First Lady Melania Trump breaks a tradition by refusing to participate in the midterm elections campaign with her husband Donald.


Why Melania doesn’t participate in the elections campaign

It’s a long-lasting tradition for the First Ladies to stand by the Presidents’ side amid numerous campaign events.  In such way, they can support their husbands and create a positive image of the first family.

However, Melania Trump decided to break the tradition as she refused to participate in the campaign ahead of the November midterm elections.

According to Mrs. Trump’s communication director, Stephanie Grisham, First Lady has a very busy schedule to add numerous campaign events into it.

Mrs. Grisham said in a statement:

Due to her schedule as a mother and First Lady, especially with the holidays coming up, there are no plans for her to campaign at this time.


Unlike Melania Trump, the former First Lady Michelle Obama was an active supporter and participant of her husband Barack amid his elections campaign.
