(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Former First Lady Melania Trump spent this Christmas with her mother, who is currently unwell, as per information obtained by Fox News Digital. This meant she was unable to join the Trump family’s Christmas festivities at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.

A source close to Melania conveyed to Fox News Digital her deep commitment to her family, highlighting that her decision to be with her mother during this time is consistent with her values. Former President Donald Trump and Melania’s son, Barron, participated in the Christmas dinner at Mar-a-Lago with other members of the Trump family.

In a previous discussion with Fox News Digital earlier this year, Melania expressed her full support for her husband’s presidential campaign. She shared her enthusiasm about the prospect of returning to the White House for a second term, focusing on fostering hope and leading America with compassion and strength. Melania viewed the opportunity to serve again as First Lady as a privilege and spoke of continuing her commitment to children’s well-being and development.

Melania, during her tenure as First Lady, was known for her “Be Best” initiative, which included hosting virtual roundtables on foster care and efforts to strengthen the child welfare system. She played a role in legislative efforts that resulted in the allocation of funds for grants to support education and training for youth in or previously in foster care. This legislation was signed by then-President Trump in December 2020.

After leaving the White House, Melania ventured into the creation of special edition Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), with a portion of the proceeds supporting her “Fostering the Future” initiative, aimed at providing educational opportunities and scholarships for foster care children.

Additionally, earlier this month, Melania addressed new American citizens at a naturalization ceremony in the National Archives Rotunda. She spoke about the responsibilities of citizenship and the importance of safeguarding freedom. The ceremony was a significant event, with 25 individuals from 25 different countries becoming U.S. citizens in a setting surrounded by foundational American documents.
