Where Is Melania Trump? Election Day For The Trumps Will Be At The Midtown Hilton
Nov. 8 will be a whirlwind of a day when the nation will head to the polls to decide, once and for all, whether Republican nominee Donald Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will be elected president. And each side has already picked out their venues for the big night ― in Clinton's case, she'll be at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. But what about the Trump clan, and more specifically, Melania? If you're wondering where Melania Trump will be on Election Day, it's a safe bet she'll be alongside her husband where what's already being confidently billed as the candidate's "victory party" is being held.
Namely, the Midtown Hilton hotel on Manhattan's Avenue of the Americas. It was announced this week that the Trump campaign would be holding its election night event from the luxury hotel's ballroom, although it's not an event that's open to the public ― to the contrary, it's reportedly limited to "friends and supporters of the Trump-Pence campaign."
That surely includes the candidates' families. In a presidential campaign, there's no moment either more exuberant or more crushing that the moment a victory or loss is made final, which is why candidates typically like to have their loved ones close at hand. As such, if you're trying to find Melania on Tuesday night, you probably won't, because she'll almost certainly be at the lavish ballroom event.
For what it's worth, Melania finally broke her silence and returned to the spotlight of her husband's presidential run this week, giving a speech explaining her support for him, why she thinks he'd be a good president, and perhaps most notably, speaking out against cyber-bullying. That last part earned the speech a fair amount of derision and skepticism, both in the mainstream media and on social media alike, considering that if you're talking cyber-bullies, the Donald himself definitely qualifies.
Regardless, it's sure to be a dramatic night for the Trump Team, no matter what the outcome might be. The only real question will be which venue is full of cheers and excitement, and which one is filled with tension, dismay, and regret. Will the Clinton folks be partying at the Javits center, or will the Hilton Midtown be ground zero for a new presidential administration? Make no mistake, you won't want to miss it ― make sure you tune in on Tuesday night to follow the election coverage, after you vote, of course.
