Melania Trump remains conspicuously silent following her husband, Donald Trump's guilty verdict in his New York hush money trial. However, her former aide, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, has shared that her reaction to the news will not be one of shock.

Wolkoff also weighed in on whether Melania would finally appear in court on July 11th, when Trump will be sentenced. The former first lady has notably distanced herself from the case, but her former assistant thinks she'll make it to court on D-day to act as a "distraction."

Since the start of the trials of Donald Trump, Melania Trump has opted to stay far away from the courtrooms.

In a recent appearance on CNN, Wolkoff shared her thoughts as to how the former first lady would react to her husband's guilty verdict in his New York hush money trial.

Trump was found guilty yesterday on all 34 count charges for falsifying company records to cover up a $130k payment he made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Wolkoff, who served as a former senior advisor to Melania, shared that the mother-of-one would not be taken aback by Trump's guilty verdict.

"Melania knew exactly who she married. She knew that this was a transactional marriage. She became a top model. He became a loving, doting father, and it set them up for their win for the White House," Wolkoff told the news outlet, per DailyMail.

She went further to predict that Melania is "telling him exactly how she feels" with her continued indifference about the whole issue.

Going on to weigh in on whether Melania would appear in court for the billionaire politician's July 11th sentencing, the 53-year-old fashion executive noted that Melania would be seen in court, acting as a "distraction."

"I do believe she will show up, and it will be the art of distraction. It will shine a bright light on Melania when it's needed the most, when other things that are happening in Donald's life need to be shaded," she said.

Melania and Wolkoff used to be close pals before Trump's 2016 election win but soon fell off years into his administration.

An aide to the former president shared that he's "absolutely" bothered that his wife and daughter chose to distance themselves throughout his trial.

In an interview on CNN Wednesday, Trump's former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, disclosed that the presumptive Republican party nominee is perturbed by the lack of support from Melania and Ivanka, having not shown up in court as he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Three of his other children, Donald Jr., Eric, and Tiffany, attended at least once to support their father, much to his liking.

"Absolutely, I know it bothers him. That kind of thing would bother him. If Mrs. Trump wasn't at some event and it was really noted, he would definitely bring it up with her," Grisham said. "So I'm sure in this context, it's definitely really bothering him."

She went on to note that she believes Ivanka chose to stay away from the courtroom to keep the case away from her children and that the pair is "both thinking of their own optics" by staying away.

The Convicted Ex-President Called The Verdict A 'Disgrace'

In the moments after he was found guilty of the felony crimes, Trump lashed out at the verdict, telling reporters outside the courtroom that it was a "disgrace" and insisting that he was innocent.

"This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt," Trump told reporters outside the courtroom after the verdict.

While his lead counsel, Todd Blanche, already shared that they planned to appeal the judgment "as soon as we can," Trump now faces a four-year jail term for each count of the felony crime when his sentencing is held on July 11th.

He makes history as the first US president to be convicted of a felony crime, leaving his 2024 hopes of a potential return to the White House hanging on a thread.

One of Trump's family members has already spoken out about the ex-president's conviction. Donald Trump Jr. broke his silence on his father's guilty verdict, proclaiming that it is a "sad day for America."

Donald Jr said, "Obviously [it's] just a sad day for America. Crazy what's going on in this country. Obviously [no one was] probably expecting anything different with this jury, with this biased judge, whose daughter is profiteering from this stuff."

He later added, "The Democrats have succeeded in their years-long quest to turn our country into an absolute cr-p hole. They've done that. They've been trying for a long time. There's literally no other way about it at this point."
