The first lady of the United States, Melania Trump, is celebrating her 50th anniversary this Sunday, confined, like many Americans, in the White House due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Melania will celebrate her family birthday at the presidential mansion in Washington D.C., her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told FOX Business television channel.
Born on February 26, 1970 in Novo Mesto (Slovenia), she moved to the United States in 1996 to work as a model and married in 2005 with magnate Donald Trump. A year later she had her son Barron.RELATED
Although she is very careful and reserved with her private life, it is known that she met her husband at a New York Fashion Week party in 1998 and fell in love with him for “his incredible mind, intelligence and great energy” , she explained herself in an interview for the MSNBC channel.
Since arriving at the White House in 2017, Melania has stood out for her discretion and has focused her efforts on the “Be best” initiative, against cyberbullying of minors.
During the pandemic, almost all of her social media messages are covered by recommendations to protect herself from the coronavirus, and she is using these platforms to encourage Americans to practice social distance and send aid to hospitals.
In fact, according to The Washington Post, Melania, the “most private” first lady, has found her voice in the midst of the pandemic, where she is turning her efforts to help citizens.
He has appeared on his Instagram account with a face mask underscoring the recommendations of the country’s health authorities that people cover their mouths and noses to slow down the spread of the virus, and dedicates praise tweets to employees of the grocery stores, power plants and “those who deliver mail and packages.”
And it is that, as the CNN journalist Kate Bennett writes in her book “Free, Melania: The Unauthorized Biography”, that it does not occur to anyone to underestimate her because “she has a powerful influence” on her husband, “both in political matter as in the way he manages his staff. ”
According to this work, the first lady sleeps in a room different from that of her husband and sometimes feels relegated by the preponderant role that Ivanka occupies, as a result of the president’s marriage to his first wife, Ivana.
