During a Wednesday evening interview with Sean Hannity, Melania Trump stood up for her husband. She called out the media for the way that they treat her husband and use their family to get ahead.
When asked about the hardest part of her role, Trump said, “I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers… The problem is they are writing the history and it’s not correct.”
She told Hannity that she wants the media to focus on her charitable work. The other ways that they cover her are of far less importance.
“They like to focus on the gossip. And I would like that they focus on the substance and what we do, not just about nonsense," said Melania.
The interview closed with Hannity asking about the possibility of a second term. Melania Trump did not directly answer the question. However, she did say what has made her husband's first term difficult.
“He wants to govern the right way. It’s tough because the media wants to bash and focus on negativity.”
