Melania Trump likes tweet questioning how she obtained visa

Only Melania Trump could know why she liked a tweet pondering the mystery of how she snagged a green card.

The First Lady’s personal Twitter account, not the government-issued platform reserved for the President’s spouse, liked a video Sunday night from a progressive talk show titled, “How Exactly Did Melania Trump Get an "Einstein Visa?"

The eight-minute clip uploaded Saturday examines how in 2000, Trump, then a Slovenian model dating real estate tycoon Donald Trump, obtained a green card through the EB-1 program. A visa of that caliber is typically reserved for researchers, entertainers and athletes with “national and international acclaim.”

Trump liked the tweet from the White House just before 10 p.m. and it remained on her feed as of early Monday.

“This matters not only because the first lady of the United States shouldn’t have questionable immigration circumstances in her past,” said David Pakman, the show’s host. “So much of Donald Trump’s focus during his campaign has been on illegal immigration and visas and the wall and deportations and so-called extreme vetting.”

Much of Pakman’s argument stems from last week’s Washington Post report that more than one million obtained a green card in 2001. Trump was among the 1% that entered the country under the EB-1 program for their “extraordinary ability.”

Her acceptance helped Trump bring her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs to the U.S.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Melania Trump’s rogue Twitter made headlines in May 2017 after she appeared to like a left-wing blogger’s social media post suggesting her marriage to Donald Trump was distant.

The like vanished from Trump’s Twitter feed after an hour and a half.
