So how is Melania Trump feeling about saying goodbye to the White House? As Donald Trump and his wife reportedly prepare to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently, she is not exactly expecting to feel homesick. “(Melania Trump) is not sad to be leaving,” one White House official claimed to CNN. Per the outlet, Melania is supposedly showing “expediency in getting packed and ready to go,” which “also signals her desire to be done with Washington and the last four years of dramatic highs and lows.” Yup, Melania seems pretty good to go.
Author Andersen Brower elaborated to CNN, “Pat Nixon is the most recent example I can think of a first lady who compares at all to Melania Trump… As Watergate raged on, Pat Nixon spent lots of time sequestered in her room alone in the Residence.”
Meanwhile, Melania has seemingly sided with Donald Trump on not getting friendly with the Biden family. It’s a tradition for presidents to invite the next president to stay overnight in the guest house at the White House the night before they are sworn in, per CNN. That invitation reportedly was sent to Joe Biden and Jill Biden, but supposedly not “at Melania Trump’s insistence,” per CNN. “She had nothing to do with it,” one staffer alleged to the outlet. Oop.
