Throughout her husband Donald Trump’s hugely successful presidential campaign, Melania Trump has mostly stayed in the background to raise the couple’s young son.
Recently, however, Melania sat down with Harper’s Bazaar for an in depth interview, and it turns out she has a LOT to say after all! Melania told the publication that it is Donald’s tenacious, un-PC talk that resonates with voters, and it is what will also make him a great leader.
“He is not politically correct, and he tells the truth,” she said, according to IJ Review. “Everything is not roses and flowers and perfect, because it is not. He wants America to be great again, and he can do that.”
“He is a great leader—the best leader, an amazing negotiator,” she added. “America needs that, and he believes in America. He believes in its potential and what it can be, because it is now in big trouble.”
For Bazaar’s February 2016 issue, Donald Trump’s first lady, #MelaniaTrump, talks candidly to #AlexKuczynski about her husband’s controversial presidential bid, their married life, and why she’s stayed out of the spotlight—until now.

As an immigrant herself, Melania also gave an interesting take on her husband’s controversial immigration policies.
“I came here for my career, and I did so well, I moved here. It never crossed my mind to stay here without papers. That is just the person you are.
“You follow the rules. You follow the law. Every few months you need to fly back to Europe and stamp your visa.
“After a few visas, I applied for a green card and got it in 2001. After the green card, I applied for citizenship. And it was a long process.”
Finally, Melania addressed why she has stayed away from the campaign to raise the couple’s son Baron.
“I don’t have a nanny. I have a chef, and I have my assistant, and that’s it. I do it myself,” she explained. “You know, those hours with your child are really important ones, even if it’s just the two of you, being quiet in the car together.”
We’ve got to say, we LOVE Melania Trump, and we can’t wait for her to become our next first lady!
