Melania Trump says president is 'doing an incredible job'

On Wednesday night, Hannity aired an interview with Melania Trump from the USSGeorge H.W. Bush in which she spoke about everything from her childhood in Slovenia to being the first lady. She also revealed why, despite a tumultuous first couple of years, she hopes for a second term in the White House.

“I think my husband, he’s doing an incredible job,” FLOTUS said. “The country does best ever, so … I want the country [to] continue to do well.”

 

She went on to call journalists, authors and comedians “opportunists” who aren’t telling the truth and who use her and her family’s name to spread gossip and “advance themselves.”
