Former president Donald Trump, who was impeached twice and tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election, launched his campaign to try to return to the White House for a second time and his wife, Melania Trump, is celebrating the move.
During an interview with far-right publication Breitbart, the former first lady cheered her husband’s bid to run for the president’s office in 2024, and predicted that his return to the White House will bring “success and prosperity” to the country.
“I support my husband’s decision to run for president of this wonderful nation,” Ms. Trump told Breitbart.
“His achievements during his administration had a great effect on all of us, and he can lead us toward success and prosperity again,” she added.
“I await the day when my husband returns to lead an America that is characterized by peace, love, and security,” she said.
While most of the Trump family was present for the 45th president’s campaign launch, his daughter and former adviser Ivanka Trump skipped the event.
Asked by Fox News about her decision to not attend the event, Ivanka Trump said: “I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics.”
