As Trump marks his 78th birthday, several expected Melania to make a statement or post celebrating her husband's new age. However, like in the past months, Melania has chosen not to say a word about the former president.

On the other hand, Trump always celebrates his wife publicly. In April, he wished her a happy birthday from outside the courtroom of his New York City hush money trial.

On special days like Valentine's Day, Trump has also made efforts to express his love for his wife and highlight their marriage. Still, Melania never reciprocates his actions, at least not publicly.

The couple has previously been plagued with rumors that their marriage is more like a "business" and not based on love.

Ivanka Trump speaks during a campaign event for her father at the Bayfront Park Amphitheatre on October 27, 2020 in Miami Florida.

Ivanka, a senior adviser during her father's presidency, is reportedly contemplating joining Trump's 2024 campaign. Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, who also served in the Trump administration, stepped away from politics after Trump lost the 2020 election.

After her father announced his third presidential run in November 2022, Ivanka stated, "I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics."

However, she may be reconsidering. A source close to Ivanka told Puck News, "After a long-standing position of ruling it out, she's more open to it. It's getting more real, it's revving up."

The source added that the 42-year-old has been increasingly open to the idea of being "helpful again."
