Melania Trump counting minutes until divorce when Donald leaves White House

US President incumbent Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump is planning to end their 15-year "transactional marriage" and is "counting the minutes until divorce" when Donald leaves the White House after losing to Joe Biden in US election 2020.
A former White House aide has claimed that the couple's 15-year marriage is over and that Melania is "counting every minute until he is out of the office and she can divorce."
The reason why she is not leaving while Donald Trump is still in office is because if Melania "were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her," alleged Omarosa Manigault Newman, former director of communications of the White House Office of Public Liaison, according to a report by London-based tabloid Daily Mail.
Newman had resigned unexpectedly in December 2017 in a public falling out with Donald Trump.
One of Melania's friends asserted that she burst into tears when her husband won the elections in 2016 as she "never expected him to win" and that she waited five months before moving from New York to Washington, allegedly because the couple's son Barron "needed to finish school."
However, claiming otherwise, Stephanie Wolkoff, an American fashion and entertainment executive and former senior adviser to Melania, stated that the latter was negotiating a post-nuptial agreement with Donald Trump to give Barron an equal share of his fortune.
Wolkoff also alleged that the Trumps had separate bedrooms in the White House and a "transactional marriage".
Despite rumours galore and frigid moments in public, Melania claims she has "a great relationship" with her husband. Donald Trump also asserts that they never argue.
According to his prenuptial arrangement with second wife Marla Maples, the latter cannot publish any book or give interviews that are critical of Donald Trump. Melania is said to have agreed to a similar code of silence.
Melana married Trump in 2005, gave birth to their son Barron in March 2006, and obtained U.S. citizenship in July 2006.
Melana came to the United States from Slovenia in 1996, residing briefly on a visitor's visa and then obtained H-1B work visas.
During the months that she campaigned with her husband prior to his successful bid for presidency, Melania Trump defended his hard-line on immigration practices and laws by stating that her own path and achievement of citizenship had been legal, unlike those of the individuals her husband was campaigning against.
Melana met then-real estate mogul Donald Trump at a party, in 1998 and the couple began dating while the latter was in the process of divorcing his second wife, Marla Maples.
Looks like the unexpected defeat of Trump from the hands of Joe Biden has put the former President's love life under jeopardy.
Immediately after his ancesion into power, Biden is likely to s to increase the number of high-skilled visas, including the H-1B, and eliminate the limit on employment-based visas by country, both of which are expected to benefit tens of thousands of Indian professionals impacted by some immigration policies of the outgoing Trump administration.
