- Melania Trump is telling friends she’s not interested in being first lady again, according to CNN.
- Donald Trump continues to tease a potential 2024 run, telling supporters they will be “very happy.”
- But CNN said Melania doesn’t plan to help with the campaign.
Former First Lady Melania Trump is not interested in taking back the title, sources told CNN, despite her husband dangling the possibility of another Trump campaign over his supporters.
“Not unlike 2016, Melania Trump has no intention really of joining the campaign,” CNN’s Kate Bennett said on Sunday. “I’ve spoken to people who said that she’s not even really interested in being in the White House again, going through being first lady again.”
Several of Melania Trump’s friends told the outlet she has no interest in returning the White House, let alone helping if her husband decides to run.
Former President Donald Trump has not yet said if he plans to run in 2024, though he has teased the possibility multiple times, saying his supporters will be “very happy“with his decision.
Previous reports have said Melania Trump was “happy and relaxed” since exiting the White House earlier this year. She’s largely remained out of the public eye, unlike some of her predecessors, and has made few public appearances.
“She’s retreated now back to Mar-a-Lago, being a mom,” Bennett said. “We know she’s an extremely private person and that being in the public eye wasn’t necessarily something she wanted to do in the first place.”
Donald Trump, on the other hand, has continued to fundraise and hold rallies despite not yet announcing a 2024 bid.
