"He will be the best president ever," Melania Trump said of husband Donald Trump
Taking the stage with her husband in her first appearance on the campaign trail, the former model delivered a short and sweet message to the crowd of supporters: “Good evening, isn’t he the best? He will be the best president ever. We love you!”
The 45-year-old Slovenia native has steered clear of the campaign trail until now because, as she told Barbara Walters last week in a wide-ranging 20/20 interview, “We have a 9-year-old son together, Barron, and I’m raising him, and he needs a parent at home.”
After the real estate mogul asked his family to take their seats he invited another, more colorful guest up on stage – a Trump impersonator.
“This is what I call a real supporter,” Trump said, according to The Washington Post. “Wow. Thank you, man. Are you married?” he asked the impersonator, who nodded and pointed out his wife in the crowd.
“Are you happy with your husband?” Trump asked the woman. “She said yes! She fantasizes that he’s really the real Donald Trump!”
The real Donald Trump, meanwhile, has come under fire for telling NBC News that he would “certainly” implement a database system to register and track Muslims in the U.S., while also facing scrutiny for claiming he saw “thousands and thousands” of New Jersey Arabs cheering the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11 – an urban myth police have said never happened.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had “just one word” for Trump on Tuesday: “Basta. Enough is enough,” Clinton said during a Facebook chat sponsored by Telemundo, according to The Washington Post.
“He’s been trafficking in prejudice and paranoia and it’s bad for our politics and it’s bad for our country,” Clinton added.
