They say behind every successful man there is a strong woman behind him. The saying even rings true with the President of the United States, Donald Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump.
Always a woman of poise, grace, and strength, Melania has proven many times to the media that she is more than just the President’s beautiful wife. Constantly steadfast in supporting and defending her husband when necessary, Melania is also a devoted mother to Barron, their 13-year-old son.
The First Lady is a strong woman, never having been afraid to voice her own opinions even to the President himself. Additionally, in the advent of technology where it’s easy to keep browsing your phone instead of talking to one another, Melania says it doesn’t hurt to say what you think.
During her 2018 trip to Giza, Egypt, Melania was able to make time to speak with some reporters. She was asked about her role in occasionally advising her husband, as well as her reasons for taking business trips.
Melania mentions there are times where President Trump listens to her, and other times where he doesn’t, nevertheless it’s crucial she expresses her own views and feelings. She also stated there were some instances where she doesn’t always agree with the President’s thoughts, and she has never failed to give him her honest advice and opinions.
She even admitted to one reporter that she had also told the President to put down his always busy phone, something we believe all wives ask their busy husbands to do - and the presidential couple is no exception! However, the First Lady has been working with building international relationships with influential people and charitable visits, being an advocate for women and children.
During her visit to Egypt a photo was taken of her with First Lady Entissar Amer, which was commended for being such a powerful representation of the strong women behind every great male leader.
