Brigitte Macron says Melania Trump is constrained by White House

French First Lady Brigitte Macron was quite taken by American counterpart Melania Trump, but feels bad that she “cannot do anything” because of her security detail.

“She can’t even open a window at the White House,” she told Le Monde in comments carried by the Guardian. “She can’t go outside. She’s much more constrained than I am. I go out every day in Paris.”

President Trump has fostered a bromance with Emmanuel Macron, palling around with the French President during his first state visit last week.

That extended to the first ladies, as Brigitte Macron described the first lady as “actually really fun” as well as “kind, charming, intelligent and very open.”

“We have the same sense of humour,” Macron, 65, said of the 48-year-old former model. “We laugh a lot together.”

She added that Trump may seem guarded in public sometimes because anything she does “is interpreted, over-interpreted.”

The French first lady expressed her own problems with being open in public given her high-profile position.

“She’s someone who has a strong personality, but works hard to hide it,” Macron said to Le Monde of Trump. “She laughs very easily, at everything, but shows it less than I do.”
