Melania Trump has declared that she is “fully behind” her husband’s 2024 presidential bid, effectively putting an end to yet another media-fabricated narrative that the former first lady may not be on board.
Mrs. Trump spoke with Fox News Digital and said she is eager to work alongside former President Donald Trump “restoring hope for the future and leading America with love and strength.”
“My husband achieved tremendous success in his first administration, and he can lead us toward greatness and prosperity once again,” Melania Trump said, before adding, “He has my support, and we look forward to restoring hope for the future and leading America with love and strength.”
The well-being and development of children will continue to be her priority, Mrs. Trump said, if she has “the privilege” to serve as first lady again in 2024. She said she’ll work to ensure children the “support and resources they need to reach their full potential.”
“My focus would continue to be creating a safe and nurturing space for children to learn, grow, and thrive,” she said. “If additional problems arise, I will take the time to study them and understand their root causes.”
On that note, Melania shared on Twitter images from a private luncheon she hosted at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday in support of the foster care community, while marking the fifth anniversary of the “Be Best” initiative she established as first lady, which focused on the well-being of America’s children.
I enjoyed the open and sincere discussion I had this past weekend, over lunch, with a group of teens from the foster care community. We covered a wide range of topics, including their personal experiences, struggles, and hopes for the future. I am confident that they will… pic.twitter.com/pqY8F2RZzm

“Since leaving Washington D.C., my commitment to the foster community has grown stronger,” Mrs. Trump told Fox News.
“At the present time, there are more than 400,000 children in the foster care system, and there is less than a 3% chance of former foster children completing their college education. In fact, many end up on the street, homeless,” she said. “My objective is to reduce the gap and increase access to higher education for those who leave the foster care system.”
Trump is currently leading the Republican field for the GOP presidential nomination and barring some catastrophic development, will likely be the party’s nominee. Recent polling also had him edging out President Biden, so a second stint as first lady could very well be in the cards for Melania Trump.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:

@JasonMillerinDC we would be honored to have @MELANIATRUMP as our First Lady! I am certain King Charles would not have seated her by the toilet for the coronation!
