vThe Trump family recently shared their Christmas photo, sparking speculation about Melania’s absence from the picture.
Numerous wild theories circulated about why Melania was missing, with some explanations being downright bizarre. However, the truth is that Melania had to skip the photo-op due to a family emergency. Specifically, her mother is facing a serious illness. Instead of joining the festivities where the Trump family gathered for the photo, Melania chose to stay behind and attend to her mother’s needs.

“Melania has always been very devoted to her entire family,” the source told Fox News. “It should be no surprise that she spent this Christmas with her ailing mother.”
Melania’s absence from the Christmas card was first noticed when Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle, shared the image on her Instagram story.
The picture, taken at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, features Don Jr., Donald Sr., Kimberly, Barron Trump, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Tiffany Trump, and Michael Boulos.
While Melania’s absence from the Christmas card may have raised eyebrows, it is not entirely unexpected.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Melania would be increasing her public appearances to support her husband’s bid for re-election in 2024.
Insiders said that Donald is so confident in his chances of becoming president again that he has reached an agreement with Melania for her to take on more top-tier diplomatic appearances in the coming years.
This is likely to burst many liberals’ bubbles. Undoubtedly, some were probably hoping Melania’s absence was because she was serving Donald with divorce papers. However, that couldn’t have been further from the truth.
