First lady Melania Trump may not move to the White House at any point, Us Weekly reported Wednesday.
“They will reevaluate toward the end of the school year if they will keep this arrangement or if Melania and Barron will move to Washington,” a family insider told the publication.
“They could go either way right now. They will ultimately do what’s best for Barron.”
In November, reports surfaced that the first lady and her son, Barron, 10, would not move to the White House immediately.
Instead, the two planned to stay in New York City so Barron could finish out the school year.
The source told Us Weekly that although Melania Trump is not in the White House, she has been “actively building her team” since her husband assumed office, including “hiring a chief of staff, a senior adviser and a social secretary, among other key positions.”
“While she is a mom first, she is very much embracing the role and responsibilities of first lady,” the source said.
When the president was asked last month about whether he was lonely not having his wife in the White House, he said: “No, because I end up working longer. And that’s OK.”
