It’s been quite the year for Donald and Melania Trump. From the former president’s indictment, to the E Jean Carroll lawsuit, and now heading once again into a campaign trail, the Trump family has had plenty on their hands.
While Donald has officially announced that he will be running for President of the United States in 2024, reports have previously stated that Melania isn’t in any way close to wanting a return to the White House. Latest rumors, however, suggest that things may well have changed.
Melania and Donald have had their fair share of fights over the years. Some even speculated that the pair were on their way to splitting up – mainly because of the indictment and sexual abuse lawsuit. Yet according to Vanity Fair sources, the reality is far from that.
Donald Trump & Melania Trump – how is their relationship?
Another court decision was made in early May, when a federal jury found Donald Trump guilty of sexually abusing E. Jean Carroll in a luxury department store dressing room in 1996.
She was awarded $5 million for battery and defamation; however, the jury did not find that Carroll had proved Trump raped her. The former president was not in attendance when the jury announced their decision.
Donald and Melania have had their fair share of fights over the years. Even when the couple were in the White House, they were dogged by reports of bickering and arguments. One of the most notable incidents was the infamous jacket incident, which saw Melania, on her way to a migrant housing facility in Texas, wearing a jacket with the text “‘I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?’
When Melania returned from Texas, her husband was said to be furious. Donald is said to have summoned his wife to the Oval Office and yelled at her over wearing the tasteless jacket.
“He yelled and asked “what the [expletive]” they thought they were doing,” former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who also worked in the First Lady’s Office, wrote in her memoir I’ll Take Your Questions Now.

“It’s obvious I didn’t wear the jacket for the children,” Melania later told CNN. “I wore the jacket to go on the plane and off the plane. And it was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me.”
“More bonded than ever”
Rumors about Donald and Melania not being in a good place weren’t exactly put to bed when the latter was notably absent from Trump’s post-arraignment speech in April. Moreover, Donald didn’t move to thank Melania in the speech, instead praising his children.
In recent days, though, it would appear as if things are getting better. According to an anonymous source speaking to Page Six, as quoted by Variety, Melania and Donald “seems more bonded than ever.”
We will see what happens in the coming months as Donald Trump heads out on his campaign trail in pursuit of becoming the Republican presidential candidate for 2024. Whether or not Melania will join him remains to be seen. At any rate, it seems like things are improving – and maybe Melania will be the First Lady again.
