Former US President Donald Trump has been convicted on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in his historic criminal trial in New York. He hit out at the court saying the verdict was a ‘disgrace’. But how does his wife Melania Trump feel about the verdict? That's all Googler's seem to care about, with Google Trends showing an abundance of breakout search terms about the pairs relationship.

Right now, 'Where is Melania Trump?' is the biggest question people are Googling, as well as 'Is Melania Trump still with Donald?' and 'Will Melania divorce Donald Trump?' - 'Melania Trump news today' is even trending.

Donald Trump, who is the frontrunner to win the next presidential election in November, is the first former or serving US president to be convicted of a crime. He’s due to be sentenced on 11 July and could face time in prison, although legal experts say a fine is more likely.

Aside from the public humiliation of the verdict, the case was centred around Trump’s alleged sexual encounter with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006. He was married to Melania Trump at the time, and she had given birth to their son Barron four months prior. That expains why everyone is also Googling 'When did Trump marry Melania' then...

What did Stormy Daniels say about her relationship with Donald Trump while he was married to Melania?

Daniels says she had sex with Trump in 2006, which he denies, and that she was paid to stay quiet about it ahead of the 2016 election, which Trump won. Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said he was told to pay Daniels a $130,000 hush-money fee to silence her.

The payment itself was not illegal, but prosecutors said Trump recorded the reimbursement to Cohen as a legal expense. The former president was also accused of violating state election law.

What does Melania Trump think about Donald's conviction?

While Melania Trump has not given a statement about the trial, her former long-term adviser Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has offered her insight into what may be happening behind closed doors.

Speaking on CNN she said, ‘I think the family is speaking very clearly and vocally to Donald, as Melania always does, and as I used to witness. I think she’s telling him exactly how she feels and I think she is holding a mirror up to him to show him that his brazen attempts of trying to subvert our democracy and his attempt to hush everyone into believing that he did or did not sleep with Stormy Daniels has nothing to do with the fact that this is about election interference.’

When asked how Melania might feeling about the allegations, Wolkoff continued, ‘I think, you know, that Donald finally got caught. Along the way, Melania knew exactly who she married. She knew that this was a transactional marriage – she became a top model and he became a loving, doting father. It set them up for their run for the White House.’

Where is Melania Trump now?

Melania Trump did not attend her husband's trial and her former adviser does not anticipate that she will attend his sentencing on 11 July. She said that if she does make an appearance it will be ‘the art of distraction’ and will ‘shine a light on Melania’ when things in Trump’s life ‘need to be shaded’.

The former first lady was last seen on Easter Sunday after lunch at Mar-a-Lago with their son Barron and has been absent at all of Trump's trials and campaign events.
