WATCH: CNN Reporter Kate Bennett Says Melania Has No Interest in Being First Lady Again
It never seemed like Melania Trump was all that interested in being First Lady. Her decisions were largely mocked, whether it was destroying the rose garden or starting an anti-bullying charity.
Now that she is out of the White House, the former First Lady might not want to go back. According to Kate Bennett, Melania Trump has no interest in being the First Lady again.
The CNN Reporter said on Sunday, “Not unlike 2016, Melania Trump has no intention really of joining the campaign or being a prolific presence. I’ve spoken to people who said that she’s not really even interested in being in the White House again, going through being first lady again.”
Bennett continued, “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. She’s retreated now back to Mar-a-Lago, being a mom, et cetera, and she really has no interest in helping her husband with his perceived, as we all know, his political ambitions.”

The reporter closed her remarks:
“People are under the misconception that this is a couple that don’t spend time together, they don’t talk — it’s really not true. They have very independent lives but they do consult each other. In 2016 when she was asked to do events, asked to go on campaign events and rallies, the answer was ‘no’ so often that people on Trump’s campaign just stopped asking her because it was always going to be a no — and we’ll see that again this time around.”
