  • Is Melania Trump on the verge of divorcing The Donald?
  • Is there a secret contract keeping them together?
  • How much more is the First Lady willing to put up with?

Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, a gossipy tell-all by former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, claims that Melania Trump is planning her escape, but fears that her citizenship will be revoked if she divorces Trump during his presidency.

Instead, Melania is “counting down the minutes” until Trump leaves the Oval Office before filing for divorce. If true, that would leave Trump 0-for-3 in the marriage game.

“Mrs. Trump rarely, if ever, interacted with Omarosa. It’s disappointing to her that she is lashing out and retaliating in such a self-serving way, especially after all the opportunities given to her by the President.” – Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s spokeswoman

Keep in mind that this is all coming from Omarosa, who is unreliable even by Trump standards. With all the chaos surrounding the White House and all the other far more credible books being released, the former Apprentice contestant is competing for attention in a crowded field.

The question of divorce looms over the President and First Lady, what with the scandals involving Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal, the Access Hollywood tape, and the 16 women who have accused the President of sexual misconduct.

There’s no doubt that Donald Trump is a vindictive man, but would he really go as far as revoking Melania’s citizenship? After all, it was Donald Trump who arranged for her to enter on an Einstein (EB-1) visa, which is reserved for individuals with “extraordinary ability.” And would he even be able to “deport” Melania if he wanted to?

I don’t have the answer to those questions and neither does Omarosa. What we do know is that Melania has not shied away from taking jabs at her husband. She sided with LeBron James when the NBA superstar called her husband a “bum.” She’s swatted his hand away in public on multiple occasions. And her daily routine is “remarkably separate” to her husband’s.

So do we really believe that she’s afraid to divorce Trump while he’s president? Take a hint from her jacket: I don’t really care. Do U?

Melania Divorces Trump AFTER His Presidency MyBookie Odds
Yes -140
No +100

Almost at evens. If Melania waits until Trump leaves office, she’ll have had the longest marriage with Trump out of his three wives. Of course, that’s assuming Trump doesn’t leave the White House prematurely.

The optics are bad and Trump has a long history of infidelity, but let’s be honest, we don’t know anything about the internals of their marriage or what kind of arrangement they have going. There’s not much value in either Yes (-140) or No (+100).
