Melania Trump sat down for her first one-on-one interview Wednesday morning eight months after her husband Donald first announced he was running for president.
The former model and potential future first lady spoke about everything from the constant attacks on her husband, his polarizing policy points and growing up in Slovenia before coming to America as an immigrant in the interview with Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe.
She also brushed aside those who call her husband everything from a ‘demagogue’ and ‘vulgarian’ to a ‘racist,’ saying that the couple has ‘thick skin’ and attacking her husband’s critics for not giving him enough credit.
‘We have thick skin, and we know that people will judge him and people will call names,’ said Melania, who gave the interview inside her lavish and very golden New York City penthouse.
‘They don’t give him enough credit. From June that he announced, they don’t give him enough credit.’
Mika asked Melania, 45, how she felt about her husband’s stance on building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants and his potential ban on Muslims given the fact that she herself is an immigrant who came to the country from Slovenia.
‘I followed the law,’ said Melania.
‘I never thought to stay here without papers. I had a visa, I traveled every few months back to the country to Slovenia to stamp the visa. I came back, I applied for the green card, I applied for the citizenship later on after many years of green card.
‘So I went by system, I went by the law. And you should do that, you should not just say let me stay here and whatever happens, happens.’
