First Lady Melania Trump praised her husband in a new interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, but steered away from discussing his running for a second term in the Oval Office.
Melania sat down for an interview aboard the USS George H.W. Bush, after spending the day with the troops at Joint Base Langley in Hampton, Virginia. As reported by the Daily Mail, she also said that sometimes she doesn't agree with Donald Trump, but that she believes he is doing "what's right" for the country and for the American people. However, when asked about his 2020 bid, the First Lady avoided the straight-up "yes" answer many would have expected.
"I think my husband is doing an incredible job," she said. "I want the country to continue to do well."
She also slammed the media and the "opportunists," claiming one of the hardest parts of her role was to deal with people who use her "family name to advance themselves," including comedians, journalists, and performers. Melania said she wished the mainstream media would focus "on the substance," rather than the gossip, stating that she's grown accustomed to the criticism but that she always does what she "thinks is right for the country and for the people."
"That's why I say I want to stay true to myself and listen to myself... and live a meaningful life every day."
