Seeing Donald Trump served with more presidency-related charges will be the final straw for Melania before she pushes for divorce, according to new claims.
If Donald Trump finds himself in another hot mess, his wife Melania will be advised to serve him with divorce papers as fast as she can, while his bank account still boasts of big numbers.
The Trump couple has been surrounded by divorce rumors ever since it became clear that they would have to bid farewell to life in Washington. Now, an expert has claimed that Melania is one final scandal away from ending their marriage of 16 years. Eric Schiffer, a brand and reputation management expert, revealed that Melania will be told to "move fast" with her divorce if more charges are racked up against Trump.
If the former president is faced with more accusations, his third wife will be triggered to end their marriage because it will no longer be "cool nor fashionable" for her to stay with him."An indictment for Melania will be neither cool nor fashionable to her acquired tastes," Schiffer told Daily Star. "Charges against the former President of the United States of America will be the final act in her Trumpian saga that triggers a clear and present danger to their union."
If the Trump couple does decide to split up, Melania will reportedly be advised not to delay the divorce process, so that her 74-year-old husband will still have the money for a hefty pay out.
"Melania's advisers' calculus will be to move fast because Donald's divorce will cost Trump over 150 million that, in the end, if she doesn't move quickly, he won't have the cold cash to pay out," Schiffer added.
Four years ago, when Trump took over the White House as the country's 45th president, Melania reportedly stayed behind in New York and waited to move to Washington, claiming that she didn't want to disrupt their son, Barron's studies. It was also reported that Melania used this time to renegotiate the original prenuptial agreement she had with Trump before finally joining him at the White House.
By then, Melania would have been with Trump longer than his first two wives, which gives her more power to bargain and tip the scales in her favor, according to The Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan, who authored the book, The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.
Melania's original prenup with Trump was reportedly not generous enough, but after he became president, she had it renegotiated and ensured that their son, Barron, also benefitted. "She wanted proof in writing that when it came to financial opportunities and inheritance, Barron would be treated as more of an equal to Trump’s oldest three children," Jordan wrote in her book.
Jordan described the former first lady as the kind of person who "would seize an opportunity and put great effort into it. Then she would move on and never look back."
While Melania and Trump may seem like they are poles apart in the public eye, Jordan added that they have more similarities than one might assume, saying: "She is... much more like him than it appears."
The author went on to say, "They are both fighters and survivors and prize loyalty over almost all else... Neither the very public Trump nor the very private Melania has many close friends. Their loner instincts filter into their own marriage."
