Melania Trump has moved into the White House with her son, Barron Trump, Sunday, five months after her husband President Donald Trump took office. While she has had to face heavy criticism for her lack of contribution as the first lady, experts predict the current move will be a positive thing for the White House, which is in disarray over the president’s falling approval ratings and controversies like the Russian hacking investigation.

Till now, Melania had made 11-year-old Barron’s studies her main priority and hence had opted to stay back at Trump Tower in New York City, instead of joining her husband at the White House, a decision that only a few first ladies have preferred in the past.

Hence, during the first 100 days of her husband’s term, Melania was rarely seen by his side, while he made vital policy decisions like repealing Obamacare and drawing up an immigration ban. Having failed to implement both and facing more criticism on his administrative capabilities than ever, POTUS is now lashing out at his own aides in frustration and using Twitter as a weapon to revolt, Politico reported.

At a sensitive time like this, Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide close to the first family, told Politico Wednesday that her presence will have a positive influence on the president’s mood and the general atmosphere of the White house.

"I’m very happy she’s moving here," said Nunberg. "She’s a strong influence and personality, and I think she comforts him."

Katherine Jellison, an Ohio University history professor who specializes in first lady studies, echoed Nunberg’s views, adding that even though her presence might not have a lasting impression on the president’s decisions, the first couple living together in the White House could relay the message of strong familiar values to the American people.

"Her presence is not going to stop any investigations, but at a time when this particular presidency needs an air of stability, it might lend that," Jellison told Politico.

Reports of marital troubles brewing between the president and his wife started doing the rounds after a couple of recent videos which insinuated the latter did not want to hold her husband's hand in public. While the first viral video showed Melania slapping her husband’s hand away at the airport in Israel, another video showed her taking her hand away to tame her flying locks the moment that the president was reaching for it, after the first couple landed in Rome.

Nevertheless, Melania was given credit for keeping POTUS away from social media during the entire trip, Trump's first foreign tour after taking office, Newsweek reported. Hence, there is a good chance that her presence in the White House might lead to fewer controversial tweets from the president.

Melania has also visited a number of children’s hospitals in New York and Washington, D.C., and also other countries like Belgium and Italy in the past months, as a result of which, she was more popular than her husband when it came to public polls, during the president’s first 100 days, the Telegraph reported.

Melania has already started embracing her role as first lady when she spent the last few weeks in the White House, preparing the East Wing staff for the family’s big move. There is also an increase in the number of public events she will be attending in the near future. The first lady attended a fundraising gala for Ford’s Theatre with step-daughter Ivanka on June 5. She and the president also hosted a reception later that at the White House to honor Gold Star families.

"I do think once she's in D.C. there'll be more pressure for her to be working on something that's her own, that's helping some segment of the population because that's what first ladies are supposed to do," Jean Harris, professor of political science and women's studies at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, said, according to the Telegraph report.
