In 2017, Melania Trump made history as the first presidential wife to be born outside of the United States since Louisa Adams in 1825.

“Melania – great first lady, so popular, the people love her,” Donald Trump said at a New Year’s Eve celebration.

He added, “She’s now in a hospital with her mother. Her mother, Amalija, is very ill, but hopefully she’ll be recovering.”
“But she’s been very ill. So, I just want to say ‘hello’ to the first lady – we just spoke, down in Miami, great hospital – and hopefully they’ll be ok.
“But it’s a tough one, it’s a very tough one. She knows probably about 95% of the people in this room. We just want to wish Amalija that she gets better as quickly as possible.”

Donald Trump expressed his condolences on his Truth Social media platform.

He described it as a “very sad night” for the Trump family.
