Former First Lady Melania Trump was seen for the first time since her husband Donald Trump became a convicted felon, with their son Barron Trump and ‘piles of luggage’.

Melania and Barron were spotted leaving Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan on Tuesday, five days after the ex-president was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in his hush money trial.

The former first lady wore a brown-gold jumpsuit, a matching purse and sunglasses, according to the New York Post, which captured photos. She was followed by her 18-year-old son wearing a dark blue suit and white shirt without a tie.

Melania looked down and went into a Secret Service SUV.

Packed into the back of the black car were at least seven Louis Vuitton luggage bags and multiple garment holders with Barron’s initials, the newspaper reported.

Melania and Barron, who graduated from high school last month, did not once accompany the former president at Manhattan Criminal Court during the trial that ran six weeks.

They also failed to appear on Friday morning at Trump Tower, where Trump delivered a speech slamming the New York judge overseeing the trial. Trump also admitted it wasa ‘bad thing’ for him and that he wished people had ‘a little sorrow’ for him.

Melania has remained silent throughout the trial and in its aftermath.

Her husband on Sunday gave an update on how she took his guilty verdict.

‘She’s fine, but I think it’s very hard for her. She’s fine, but she has to read all this crap,’ Trump told Fox & Friends Weekend.

He added, referring also to Barron: ‘I think in many ways it’s tougher on my family than it is on me.’

Trump continued, ‘I have a wonderful wife who has to listen to this stuff all the time.’

The trial revolved around a $130,000 hush payment that Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, made to porn star Stormy Daniels to silence her during the 2016 campaign on an alleged sexual affair. Cohen, the star witness, testified that Trump ‘wasn’t thinking about Melania’ in trying to stop the story from going out in the press, and that it ‘was all about the campaign’.

Daniels on Sunday offered advice to Melania.

‘I don’t know what their agreement may or may not be, but Melania needs to leave him,’ she told The Sunday Mirror.

‘Not because of what he did with me or other women but because he is a convicted felon. It’s been proven he is abusive; he was found liable for sexual assault and tax fraud and is now a criminal.’

But the Secret Service vehicle that left Trump Tower with Melania and her son was headed to New Jersey, according to the Post. There in Bedminster, the Trump family owns an estate and golf course.
