Donald Trump says wife Melania would not cry 'her eyes out' if he was involved in a tragedy
Trump had been referring to Rep. Steve Scalise who had been wounded in a mass shooting in 2017 and had said, "[Scalise's spouse] cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day... I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn't."
While speaking at a Republican fundraiser on Tuesday, October 29, POTUS Donald Trump shared that First Lady Melania Trump would not be overcome by grief if he was in a tragedy.
Trump had been referring to Rep. Steve Scalise who had been wounded in a mass shooting in 2017 and had said, "[Scalise's spouse] cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day… I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn't," according to a report by Politico.
The 73-year-old Trump had made the comment while speaking for an hour at a fundraiser for Take Back the House 2020. Trump had been described as "unscripted, unfiltered and totally in his element" at the speech.
He had discussed GOP lawmakers at the dinner and a mix of business and politics which has raised ethics concerns for the duration of his presidency.
The fundraiser was attended by around 15 House Republicans and was expected to raise much more than $13 million. According to North Carolina Rep. Patrick McHenry, Trump had "the best name". McHenry had said, "If I had that name, I would have been president 10 years ago."
There has been a lot of curiosity about Trump's marriage — when he tried and failed to hold Melania's hand in front of the press or when other women accused him of infidelity. In March, People had reported that a witness saw the Trumps having a disagreement while they were at Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida.
A source shared, "Melania was upset and they had words with each other over something." In an interview last year, Melania revealed that she was not at all bothered by the cheating allegations. She told ABC News, "It is not a concern and focus of mine."
"I'm a mother and a first lady and I have much more important things to think about and to do. I know people like to speculate and the media like to speculate about our marriage. It’s not always pleasant, of course, but I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true or not true."
