Secretly Relieved

Melania Trump has been quiet over the past week as her adopted country decided if her family would stay in the White House for another four years.

Has she evaded the limelight because of the outgoing US President’s tantrums over the election result that saw Joe Biden become president-elect, or is she calmly planning her next move, which could be significantly different to Donald Trump’s?

Nobody could blame Melania Trump for being relieved to say goodbye to her essentially undefined, unpaid, a high-pressure position as First Lady and Kate Anderson Brower, a journalist and author of First Women, a book about the partners of presidents said that she believed Melania would probably be secretly relieved because this isn’t what she signed up for.

So what will Melania Trump’s next move be? Will she follow other first ladies and go on to write a tell-all book, take up worthy projects, help her husband navigate his new endeavours, which experts say is the least likely, or just concentrate on her position as a loving mum and live life as a lady of leisure?

She has numerous possibilities, especially where the family might relocate to and whether she will choose to live with son Barron separately to her husband.

Speculation surrounds whether Melania and Barron will go back to New York so he can return to his former private school in Manhattan, or stay in Washington while he completes high school in Maryland, not far from the White House.

The Obamas stayed in Washington so their two daughters could finish up at their private school, but after January 21, Melania could return to the Trump Tower penthouse in New York City, the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, or head to the Seven Springs estate in Westchester and the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster.

Experts say it could be Florida because she voted in person at Palm Beach County, registered as the Trump’s official home.

Historian Katherine Jellison of Ohio University told USA Today she assumed Melania Trump would go back to Florida, or perhaps she will be able to persuade her husband to return to New York as their official home and resume the kind of life she led before the White House.

Anita McBride, who runs the Legacies of America’s First Ladies Initiative at American University and was former first lady Laura Bush’s chief of staff, said she felt Melania would concentrate on her family and her son, helping him to manage the transition.

Mind you, nobody actually cared about her when she was the First Lady and they probably won’t care about her after.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
