President Donald Trump recently showered praise upon his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, during an incredibly candid and remarkably honest dialogue with former Arkansas governor and TV host Mike Huckabee.
Trump, who is sometimes known for highlighting his own victories and accomplishments, took time during an interview set to air on Saturday’s premiere episode of Huckabee’s new TBN show titled, “Huckabee,” to discuss the first lady’s positive attributes.
“Does it sometimes bother you that she has fantastic approval ratings that are soaring above anybody else in the entire city of Washington?” Huckabee asked, borrowing a word that Trump frequently uses to discuss various business and political successes.
“She is very popular,” Trump admitted before going on to describe Melania Trump as a wonderful and “very private person.”
“She loved her other life. Her other life was a good life before I decided to do this,” he said. “She’s a private person. She doesn’t need this. She doesn’t need to be adored by people, but she does like to help people.”
