Melania Trump: As first lady she provides her own evaluation of her White House role

When Donald J. Trump (then 71 years old) was sworn in on January 20, 2017, as the 45th president of the United States, the event was witnessed by his third wife, Melania Trump, Marla Mapes, his second wife, and Ivana Trump, his first wife.  All five of the Trump children were likewise in the audience all surnamed Trump: Donald Jr; Ivanka; Eric; Tiffany and Barron.

According to news accounts, the moment he became president, Trump did “break” what was once termed “the traditional mold of a presidential family.”

Records indicate how President Trump is the “only president to be married three times.”

What was earlier known was how, Melania, 49, chose to remain in New York for half-a-year longer to make it possible for theirson, Barron, to complete the school year where his early schooling commenced, long before the move to the White House.

Stephanie Graham, Melania Trump’s spokesperson, announced how her boss would dwell on her “focus” which has been “all along children,” and that launch is meant to formalize what her role will be “for the next three to seven years.”

Observers, although not essentially politically-inclined, chime in about “political marriages.”

The Trumps, they say, “make so little effort to project a more united front.”

Not one published news report indicated how the Trump couple’s photo was described in what would be a likable scenario.

“Some of Melania and Donald Trump’s photographs” had shown how the first lady was “swatting his hand away on a tarmac,” and there were photo captions that indicated how Melania “was caught on camera seeming to resist his outreach.”

What has been called “usual,” for America’s first family has not been seen nor viewed at all.

There hasn’t been any single, solitary candid shot of the president “enjoying an unplanned moment with his wife, nor even with Barron, the first young son in the White House, since John F. Kennedy, Jr.’s photos appeared in America in the early 1960s.”

The Trumps are often seen apart despite their “free time.”

At the well-known choice of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago (Florida) on holidays and almost all weekends, the president “golfs or dines with politicians, business executives, and media personalities on the patio.”

Ms. Trump, it was learned, has hardly been seen at the above-named locations.

The president has been known as prone to organize large rallies: His wife holds meetings with but a few people.

Although Trump himself strongly opposes family-based “chain migration,” his in-laws, parents of Melania, from Slovenia, are also immigrants. Thus, it became common knowledge that they have converted their status into legal residents.

Amidst the supposed rubble that arose in reference to the pre-period of the Trump hegemony discussed in major news circles, i.e., how the president paid funds to silence Stormy Daniels– the first lady has carved out a niche for herself as she launched a platform she named: “Be Best.”

Too, since the Daniels story unfolded most prominently prior to the 2016 presidential election, another publicity-talked about subject was launched by Karen McDougal, a Playboy model. She did not hesitate at all to discuss “alleged affairs with Trump during his marriage to Melania.”

Close to twenty-three years after she initially arrived on the United States’ shores for modeling appointments, it has become a well-known phenomenon that Melania Trump has merged into “one of the most photographed women in the world.”

Paradoxically, just when July 2018 arrived, a message described by scores of viewers on television and the written word, as a most “baffling statement,” surfaced.  It grew out of a $39-jacket dubbed “Zara,” as its trademark.

That same reference keyed on that now ‘famous Melania jacket’ that proclaimed: “I Really Don’t Care, DO U?”

Notably, because the same outfit was worn by the first lady, it has been privy to several meanings.

Once more, Ms.Trump’s spokesperson was quoted as “words that had no hidden message.”

Incidentally, the above-mentioned jacket was what Ms. Trump wore on her way to a detention center of migrant children.

One noted New York Times writer’s comment did indicate: The notion that Mrs. Trump “just threw the Zara jacket, and wore it

is simply unbelievable.”

The consensus arose: Ms. Trump knew as well as anyone that whatever she wore would be “closely scrutinized.”

Additionally, another query came up: “What message was she sending?”

There was an immediate response that emerged from President Trump’s tweet.

The jacket expressed her disdain for the “Fake News Media,” according to Trump himself.

A commentary traced to said: “Whatever her intent, this one little stupid moment in the midst of a humanitarian crisis feels like the apotheosis of the ‘words don’t matter to the presidency.’” 

Therefore, would this space’s writer therefore be inclined not to believe in the White House leadership, and as members who go by the written word coming from such circles, is there a hidden lesson learned?

“When someone tells you who they are, and repeat statements they believe are lies, should we believe in them?”
