( – Melania Trump was notably absent from Thursday night’s debate between former President Trump and President Biden.

There was no comment from the Trump campaign about the guest list for the debate, nor from Melania Trump’s office about her attendance.

Karoline Leavitt, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, provided a non-specific answer when asked by NBC News about Melania Trump’s attendance, stating, “I have no specific names, but you will find out when he lands in Atlanta.”

Former President Trump arrived in Atlanta accompanied by several aides including campaign advisers Susie Wiles and Chris LaCivita, former campaign aide Corey Lewandowski, communications aide Margo Martin, and his personal assistant Walt Nauta.

A CNN reporter highlighted on the social media platform X that Melania Trump was not seen deplaning with the former president, to which the Trump campaign’s rapid response team sarcastically replied, “CNN reporter arrives in Atlanta for the debate and is not accompanied by a spouse or partner. SAD!”

Melania Trump has been largely inactive in her husband’s latest presidential campaign. Although she was present at the campaign’s initiation in 2022, she has not been seen at his campaign rallies or during his celebratory moments following primary wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, or on Super Tuesday.

She also did not appear during the former president’s trial in New York City, where he faced and was convicted of 34 felony charges of falsifying business records related to a hush money scheme during the 2016 campaign.

Despite her minimal public appearances, Melania Trump hosted a fundraiser for the LGBTQ group Log Cabin Republicans at Mar-a-Lago in Florida this April and was seen with Trump during the Florida primary in March. She is also slated to host another fundraiser for the same group in New York soon.

In stark contrast, First Lady Jill Biden was present alongside President Biden at the debate.
