According to a report by Politico on Wednesday, First Lady, Melania Trump, is planning on moving into the White House as soon as next week.
Melania had stayed in New York so that Barron, their son, could finish out his school year on the Upper West Side at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School.
This move went far to show Melania’s devotion to her family as this made her the only first lady in recent memory to make such a sacrifice regarding the delay in her move to the White House.
President Donald Trump is expecting to be joined by his wife in Washington on June 14th. From that date forward, the first lady will be leaving her home in New York City’s Trump Tower.
This date has an extra special significance, as it is President Trump’s birthday.
White House aides are hoping that Melania’s presence at the White House will be more beneficial to President Trump and his agenda, saying that her “strong influence and personality… comforts him.”
The first lady will be leaving her current residence in New York City’s Trump Tower and join President Donald Trump in Washington on June 14, according to the report, which cited people familiar with her plans. The date coincides with Trump’s 71st birthday. Melania Trump stayed in New York with the couple’s son Barron after the election in order for Barron to finish the school year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In doing so, Melania Trump became the only first lady in recent memory to delay a move to the White House. The report also said that Melania Trump’s parents, Victor and Amalija Knavs, will begin making more appearances at the White House, although they will not move to Washington full time. The two have been helping take care of their grandson in Trump Tower. Melania Trump has largely shied away from the public role typical of most first ladies, but White House aides hope she can rein in the president behind the scenes.
