 Melania and Ivanka Trump’s Absence Noted Amid Family Presence at Trump’s Trial, Sparking Online Debate


As the jury deliberation nears in Donald Trump’s criminal hush money trial, the former president witnessed the largest family gathering in support of him at the Manhattan courthouse. However, the notable absences of his wife, Melania Trump, and eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, did not go unnoticed, according to CNN.

While Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Tiffany Trump, along with her husband Michael Boulos, showed their support in court, the lack of presence from Melania and Ivanka has fueled speculation and online debates. Observers have pointed out Melania’s absence particularly, given the trial’s focus on alleged infidelities by Trump, which occurred shortly after the birth of their son Barron. “Melania hates Donald’s guts. THAT’S why she didn’t show up to support him even a single day of his criminal trial,” one social media user speculated.

Another user highlighted the political implications of the family’s partial attendance: “DonJr and Eric haven’t been there most of the trial. Ivanka and Jared have never shown up. Melania has never shown up. This says something. If a Democrat were on trial and their family didn’t show up? Big headlines.”

The discussion extends to the dynamics within the Trump family, as Melania has rarely appeared publicly with Trump since his latest presidential campaign began. This distance might suggest her discomfort with the allegations and the public scrutiny they bring. Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have taken a clear step back from politics, with Ivanka stating, “I love my father very much,” but choosing to focus on her family and “the private life we are creating”as per Forbes reported.

This selective family support at such a critical juncture in Trump’s legal and political career has not only drawn media attention but also sparked a broader discussion about personal and political loyalty within the Trump family. As the trial continues and the former president faces significant legal challenges, the family dynamics and public responses are likely to remain a point of keen interest and speculation.
