As Donald Trump publicly mulls his political future, playing a game of "will he-won't he" in a potential bid for the White House in 2024, all the while flexing influence in primaries for next year's midterms, there is one key person noticeably quiet. Again.
Melania Trump, perhaps the most private first lady in modern history, has retreated more and more from the spotlight since departing Washington last January. She has been seen publicly just once this summer, spotted in July by photographers leaving Trump Tower in New York City, accompanied by her son. Other than that, with the exception of a few Instagram posts from random people who happened to glimpse her in the dining room at Trump's Bedminster Golf Club, Trump -- ever the enigma -- hasn't purposefully set foot in front of a camera.
