did not invite her for the traditional tour of the White House before she and her husband left office.
