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