President Trump has answered some long-anticipated questions about his wife Melania.
In an interview with NBC News’s Kristen Welker, Trump stated that Melania will soon hit the campaign trail with him.
Trump told the NBC reporter “She’s a private person, a great person, a very confident person and she loves our country very much. She’ll be at the appropriate time she’ll be out there.”
In a separate interview with Megyn Kelly, Trump shared the status of his son Barron and stated he was doing very well and was currently focused on school.

Here’s what the Washington Examiner reported:
Former President Donald Trump says that his wife, former first lady Melania Trump, will be campaigning for his 2024 presidential run “when it’s appropriate.”
Trump, speaking in an interview with NBC News’s Kristen Welker, said that his wife will hit the campaign trail “pretty soon” after not making appearances at his campaign events since he announced his 2024 candidacy in November 2022.
“When it’s appropriate, but pretty soon,” Trump said during a clip from the interview, which aired on NBC’s Today on Friday.
“She’s a private person, a great person, very confident person and she loves our country very much. She’ll be at the appropriate time she’ll be out there. Honestly, I like to keep her away from it — it’s so nasty and so mean,” he continued
The former president said that Melania Trump has been with his youngest son, Baron, in the meantime.
Unlike in previous presidential campaigns, Trump’s family has not been as present on the campaign trail at events and rallies. Trump’s sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have promoted their father’s 2024 presidential campaign, but Ivanka Trump decided against campaigning for her father this time around.
“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. While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena,” Ivanka Trump said shortly after her father announced his 2024 presidential bid.

Per NBC News:
President Trump said Thursday that former First Lady Melania Trump may be back on the campaign trail with him “pretty soon.”
“We’ll see her on the trail soon?” “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker asked the former president.
“Yes. Soon? Yeah, pretty soon. When it’s appropriate, but pretty soon,” he said. “She’s a private person, a great person, a very confident person and she loves our country very much.”
“And honestly, I like to keep her away from it. It’s so nasty and so mean,” he added.
The interview, Welker’s first as moderator of “Meet the Press,” will air Sunday on NBC affiliates across the country. NBC News has also extended an invitation to President Joe Biden to sit down with Welker for an interview.
