Melania Trump will be advised to divorce Donald ‘quickly’ if charges are filed against the former US President, an expert has claimed.
The pair’s relationship has come under the spotlight in recent weeks following Donald Trump’s election defeat to Joe Biden in November last year.
Rumours have claimed that the couple are in the midst of a ‘martial rift’, according to the Daily Star.
Eric Schiffer, a brand and reputation management expert, says that it is likely that Melania’s advisers will be urging her to ‘move fast’ as a divorce ‘could cost Donald an estimated £150m’.
But the former president is facing charges at the Senate following riots at the Capitol earlier this month.
Melania could potentially lose cash as her husband’s assets could become tied up and he “won’t have the cold cash to pay out”.
Mr Schiffer said: “An indictment for Melania will be neither cool nor fashionable to her acquired tastes.
“Charges against the former President of the United States of America will be the final act in her Trumpian saga that triggers a clear and present danger to their union.
“Melania’s advisers’ calculus will be to move fast because Donald’s divorce will cost Trump over 150 million that, in the end, if she doesn’t move quickly, he won’t have the cold cash to pay out.”
Calls for Donald Trump to face more charges come after the 74-year-old became the first president in US history to be impeached twice.
The House of Representatives accused Mr Trump of encouraging violence with claims of election fraud that ended in riots and a siege at the U.S Capitol building.
As a result, Trump was charged with “incitement of insurrection,” but it is important to remember impeachment charges are political, not criminal.
His post-presidential life is in danger however, as New York prosecutor, Cyrus Vance, is at the helm of a criminal probe investigation whether he Trump Organisation is guilty of various frauds.
