Supporters of President Trump are sad to learn that Don Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa Trump are filing for divorce.
According to the Daily Mail, while they have not legally separated yet, they have been living separate lives. The couple has been married for 13 years and have five children – Kai (10), Donald III (9), Tristan (7), Spencer (5) and Chloe (3).
Divorce proceedings have not yet been initiated, but friends say they expect the couple to file soon. One source told Page Six, “The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president’s time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues. He’s never there.”
Don Jr., 40, has been traveling a lot. In February he was in India, and he has continued to take hunting trips without his wife.
The two have been spotted together less and less in recent months, and spent almost no time with one another over the holidays at Mar-a-Lago. Don Jr posted a number of videos to social media during the two weeks that the pair were in Palm Beach which showed him with the couple’s children but never Vanessa.
Vanessa was also absent from one of the family dinners and did not attend the annual New Year’s Eve gala, with Don Jr. instead taking his son Donnie. It was also his birthday that night.
Then, in February, it was revealed that Vanessa was at an apartment a few blocks away from the family’s residence in Manhattan when she opened a letter addressed to her husband containing a mystery white powder.
Of course, the media is going to use this story to try and tear down the Trump family. But Trump supporters are not likely to waver–they will stand behind the president and his family no matter what.
