Donald Trump is known for his stalwart support of Christmas. While in office, he was an advocate for Americans saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”
With that came yearly messages with well-wishes from his entire family. The Trump family posts pictures of their entire clan each year. But this year, people noticed something was off with the family picture.

Page Six reported that Melania’s mother, Amalija Knavs, is in the hospital and is very sick. Melania has been by her mother’s side constantly, according to the report.
“Melania has always been very devoted to her entire family,” a source close to the former first lady told Fox News Digital. “It should be no surprise that she spent this Christmas with her ailing mother.”
