On June 14, former President Donald Trump marked his 77th birthday in the familiar setting of his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. As expected, he spent the day enjoying his favorite pastime. Later in the evening, he gathered with close friends and family for a birthday dinner, although it remains unclear whether Melania Trump, his wife, was present at the celebration.
Earlier in the day, Melania and her son, Barron Trump, were spotted leaving Trump Tower in New York City. The mother-son duo appeared dressed elegantly for the early summer weather, fueling speculation about their destination. Melania donned a crisp white dress, while Barron sported a blue coat and white button-down shirt. Luggage from luxury brand Louis Vuitton was seen being loaded into several vehicles by bellmen, according to the Daily Mail.
While some speculated that they might have made a brief visit to Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf course, others believed that an overseas trip was more likely. Reports suggest that Melania and Barron have been planning a grand European tour during the summer months. Melania has always placed her role as a mother to Barron above her husband’s political ambitions. It would not be surprising to see her take an extended vacation, seeking respite from the spotlight and the campaign trail.
Donald Trump’s legal troubles have continued to make headlines, and Melania has consistently been a reluctant participant in his return to the White House. People close to the situation reveal that Barron has always been Melania’s top priority. “Of course, she is worried and concerned about the legal issues, but she has not done anything more to protect Barron now than she ever did. She has always put him first. She is a good mother,” an insider shared with People magazine.
With Barron entering his senior year of high school in the fall, it is reasonable to assume that Melania is focusing on her role as a mother and cherishing quality time with her son while she can. Throughout their lives, Melania and the former president have pursued independent paths, making a possible vacation with Barron a natural course of action.
