Who is Melania?
Melania Trump may be one of the most enigmatic first ladies the country has ever had. She is repeatedly described by journalists as “an intensely private first lady” ( The New York Times). According to Kate Andersen Brower, a chronicler of first ladies, “people are obsessed with her, because we know so little about her [...] She is very self-possessed and I don't think she worries about pleasing people.”
Unlike previous first ladies, she has a small staff, — 10 people, compared with more than 25 for Michelle Obama or Laura Bush — and she publicly opposed her husband on several occasions. For instance, in August, hours after Donald Trump insulted basketball star LeBron James’ intellect on Twitter, she issued a statement to support the athlete’s work with children.
