HollywoodLife reports that the First Lady tried her best to convince Donald Trump to share a longer statement regarding former Senator John McCain’s passing, but it was all in vain. As you may be aware, both the current president and his wife Melania Trump took to Twitter to react to the politician’s death.
However, a source tells the news outlet that Melania really wanted to do more than just that for the pained family McCain left behind.
‘Melania arranged for some beautiful white lilies and roses to be sent to Cindy McCain as soon as she learned the sad news of John’s death, along with a card expressing her condolences,’ the insider dished.
In addition, apparently ‘Melania urged Donald to work with a speech writer to compose a touching tribute to John, but he refused, claiming it would come across as phony given their highly contentious relationship prior to his passing.’
But Trump ended up posting a short message on social media and nothing more, ‘purely so he couldn’t be accused of ignoring John’s death completely.’
‘My deepest sympathies and respects go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!’ Donald posted.
Meanwhile, Melania tweeted: ‘Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to the McCain Family. Thank you, Senator McCain, for your service to the nation.’
Melania has been going through a lot lately because of the newly resurfaced allegations that the Donald has a love child with a housekeeper.
Another source previously told HollywoodLife that ‘It seems that every day, there’s a sordid new revelation or allegation involving Donald, and it doesn’t look likely to stop anytime soon. Of course, Donald does what he’s always done. He denies everything, but Melania is not stupid, and she has a good grasp of what is reality and what is actual fake news.’
Still, she is reportedly determined to stay with him at least until their son Barron becomes an adult.
