In a candid interview with Fox News over the weekend, former President Donald Trump shared insights into the personal toll his trial and criminal conviction have taken on his family, especially on his wife, Melania Trump. Trump, facing significant legal challenges, expressed concern for Melania, stating, “She’s fine, but I think it’s very hard for her. I mean, she’s fine. But it’s, you know, she has to read all this c—. It’s tougher, I think it’s probably in many ways, it’s tougher on my family than it is on me.”

Melania Trump, notably absent from the trial proceedings, has remained largely out of the public eye during this tumultuous period. The couple, who married in 2005 and have one son together, Barron, born a year after their wedding, has faced intensified scrutiny amid Trump’s legal battles.

As reported by OK! Magazine, Trump also discussed the broader implications of his conviction on all 34 charges of fabricating company records, describing it as a dangerous precedent of political weaponization. “It’s weaponization, and it’s a very dangerous thing. We’ve never had that in this country. People get it. It’s a scam. And the Republican Party… they’ve stuck together in this. They see it’s a weaponization of the Justice Department of the FBI and that’s all coming out of Washington,” Trump declared.

With his sentencing scheduled for July 11, just days before the Republican Party selects its presidential candidate to challenge Joe Biden, Trump hinted at the potential upheaval his imprisonment could cause. “I don’t know that the public would stand it… I’m not sure the public would stand for it. I think it would be tough for the public to take. You know, at a certain point, there’s a breaking point,” he speculated.

Further complicating matters, an insider revealed to People magazine that Melania has been deeply troubled by the trial’s outcome, adding “another layer of poison” to their relationship. The source described her perspective, noting, “This [New York jury’s] decision is another layer of poison for her… Melania believes this is a political assassination, but she knows exactly who she married and for this reason, has chosen to stay away from media attention to protect herself and her son Barron.”

Despite the strain, Trump remains a central figure in American politics, with the possibility of facing only a fine or probation due to his status as a first-time offender, despite facing up to four years in prison. As the political and personal drama unfolds, the Trump family continues to navigate the consequences of a highly publicized legal battle.
