Per her request, and at the expense of taxpayers, Melania Trump lives in New York with her son, Barron. By design, Melania remains married to a person who has openly treated her in ways that clearly make her uncomfortable.
By choice, Donald Trump is the so-called commander-in-chief of the United States. Because he publicly makes a fool of himself and gives the media, social media users, world leaders, and entertainers plenty of material with which to create fodder, Donald Trump’s ignorant antics constantly remain on display for all to see.
All of the above is true because of choices made by Donald Trump and his family. He, much to the pleasure of many Americans, could’ve (and probably should have) chosen to remain a shady real estate billionaire who makes his money off the backs of everyday people. Instead, he has decided to be a bully, abuse his authority, and instigate military conflict with several major world powers, and do so under the auspices of his role as commander-in-chief.
Now Trump is complaining about the job being harder than he expected, how much of a strain the position has been on his family, and how badly he feels that Melania is being treated. Choosing to have power, abusing it, and complaining about it all at the same time. Donald Trump is the epitome of white privilege.
Specifically, about the difficulty his family has had to endure, Trump asserts:
‘There is no question, it is a big burden on the family.’
On how poorly Melania is being picked on, Trump claims:
‘She’s been terribly abused by the press, really unfairly. She’s a high-quality person. She’s been amazing for the country.’
Oddly, there are no reports about the “amazing” things Melania has done for America. Moreover, social media users don’t have much sympathy for the Trump family as reflected in the tweets below:
Jane Sanders is a fraud.
Melania Trump is an overt racist and kleptocracy bride.

@businessinsider Melania Trump is being paid a stunning amount for living in New York instead of the White House, so go sit by your bowl and be quiet.

Donald Trump did confirm that Melania and Barron will definitely be moving to D.C. at the end of the school year. However, at this juncture, many people may not care. The Trump family, minus innocent Barron and absent Tiffany, have done their damage.
