Trump news – live: Melania ‘planning divorce,’ says Donald’s ex-aide as Cohen thinks ‘loser’ will flee

Melania Trump, first lady, and Donald Trump, US president, on election night

With Donald Trump still refusing to concede the US presidential election to Joe Biden despite his defeat, the first lady is reportedly planning to leave her husband and end their 15-year marriage.

“Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce,” former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman told The Mail on Sunday, suggesting Mrs Trump would wait until January to save the president the “ultimate humiliation” of leaving his side while still in office and avoid any possible retaliation.

Michael Cohen, the leader’s estranged former personal attorney, has meanwhile said he “would not be shocked if there is no concession speech at all” from Mr Trump and that he expects him not return to the White House after Christmas for Mr Biden’s inauguration. ‘’He is just a loser and it is killing him,” Mr Cohen said.

The first lady did come forward to break her silence on the election on Sunday, tweeting in support of her husband’s baseless accusations that the race was “stolen” by Democrats engaged in “voter fraud”, despite being unable to produce any evidence to substantiate the claim.
