How Much Time Does Donald Trump Spend with Melania Trump?

Many have been curious about Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage ever since they stepped into the spotlight. Onlookers wonder about Barron Trump, what designers the couple wears, and how much time they spend together. Here’s what we know about how Donald and Melania Trump balance the White House and marriage.

How the Trumps spend their holidays

Donald and Melania Trump typically spend some time together during the holidays. The Trump family usually spends a few days together at their Florida club, Mar-a-Lago (also known as their “Winter White House”). However, Donald had to adjust his vacation plans last Christmas during the partial government shutdown. He spent some of his time at the White House and then went on a trip with Melania to Iraq to visit U.S. troops stationed abroad.

One place Melania and Donald don’t spend time together is the bathroom. Many couples complain about having to fight for equal bathroom time, but that’s not the case with the Trumps. Donald and Melania reportedly don’t share a bathroom. This is probably for the best because Donald once said he doesn’t want to be around when his partner is passing gas or using the toilet. In an interview with Howard Stern, he said he has never heard or witnessed Melania do either of those things.

Do Melania and Donald Trump have separate bedrooms?

Melania and Donald reportedly do not share a bedroom. A good night’s sleep could be the secret to their lasting marriage. In a 2016 interview with Fox News, Melania said that although she and Donald do have arguments, they never fight. “We don’t have fights. We disagree, but that’s OK. That’s very good in the relationship,” Melania told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.

Some reports say Donald and Melania don’t spend much time together

A friend of Donald Trump told The Washington Post the couple spends “little to no time together.” The source also said the first lady rarely goes to the West Wing. According to the publication, Melania spends a lot of her time focusing on Barron while Donald takes care of his job. However, Melania has also taken on some of her own White House projects recently, spearheading initiatives to promote issues affecting young people. “Her focus all along has been children, and this launch is meant to formalize what her role will be for the next three to seven years,” Melania’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told The Washington Post.

Some have criticized Donald and Melania because of what appears to be a lack of affection. However, one of Melania’s close friends told The Washington Post that’s just the way Melania is. According to the source, she’s not a fan of public displays of affection. “She is a dignified, private person, and she’ll deal with her personal life in private and it’s no one’s business,” said Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a friend of Melania’s. “They are not that couple that holds hands just because; she is old-world European and it’s not who she is.”
