Did he just poke fun at his marriage issues? President of the United States Donald Trump usually has a thin skin when it comes to criticism, but it turns out that he is actually capable of making fun of himself. POTUS took the stage at the Gridiron dinner on Saturday, March 4 and he hinted at trouble with his marriage with wife Melania Trump for the first time since In Touch published details about Trump’s 2006 affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.
“So many people have been leaving the White House. It’s actually been really exciting and invigorating ’cause you want new thought. So, I like turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Now the question everyone keeps asking is, ‘Who is going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller or Melania?'” he said, according to CNN.

It seemed like Trump was making fun of the resignation of former communications director Hope Hicks, which came one day after she admitted that she told “white lies” on behalf of Trump to a congressional investigative committee. But the president quickly backtracked on his statements, according to People, and told reporters that Melania was “actually having a great time” at the White House.
In the aftermath of Trump’s affair scandal, it seemed like Melania was upset with her husband and she seemed to drop subtle clues that hinted at a strain in their marriage. For instance, the couple — who wed in 2005 — did not wish each other a Happy Valentine’s Day on social media last month. But just one week before they seemingly snubbed each other on the holiday, sources revealed to Hollywood Life that Melania had been considering divorce — but one thing is stopping her.
“Regardless of any animosity between the two, she will not seek any type of divorce with Donald while he is in office. She is focused solely on Barron and his well being and will not do anything to disrupt that or get in the way that,” the insider revealed.
