Donald and Melania Trump were spotted together for the first time in seven months, as the former president remains embroiled in several legal fights.
The couple made their grand entrance at this year’s Halloween party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Tuesday night, with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” blaring, video shows:
While many guests dressed in costume for the holiday, the 45th president opted for his go-to suit and red tie combination while Melania wore a black dress.
It’s the first time the couple has been pictured together in nearly seven months, when they were seen sitting together during Easter brunch at Mar-a-Lago back on April 9.
The couple appeared relaxed as they strolled through the dining room, despite several key family members including Trump’s sons Donald Jr and Eric preparing to take the stand in their father’s fraud trial in New York in the next two days.
Although Trump appeared in an easy-going mood as he soaked up the atmosphere on Halloween night, his ongoing legal troubles in New York have potential to endanger the future of his family enterprise.
His sons are set to testify in his civil fraud case in the coming days, with Donald Trump Jr expected to testify Wednesday and Eric Trump on Thursday.
The duo have been subpoenaed by Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James, as she alleges that Trump and his top executives exaggerated his wealth by billons to secure loans on his business deals.
Trump himself is slated to testify on Monday, followed by his eldest daughter Ivanka, a former Trump Organization executive who has since stepped away from the business.
After Ivanka takes the stand, expected to come on November 8, the state is expected to rest their case, offering Trump’s legal team the chance to mount a challenge and call their own witnesses.
