An ABC interview with First Lady Melania Trump has pushed up her poll numbers yet has angered many Americans.
The wife of Donald Trump sat down with Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas while in Africa to talk about an array of topics.
During the interview dubbed Being Melania: The First Lady, the mother of one said she was the most bullied in the world.
She said: “I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world.”
When asked about her husband’s infidelities, Melania had the following to say: “It’s not a concern and focus of mine. I’m a mother and a First Lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do. I know, people like to speculate, and media likes to speculate about our marriage. Media what is speculating, yeah, it’s not always pleasant, of course. But I know what is right, and what is wrong, and what is true and not true.”
Melania also spoke about the now-infamous “I Don’t Care” jacket.
A source told Hollywood Life that Melania did the interview to show unity and help The Donald who is under fire and pressure.
The person explained: “Donald is seriously under fire and under pressure, and he’s nearing a breaking point as the pressure piles on, and the attacks continue. So Melania is doing what she does best in times like this — she’s rallying, and sticking by her husband’s side. Melania is attempting to publicly show unity with Donald, so she’s going along with the party line of the jacket being a message ‘to the Fake News media’ as he tweeted out at the time, in direct contradiction to the statement given by Melania’s own press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who insisted there was no ‘message’ at all, and that it was just ‘a jacket.”
The insider had this say about the jacket debacle: “During her 20/20 interview last night, [Melania] ended up totally contradicting herself — insisting one minute that she wore the jacket ‘for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me.”
During the sit-down, Melania revealed the following about the controversial fashion statement: “I would prefer that they would focus on what I do and on my initiatives than what I wear. Which is bizarre, seeing as she just claimed she wore it specifically to send a message to the people she’s claiming she doesn’t want to focus on what she’s wearing!”
