Former first lady Melania Trump would likely be calling the White House home in name only if Donald Trump returns to the presidency, experts predicted in a new report.

Axios interviewed veteran observers of the reclusive ex-FLOTUS, writing Monday: “So the prospect of her rolling in for a second full-time stint in the East Wing? Doubtful, according to the handful of Melania-ologists.”

The more likely scenario would be her commuting between Palm Beach and New York, where son Barron is rumored to be attending college in the fall, Axios gleaned from the pundits. She would take up at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “only for ceremonial undertakings like state dinners or special events.”

“She’s distancing herself even more from her husband and from the Washington social political scene,” “First Women” author Kate Anderson Brower told Axios. “I mean, she clearly hated being in Washington.”

The Washington Post’s Mary Jordan, the author of the Melania Trump biography “The Art of Her Deal,” said of the former first lady, “Melania does what Melania wants.”

Melania Trump would have small company among first ladies who have not lived at the White House the majority of time after the first occupants took up residence there in 1800.

Anna Harrison was packing to join President William Henry Harrison in Washington before he died a month into his term. She never made the trip.

Bess Truman and President Harry Truman lived at Blair House while renovations were being done at the White House.

But Melania Trump’s living arrangement would be more of a choice.

A 2018 Washington Post report on their life in the White House said the couple had “remarkably separate routines” and slept in their own bedrooms.

But rumors that Melania Trump actually lived with her parents and Barron in another Washington home were shot down by her staff as “100% false.”

The “Melania-ologists” didn’t speculate on what to expect from the former first lady on the hand-holding front for a White House encore, but in one memorable moment it didn’t seem so great the first time around.

A former aide to the ex-first lady, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, said recently that Melania Trump will never separate from her husband but will be more scarce following his criminal conviction.

“She’s going to keep her head low. She’s going to only do what she wants to do. She and Donald, I do not believe, are ever, ever going to part ways.”
