Donald Trump officially announced what we all knew was coming when he held a massive event at his Mar-a-Lago resort turned post-White House home and formally threw his hat into the 2024 presidential ring.
The move wasn’t exactly well received among his own party, as multiple senior Republicans reportedly begged Trump not to go through with the announcement, especially on the heels of such a humiliating midterm election for the GOP, and then very publicly turned their backs on him when he went through with it anyway.
Suffice it to say, the support for Trump right now has pretty much boiled down to Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Jim Jordan. Everyone else has either made it publicly well known that they disprove of Trump’s run and hope for someone “better” as the Republican nominee, or they’ve been spineless chickens and just hide in the shadows, offering milquetoast non-answers when approached on the subject.
But, apparently, there’s one person still left in Donald’s corner.
Or, perhaps, she’s just earning her allowance.

Former First Lady and third and current Trump wife, Melania Trump, released her first official statement on the matter of her husband’s 2024 campaign launch to Breitbart News, and frankly, it reeked of… Well… Melania Trump.
You’ll see what I mean.
Melania’s statement to the publication reads:
I support my husband’s decision to run for president of this wonderful Nation. His achievements during his administration had a great effect on all of us, and he can lead us toward success and prosperity again.
I await the day when my husband returns to lead an America that is characterized by peace, love, and security.”
Americans were… Well… See for yourself:
Is she getting remarried?

I wonder how much it cost Trump to have her make this statement?
