President Trump speaks out on Melania's White House role: 'The things they say are so unfair' WTF !!
One day after an Us Weekly report claimed Melania Trump finds it "miserable" to be the first lady, President Trump spoke out on his wife's White House role.
As her first major move as first lady, Melania Trump announced earlier this week that the White House visitor's center will reopen on March 7, 2017 -- allowing for tours of the storied estate.
These oppositional stories have caused many to question Melania Trump's White House role, and how she will differ from first ladies of years past.
"She is going to be a fantastic first lady," Trump said in his lengthy Thursday press conference. "She is going to be a tremendous representative of women and of the people."
The first lady made her first White House appearance since Inauguration Day on Wednesday, when she met with the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and joined her husband in hosting Sen. Marco Rubio and his wife for dinner.
The president also noted that his daughter, Ivanka Trump, will be working closely with the first lady.
Melania also made headlines recently when model Emily Ratajkowski revealed a New York Times reporter called Mrs. Trump a "hooker" during a conversation the two had at a party. The reporter has since apologized.
"She gets so unfairly treated...I've known her for a long time," Trump said. "She was very successful, a very successful model. She would go home at night, and didn't even want to go out with people."
"She was always the highest quality that you'll ever find," the president said of his wife. "The things they say are so unfair."
The president also noted that Melania Trump feels very strongly about women's issues -- something the first lady has yet to speak publicly on since the inauguration.
Ivanka Trump, though, was present at a White House meeting this week attended by President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on women's business initiatives.
"They're not doing this for money, they're not doing this for pay," Trump said. "They're doing this because they feel this, both of them."
