As Donald Trump continues along the political campaign trail, you can at times spot a pretty good looking lady at his side. This former model is Melania Trump, and here are a few well-kept secrets that we have uncovered about the potential next First Lady.
A Permanent Resident
Melania didn’t become a permanent resident of the United States until after her marriage to Donald Trump in 2006.
The former model is more than just someone that is nice to look at. She studied at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia in architecture and design.
She Stays Quiet
For the most part, you won’t find Melania speaking out too much. She is more of an introvert and leaves the talking to her outspoken husband.
Melania does do more than just spend her husband’s riches. She is involved with a variety of charity groups including The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The American Red Cross, and the Police Athletic League.
He Was Taken
When Melania and Donald first met, he was already dating someone else. That seems to be the way his love life goes, though.
How They Met
Before they were Mr. and Mrs., the pair were introduced at a fashion week party in 1998. He asked for her number, but she denied him because he was with someone else. He wouldn’t take no for answer, and gave her every number of his he had.
She has the sole responsibility of decorating the many properties that she and her husband own. The condo located inside of Trump Towers is outfitted in 24-karat gold and marble.
She Knows What He Wants
The beauty allows Mr. Trump to run his campaign the way he wants. She does however speak up when someone debates the issues. When asked about the ban on Muslims, she responded with her knowledge of what Donald meant. She said not all Muslims, just a screening on those that are coming in.
A Smart Business Woman
There’s no question that her husband gave her some tips when she launched her own jewelry line on QVC. Whatever he told her worked and she made a pretty good profit. She’s taken part in plenty other successful ventures along the way as well.
She Stays Involved
Even though you don’t hear too much out of her, Melania says that she knows everything that is happening surrounding Donald’s campaign.
Coming To America
Mrs. Trump didn’t move to the United States until the mid 1990’s. She wasn’t here long before Donald scooped her up. They were married at his mansion in 2005.
She’s Internationally Known
The potential First Lady is no doubt a traveled woman. She lived in Milan, Italy when she was 18. She was frequently spotted in Paris during her early years too.
Money Is No Object
It helps to say that money is no object when you are married to one of the richest people in the country. Melania spent somewhere around $1 million on their wedding.
Only The Best For Her
She wasn’t going to settle for just any old wedding singer. She hired Billy Joel for their nuptials.
Baron Comes First
Even though she supports her husband in his run for President, she remains a dedicated mother to their son Baron, age nine. She said no matter what happens, she will make sure she can be home for him.
The New York Times asked her what kind of First Lady she would be. She stated she would like to be a supportive one like Jackie Kennedy or Betty Ford.
With the many places she has gone, Melania has picked up four different languages. She can speak German, Serbian, French, and English, in addition to her native Slovenian.
Gracing The Cover
Her former job put her on the covers of some pretty well-known magazines. She has spots on Glamour, GQ, Vanity Fair, andVogue.
No Nanny In Her House
She will not allow a nanny to help her in the raising of Baron. She insists on doing it all on her own.
She’s A Fashionista
Melania never goes lightly when it comes to her wardrobe. She is always seen dressed to impress.
Age Doesn’t Matter
At 46-years-old, she is actually closer in age to her husband’s eldest son, Donald Jr., than to Donald Sr. There is just seven years separating them while there is nearly 30 between the happy couple.
She has said in an interview that they are like all married couples. She doesn’t always agree with everything her husband says and the same goes for him.
Not Very Popular
Surprisingly, Mrs. Trump isn’t doing too well in the ratings for potential First Ladies. To find someone that did as bad as she is doing now you would have to go back to, oh who was it? Oh yea, Hillary Clinton.
She’s A Step-Mom
She didn’t just marry the man, he came with four other kids. She knew that Donald had kids from two different women, but it didn’t stop her from going down the aisle.
In the event Mr. Trump is elected president, Melania will be only the second woman to ever hold the First Lady position that wasn’t born in the States. John Quincy’s wife, Louisa Adams was the first.
She Grew Up In A Tower
The tower that she grew up in cannot be compared to the luxurious Trump Towers she is so familiar with today. In Yugoslavia, she was raised in a concrete structure under the rule of the dictator Tito.
She Followed The Rules
Many people criticize Donald on his immigration stance considering his wife is an immigrant. She doesn’t hesitate to correct the haters by reminding them that he is speaking of “illegal immigrants” and she became a citizen following the laws.
A Family Secret
She has a half-brother that was kept a secret. Her father had a son with another woman before marrying her mother.
No More Tweets
One thing that she wishes her husband would do is stop tweeting. She thinks he goes a little overboard at times, and she isn’t afraid to tell him.
This is the only wife of a potential president that grew up in a Communist nation. Her father was a member of the Slovenian Communist Party.
Donald’s opponent Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton attended their wedding among the rest of the 350 person guest list. Funny how things change so quickly.
She’s Not Shy
During an interview with Howard Stern, things took a turn. When he asked her what she was wearing she simply stated, “Not much.”
She Was A Model
Okay, so this really isn’t a secret, but still an interesting topic surrounding Melania. It really is no surprise that Donald married her considering his laundry list of model girlfriends.
She Started Working At 5
Something that Donald is no doubt attracted to is her work ethic. She got her first modeling gig at age five, and by 16 she was a familiar face in many professional commercial spots.
She Posed Nude
Before she met the Republican Presidential candidate, she posed nude for a men’s magazine. It’s safe to say she’s the only potential First Lady that’s ever done that.
