Megyn Kelly, former President Donald J. Trump shared insights about former First Lady Melania Trump, who has maintained a low-key public profile since their departure from the White House, often described as reclusive.
As reported by BizPac Review, Trump and Kelly delved into the topics of the first lady and Trump’s youngest son, Barron. When asked about Melania, Trump responded, “She’s doing very well.” He went on to describe her as “very strong, very even-keeled,” and emphasized that she is “a very good woman,” a sentiment that Kelly acknowledged.
“She was a very popular first lady,” Trump added. “I mean, I’d go out to rallies, and they have pictures of Melania with ‘We love our first lady,’ Trump added of posters seen in the audience at his rallies.
Kelly asked him, “Melania’s so mysterious to so many. What do people misunderstand about her?”
Trump replied, “I think part of the beauty is that mystery.” He then hearkened back to a past interview with Barbara Walters, who told him that she always wanted to interview the legendary Hollywood recluse Greta Garbo, to whom he compared Melania.
“She was a great actress… she had a great beauty, but she was very reclusive, never did an interview,” Trump said wistfully.
“I don’t see Melania as like that, but she is much more… you know she’s introspective, and she’s confident,” he continued that she didn’t need “to be ripped apart for no reason. She doesn’t need to be out there. She’s got confidence, she’s got a lot of self-confidence.”
“The people really like her,” he added. “And she was a really good first lady.”
