The second part of a recent interview between Fox News’ Hannity and Melania Trump has been released. In the footage, the 48-year-old is probed on her opinions of the Me Too movement and her son Barron Trump being in the limelight, as well as the topic of Donald Trump’s controversial plans to build a wall to mark the border between Mexico and the US. In the video, Melania was quizzed about whether she thought the latter topic was the “only answer” to solve border control issues in the country. And, the First Lady went on to insist that she thought that her husband’s wall was “needed”.
“On borders in particular: you did go down to the border and you met with a lot of border patrol guys,” news anchor Sean Hannity, 58, said.
“I’ve been down there 13 times in my 23 years at Fox. Everywhere from the Rio Grande to San Diego, in drug warehouses.
“When you’re down there and you see with your own eyes what’s going on, is the wall in your head the only answer?”
Nodding her head, Melania replied: “I think we need the wall to protect the country. For security. To protect it from the drugs.
“Of course, we know we will always have people coming over, but this is one solution that we could stop big caravans coming over.”
She continued: “I was in the border and saw first hand and met with border patrol and I see what they do 24/7, and their hands are full.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Melania discussed the moment she first met Donald Trump, 72.
The couple met in 1998 in New York, and went on to date one another.
The businesswoman and former model later married in 2005, and welcomed their first son together, Barron Trump, now 12, the following year.
Recalling their early days together, the mother-of-one said: “We had a great chemistry when we met in 1998 and we started dating and we dated for a long time before we got married and we got married, we had a son but we had a great chemistry from the day one.”
Melania went on to discuss how her life had changed over the years, and how much she’d learnt.
“It’s incredible, especially when you think about your life, where you were born and all the steps you took,” she told the journalist.
“I took a lot of steps, it’s not just like you end up here.
“You learn a lot on the way here and in my business, in fashion business, it’s a tough business as well and here the politics as well, it’s a tough business, and you need to have very thick skin.”
The First Lady read to children during her outing, as she paid a visit to the Children’s National Hospital in Washington DC.
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka last year.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
