You don’t need to be a political expert to deduce that the current president and first lady don’t seem like they’re all that into each other.

But a recent report in the Washington Post showed that Melania and Donald Trump really don’t spend all that much time together and—OK, yes, most people probably saw that coming.
One longtime friend of the president told the Post the two “spend very little to no time together,” and according to people familiar with their schedules, they often spend their free time apart. On holidays and weekends, the president is at Mar-a-Lago with politicians, business executives, and media personalities, but Melania is often missing from the scene.
Several aides also reported that the two don’t usually eat together back at the White House, and one source said she “seldom sets foot in the West Wing,” preferring to stick to the East Wing.
However, Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s spokeswoman, said the family is together most evenings and Melania is “focused on being a mom. She’s focused on being a wife, and she’s focused on her role as first lady.” Another source reported that Donald has called Melania while he’s traveling, and he relies on her and listens to her.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a longtime friend of Melania’s, told the Post that Melania’s personal life—and relationship with her husband—is her own business. “She is a dignified, private person,” she said. “They are not that couple that holds hands just because; she is old-world European and it’s not who she is.”
