Melania Trump will make a rare campaign appearance at Donald Trump’s campaign event tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The GOP presidential candidate is behind Ted Cruz in polls for Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary and hopes his wife will help make up ground. NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander said on MSNBC Monday morning that he “thinks” the last time Melania joined her husband on the campaign trail was back in South Carolina over one month ago.
A large amount of Wisconsin voters are reportedly intrigued by Trump’s celebrity element and Alexander said Melania will “only help.” This comes the day after Trump was in the news for numerous reasons related to woman, including Megyn Kelly, Ivana Trump and Heidi Cruz.
Ivana endorsed the anti-immigration policies of her ex-husband, in a revealing New York Post story. Fox News host Kelly told Charlie Rose that some of the collateral benefit of sparring with Trump has been a big boost to her professional exposure. Meanwhile, Trump said he regrets a retweet of a meme that included a photo of Cruz’s wife.
The GOP frontrunner also sidestepped a recent question about if he’s ever dated a woman who had an abortion.
