Melania Trump Admits She Asks Her Husband to Put Down His Phone and Stop Tweeting
Melania Trump is known to subtly communicate through her wardrobe, even offering potential jabs at the president with outfits that hold secret meanings. But now, FLOTUS is making her opinions crystal clear in a rare unscripted interview with the press.
On Saturday, Trump spoke with reporters while wrapping up her four-country tour of Africa in Cairo, Egypt. During the short Q&A session, Melania revealed that she sometimes asks Donald to put down the phone and stop tweeting.
"I don't always agree with what he tweets, and I tell him that," she said, per The Daily Mail.
"I give my honest opinion and honest advice. Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't, but I have my own voice and opinions, and it's very important to me I express what I feel," she continued.
A reporter then asked her: "Have you ever told him to put his phone down?" She replied, "yes," with a laugh.
As a followup question, a journalist asked if she was trying to "scare" the president into being more polite, and Trump responded: "No, I tell him my opinions, what I believe, and in some of them maybe we don't agree."
"I'm not elected, he's the president," she added.
As the first lady, Melania has developed a program that hopes to put an end to cyber-bullying, despite the vicious tweets her husband posts on what seems to be a daily basis. She has received much criticism for the "hypocritical" endeavor. Maybe next time, she should try to physically hide his phone.
