Melania Trump ‘unhappy’ about Jill Biden’s ‘instant popularity’ reports claim

Melania Trump is said to be unhappy about the instant popularity enjoyed by new First Lady Jill Biden, a report has claimed.

She has expressed dismay at the favourable treatment given to Mrs Biden, including multiple interviews with popular magazines, CNN has said.

Reporter Kate Bennett said: "The attention Biden has been getting has not gone unnoticed by Trump, say those who know her.

"Though she is lamenting the media focus on her successor, Trump turned down several similar offers from national publications throughout her time as the First Lady, according to two people who worked closely with her.

"When presented with offers and asks for participation, it was Trump who would not want to do them. In four years, she never did an interview with a national publication."

While former President Donald Trump has been watching his second impeachment trial unfold, Mrs Trump has been spending most of her time since the family left the White House relaxing at the spa at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

It is claimed that the former First Lady has all but left Washington behind, unlike her husband. Her daily schedule is said to have nothing to do with politics, Congress or the impeachment trial.

She has reportedly been "bitter and chilly" at times towards her husband, upset at the impact on her image of his behaviour since the election.

One source told CNN: "She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again) and has dinner with Donald on the patio. Rinse and repeat. Every day.

"It's pretty much the same as it was before (she was First Lady) or even when she would come down during vacations."

Joe Biden was inaugurated as the USA's 46th President and his wife has proved a huge hit as his right-hand woman.

When the family left Washington, Mrs Trump had the worst favourability ratings of any modern First Lady upon departure from the White House, according to a poll conducted by market research firm SSRS for CNN.

After the storming of the Capitol in January, which led to Mr Trump's second impeachment, his wife did not make a statement denouncing it for five days.

One former White House official said: "Once (the insurrection) happened, she knew there was nothing to gain for her by speaking out or doing something – so she didn't do anything."
