She was present when her husband announced that he would run for president of the United States in the 2024 election, but Melania Trump's face and body language emitted discord with the evident gaiety at the event at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, on November 15, 2022.

Days before the announcement, there were reports that Donald John Trump, who will be 78 if he is elected in November 2024, had begged his elder daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner to be present at his announcement.

Ivanka was absent as was her brother Donald Jr, but they were represented by their respective partners -- Kushner and Donald Jr's girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Also missing was Trump's younger daughter Tiffany, whose absence could be excused -- she got married last Saturday, November 12, to Michael Boulos at Mar-a-Lago.

The most interesting person present was Barron, the former president's youngest child, and Melania's beloved son. The 16 year old, at 6 feet, seven inches, dwarfed all his six feet plus relatives.
