Trump Confirms Behind Melania’s No-Show In Christmas Photo

The UNEXPECTED Truth Behind Melania Trump’s Absence
After lots of speculation around why former First Lady Melania Trump was not seen in the Trump family Christmas photo, former President Donald Trump has revealed the true reason behind her absence.

During the GOP presidential candidate’s New Year’s Eve celebration at Mar-a-Lago, he addressed party-goers and confirmed that Melania has been with her mother, Amalija Knavs, who has been “very ill.”

“Her mother Amalija is very ill. Hopefully she’ll be recovering, but she’s been very ill, so … we just spoke, she’s down in Miami, a great hospital. Hopefully, that’ll be okay, but it’s a tough one, a very tough one,” Trump stated.

“She sends her love to everybody. She knows probably about 95 percent of the people in this room. We just want to wish Amalija that she gets better as quickly as possible,” he added.

Sources have it that Melania has been taking care of her mother before Christmas came in and that’s why she could not be in the family photo. According to Fox News, an insider stated that she has always maintained a close bond with her family.

“It should be no surprise that she spent this Christmas with her ailing mother,” the source stated.

The family photo came out on Dec. 26 when Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., shared it on her Instagram story. It did not take long for Melania’s presence to be noticed.

Critics and mainstream media outlets came out with various speculations as to why she was absent from the photo. Some even went as far as suggest that she could no longer stand Trump.

According to another speculation, Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, who was in the photo with her husband Jared Kushner and their kids, was “standing in” as Melania.

“Where is Melania,” the user asked on X.

While the answer to that is now clear, the exact nature of Knavs’ illness is unknown, as Trump did not say anything about the cause of her illness.
