Following the Covid-19 diagnosis of the President, First Lady, and many others in the White House, President Donald Trump has returned to the campaign trail. His wife, Melania Trump, however, has since cancelled her most recent campaign appearance due to her bout with Covid-19.
This would have been the First Lady’s first campaign appearance in months; her last was at the Republican National Convention at the White House in August. However, she is still recovering from Covid-19. Her chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, cited the fact that Melania Trump continues to have a lingering cough and is not fully recovered yet.
While other members of the Trump family continue to campaign throughout the United States, Melania Trump is not expected to appear at campaign events anytime soon. In the 2016 election, the First Lady was not commonly seen at campaign events, giving only a few solo speeches throughout President Trump’s campaign.
As in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, Melania Trump has been, and is expected to be, present at presidential debates. The final debate takes place in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday, October 22.
