What kind of a first lady will Melanie be?
She spends most of her time at home, raising the couple’s 10-year-old son, Barron, and sometimes makes appearances with her husband at rallies. On occasion, she introduces him.
Reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy, with her poised and elegant looks.

“I’m very involved in charities now. Many, many charities, involving children, involving many different diseases. And if the time comes, I will choose what is dearest to my heart and work on that hundred percent,” Melania Trump said.
But despite her preference for the sidelines, Mrs. Trump is, like many politicians’ wives, a constant and trusted adviser for her husband.
