Melania Trump’s mother, Amalija Knavs, passed away at 78. Melania said she is very sad about it.
“Amalija Knavs was a strong and graceful woman who carried herself with warmth and dignity,” she said.
The reason for death was not given in the short message on X, which was previously called Twitter.
Donald Trump said in Florida that his wife’s mom from Slovenia is very sick.
Mrs Trump said on Tuesday night that she was completely dedicated to her husband, daughters, grandson, and son-in-law.
“We will miss her very much and will always remember and love everything she left behind. ”
Mrs Trump was taking care of her sick mother when people noticed she wasn’t in the Trump family Christmas photo at Mar-a-Lago last month.
Mrs Knavs and her husband, Viktor, became US citizens in 2018 after living in the US with the help of Mrs Trump’s green cards.
She worked at a cloth factory in a town called Sevnica in Slovenia, and her husband Viktor sold cars.
Mrs Trump went to high school in the city of Ljubljana in Slovenia.
In 2005, she met Donald Trump when she was a model. They had a son named Barron in 2006, and she became a US citizen that same year.
