‘I dis­agree with the Pres­i­dent and I let him know... I have my own voice’

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by MIKE PARKER

ME­LA­NIA Trump claims she wields enor­mous power over her hus­band and the White House.

Amer­ica’s First Lady also said of her mar­riage to Pres­i­dent Trump, “we are fine” and in­sisted she does not “feel like a pris­oner”.

Me­la­nia, 48, opened up in a 60-minute in­ter­view that aired on Fri­day night on the ABC net­work in the US.

She re­vealed her scan­dal-plagued hus­band has apol­o­gised to her but would not go into de­tails.

Me­la­nia also claimed Trump soft­ened his zero-tol­er­ance stance on il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion af­ter she saw the plight of chil­dren sep­a­rated from their par­ents and placed in “hold­ing cages” at the US bor­der with Mex­ico.

She said: “I al­ways let him know when I dis­agree. I told him at home that I felt it was un­ac­cept­able.”Within a few hours, Trump agreed to speed up the pro­cess­ing of chil­dren to re­unite them with their par­ents.

Me­la­nia also said her hus­band fol­lowed her ad­vice on who not to trust in the White House.

Some of those, she de­clared, “don’t work there any more”.
