Melania Trump speaks as Donald Trump asks her during his South Carolina victory speech: Watch the video
Melania TrumpÂ seems to be in news as her husband Donald Trump wins South Carolina primary elections despite pre poll surveys suggesting the fact that he had lost his commanding lead. Notwithstanding the adverse publicity that he received over the last one week, first from President Barack Obama and then from none other than Pope Francis who said that the billionaire businessman was not Christian enough.
It must be noted here that Donald Trump won South Carolina’s Republican presidential primary on Saturday night with a huge margin and the real estate mogul was grinning from ear to ear.
To be true Donald Trumpâ€™s wife is not a regular presence on her husbandâ€™s campaign trail. Despite her not being a public speaker she was able to speak a few sentence very coherently and showed that she can handle sudden invitation from her husband to speak on public forums.
When asked by her husband to speak she said, “I just wanted to say, an amazing place South Carolina”. The former model told the group of supporters, taking the microphone on stage for the first time on an election night with thousands of viewers watching on their televisions at home smiled as she spoke.
In the meantime reports suggest that Melania Trump, 45, has been largely absent from the campaign trail, telling reporters that she wants to ensure the couple’s 9-year-old son Baron has a steady parental presence at home. Instead, the candidate’s older children Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, have taken on larger roles as surrogates on the campaign trail — touting their father’s candidacy on the stump and in TV news interviews.
While speaking on the occasion she said, “Congratulations to my husband, he was working very hard. And he loves you, we love you and we are going ahead to Nevada and we’ll see what happensâ€. Melania Trump has addressed crowds attending her husband’s political rallies in the past, usually taking the stage to offer just a few words of thanks in her Slovenian-accented English.
