Former President Donald Trump shared a romantic video of his wife, Melania Trump, after social media users mocked them over the former first lady's facial expressions at their fundraiser in Palm Beach, Florida.

Melania, who has been out of the spotlight, accompanied Trump to the fundraiser, which reportedly brought in more than $50 million in donations.

Some fans of the presumptive GOP nominee think her appearance at the fundraiser means she will be taking a more active role on Trump's campaign trail.

Donald Trump Shares Sweet Video Montage Of His Wife, Melania

The billionaire politician took to his Truth Social platform yesterday to share a heart-warming video of his wife after both of them were mocked on social media.

Trump seems to have posted it as a way to shut up the haters and prove that they are still very much in love with each other.

The video began with Trump calling Melania an "amazing mother" and an "incredible woman." It then featured clips of their time as the country's first citizens and even some footage of their wedding.

The 1987 song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Starship can be heard playing in the background throughout the video.

The Melania video comes after social media users mocked the couple on Saturday after a campaign fundraiser with major donors at the Palm Beach home of billionaire investor John Paulson.

As he arrived at the event with Melania, Trump told reporters that it had been an "incredible evening before it even started" as people wanted to "contribute to a cause of making America great again."

"We're going to make America great again; everyone knows it," he added.

However, videos and photos of Melania outside the event made netizens believe she did not want to attend, having missed several of Trump's recent events.

"Melania, who hasn't been seen in public for months, doesn't look very happy for someone who is gearing up to be First Lady again--a job we know she absolutely adored..." journalist Victoria Brownworth wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

Ron Filipkowski, an attorney and the editor-in-chief of the liberal outlet Meidas Touch, wrote: "Melania looks like she's in a hostage video tonight. Blink twice if you need help."

One fan noted that Melania looked like "she's dreading every minute spent with Donald Trump."

Trump's campaign team announced that the closed-door event, held at Palm Beach and hosted by billionaire John Paulson, garnered over $50 million in donations.

"After locking up the nomination in one of the fastest primaries in modern political history, Donald J. Trump is winning poll after poll and proving that the enthusiasm is on his side," Trump campaign advisors Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a statement, per Newsweek.

They added, "It's clearer than ever that we have the message, the operation, and the money to propel President Trump to victory on November 5."

The amount almost doubled the $26 million that President Joe Biden's campaign said it raised at an event with former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.

The Billionaire Faced Difficulties Raising The Money To Pay His $454M Bond

Donald Trump's Marriage To Melania Is Allegedly Only About 'Business And Not Pleasure'

Trump's fundraiser of over $50 million comes after he posted a $175 million bond in his New York City civil fraud case.

The former president was found guilty of inflating his net worth to secure more favorable business loans in a civil fraud case brought against him and the Trump organization by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The penalty accrued to over $454 million with interest as he faced a deadline to pay the amount or risk seizure of his assets. According to reports, Trump had difficulty paying the hefty bond, as over 30 surety entities denied his request for coverage.

Trump took to his Truth Social platform to slam the judge presiding over the case after he posted the $175 million bond.

"I've just posted a 175 Million Dollar Bond with the sadly failing and very troubled State of New York, based on a Corrupt Judge and Attorney General who used a Statute that was never used for this before, where no Jury was allowed, my financial statements were conservative and had a 100% perfect caution/non-reliance clause, there were no victims (except me!), there was no crime or damage, there was only success and HAPPY BANKS," Trump wrote.
