We can’t really say we’re surprised…
Since becoming President, the world has been analysing Donald Trump’s every move, searching for any clues about his personal life and what on earth is going on behind the White House walls.
One of the most puzzling things about the President is his unconventional relationship with his wife of 12 years, Melania Trump, who looked visibly unhappy at her husband’s inauguration and has attended surprisingly few engagements since his election.
Despite usually focusing on Donald Trump quotes, the whole world has instead been examining the couple’s body language over the past few months, with Trump appearing to avoid holding hands in public with the former Slovenian model, something that body language expert Patti Wood has described as very telling of their relationship. According to her, it’s all down to Trump wanting to be seen as an alpha male and leader, rather than as part of a unit.
The same reasoning could explain the new updates emerging on the First Couple’s relationship, with Donald Trump and Melania reportedly sleeping in separate beds.
Of course the couple are currently living miles from each other, with Melania opting against moving to Washington with her husband, instead choosing to stay in New York with her son Barron so that he can finish his school year there – a controversial decision that isn’t customary for the First Family and has been frowned upon by traditionalists.
It has been suggested, however, that even when the couple ultimately live in the same place – presumably the White House, they will share a bedroom but sleep in separate beds.
A source told Us Weekly that ‘it’s very “royal” of them’, alleging that the couple’s relationship has deteriorated since Trump became President, going on to explain that Melania feels ‘trapped’ in her new role.
‘She is not interested in Donald, the presidency or anything involving him’, another source reportedly told the magazine.
