Former president Donald J Trump showered praise on his wife while talking about her activities since leaving the White House nearly six months ago. "It's very funny," Trump told Newsmax hosts on Friday, June 25. "She's a very confident person. She was very successful as a model, she was very, very successful. and she is low-key, but not actually low-key, but she's low-key and the people love her. For instance, I'm making a speech in Ohio, where they're going to have big crowds, they already have them lined up. We're going have big crowds tomorrow night, and when I go there, there will be many, many signs. 'We love our first lady, we love our first lady,' and a lot of times they show a picture of a high heel, a shoe with a high heel."

In a lengthy phone interview with Newsmax TV, the 45th POTUS was asked what former First Lady Melania Trump had been up to since leaving Washington DC and settling in South Florida after President Joe Biden was inaugurated in January. Trump subsequently launched a tirade about how the media covered his wife's outfit as they toured the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.

"That's when they scammed us, when she went to a hurricane, and in Texas, and we left for Air Force One, and she feels an obligation to be beautifully dressed representing the people of our country, so she walked into the plane wearing, you know, we're looking great," Trump said, "and then she had a bag and the bag was sneakers and a sweatsuit and all the things, right? And she got hammered for going to a hurricane that way, you know, etc., etc., and the high heels became a big thing, anyway. They love the first lady and the people, and you don't read that, you don't read that and they, the news loves to keep her out, and that's okay, frankly, with her it's absolutely okay. You understand, she's got a lot of confidence, got a lot of confidence."

Trump continued to laud his wife as the hosts attempted to move on to another topic. "She is very outstanding person and the people get it," he said about Melania. "You know she'd do those decorations at Christmastime. She'd do such a job and then get hammered. She did such a beautiful job around the White House, and with the Rose Garden, she rebuilt the Rose Garden, which was actually a much more difficult thing that it sounds and. It's now good for another 50 years, that included all of the wires and all of the everything under the Rose Garden that nobody sees. But it looks like the dashboard of a Boeing 757. It's complicated stuff, and she did a great job."

Trump concluded, "The people get it, and they really like our first lady."
