Melania Trump never wanted to be first lady and only urged President Trump to run for office out of exasperation at his constantly toying with the idea, Vanity Fair reports. Citing a longtime friend of the Trump family, the report said Melania was always opposed to the idea of occupying the White House.
“This isn’t something she wanted and it isn’t something he ever thought he’d win,” the friend was cited as saying. “She didn’t want this come hell or high water. I don’t think she thought it was going to happen.”
Longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone told the magazine Melania made clear a presidential run was “not her thing” but pushed her husband to run because she knew he was “going to be unhappy if he didn’t.” Read more at Vanity Fair.
