27 May MELANIA TRUMP. A First Lady Emerges.
Melania (Mrs. Donald) Trump has been an enigma, a question mark, to the curious, often judgemental, Washington press corps and to its governmental establishment ever since her husband was elected president in November 2016. Mrs. Trump elected to remain in New York City for most of the time during the ensuing six months, in order to monitor their son Barron while he completed his school year.
Was Melania destined to become an enigmatic, retiring, obscure, unimportant First Lady? Was her position in the White House to be supplanted by her step-daughter Ivanka Trump Kushner? Donald’s daughter is and has been more assertive, more political, and more comfortable with the Washington establishment.
