Some people just have that je ne sais quoi, that certain likability factor that you can't reproduce easily. And it seems Melania Trump has it--and her husband realizes its worth.
The First Lady just gave a speech this week honoring the strength of persecuted women around the world. She commended women who faced incredibly difficult circumstances and showed amazing courage.
"Their lives remind us of the boundless capacity of the human spirit when guided by moral clarity and desire to do good," she said of the 12 honorees, reports CNN.
"Ask yourself if you would have the fortitude of spirit, the courage of your convictions, and the enormous inner strength required to stand up and fight against such odds," Trump said.
Now, since that speech, Mrs. Trump's approval ratings have increased even more, to 52%. These numbers stand in strong contrast to her husband's, currently at 35%, which the media continually points to as proof of his failure.
But Trump, instead of acting defensive, just praised his wife, reports the Daily Caller. “She’s doing a great job,” Trump said during a panel about women’s empowerment Wednesday.
“I shouldn’t say this, but her poll numbers have gone through the roof last week. What was that all about? Through the roof. She has to give us the secret, Mike. Right?”
It's quite possible her "secret" is a quiet strength and authenticity, combined with her strong sense of family and faith. What do you think? Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments!
