Melania Trump Announces Mother’s Death at 78: Amalija Knavs Suffered From Cancer


Melania Trump’s mother, Amalija Knaus has died from cancer at age 78.

A few years ago the late Ivana Trump told me Mrs. Knauss told me Melania was taking care of her mother in Bedminster, New Jersey. It was an explanation for all of Melania’s absences from official events.

Let’s face it, no one likes Melania. But losing your mother is a big deal. Condolences to her and her father and their family.
