Melania Trump's Net Worth Revealed To Be A Reported $50 Million

The Trump family was well to do well before the presidency was even a glimmer in President Donald Trump’s eyes, and it will remain so when his time in office comes to a close. During his time in the private sector, Trump built a vast business empire that his children continue to spearhead while he’s tied up with the whole commander-in-chief thing.

Money’s no object, and that applies to all members of the family.

That obviously also applies to First Lady Melania Trump, but it’s not like she just married into money. FLOTUS was successful in her own right before she caught the president’s eye. As the Inquisitr shares, she was able to amass an impressive fortune all by herself.

“Melania Trump has been married to Donald Trump, a known billionaire, since 2005. However, she entered their marriage with a career as a model and has continued to earn throughout their marriage,” Inquisitr reports. “Because of her extensive professional history, the first lady has reportedly amassed a net worth of $50 million, according to Express UK, via Celebrity Net Worth.”

So how did Melania manage to earn so much cash? Prior to marrying Trump, Melania had an extensive modeling career that led to her becoming quite famous.

She graced the covers of magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Allure, and Vogue, and that time in the sun obviously came with some substantial financial rewards.

However, it’s not just her beauty that led to the First Lady amassing such a nice nest egg. She took advantage of her high profile to launch a number of successful businesses, including her QVC “Melania Timepieces and Jewellery” collection, and a caviar skin care called “Melania by Melania Trump.”

There are many famous folks that don’t achieve very much success in their second act, but Melania turned that trick without too much trouble. That’s a testament to her and her alone, and those that write her off as just another pretty face are sorely mistaken.

The entrepreneurial spirit clearly runs deep in the Trump family, so perhaps that’s part of what brought the First Couple together. There’s a good chance that Melania has a ton of lessons that she can share with aspiring female entrepreneurs, so perhaps she can look into that after Trump’s time in office comes to a close.

While she continues to fly under the radar as First Lady, Melania’s approval ratings continue to rise. Melania has shown herself to be a dedicated mother that always puts the needs of her son, Barron, first, and she exudes elegance and grace whenever she appears as a representative of the White House. The same can’t be said for her husband’s approval ratings, but that’s another story for another day.

In any event, Melania brings quite a bit to the table for her role as First Lady, and it would be nice to see her spread her wings and take a more active role in the areas she wants to focus on. It sounds like she could easily make a ton of difference, so it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out.
