Donald Trump, may be one of the most entertaining, ball busting ways of no-nonsense politics. He is funny at times, scary at times and above all – is making waves. Donald Trump says it the way many people have felt for years. About debt, about the borders and about the… everything really. Whether you are a fan of Trump or not one this is certain. He says things that American’s have been thinking in the most Blunt manner… Whether right or wrong.
While his views are all about what is best for the US. You have to admit, even if you do not agree, its something we have all thought about. And for those of us on the Republican Fence – really? Don’t you think its time something was done to fix it all? Its not going to be fun, its going to be ugly, and it So needs to happen. We all know it, and we need to stop putting things off.
Although Donald Trump has made quite a show for himself, his current wife, Melania, has mostly kept to the background. We’re taking a closer look at Trump’s right-hand woman. From her childhood, to their first run-in, and to their marriage today. See my own comments to Nick’s Info in **BLUE below**.
She used to be a model
Born in Slovenia, Melania began modeling at the age of five. By 16, she was doing commercials. “I went professional after my studies,” Melania recently told Parenting magazine (via the New York Post). “My mom loved fashion. We loved to travel and go to Italy and Paris.” Melania would go on to pose for some of the most iconic fashion photographers in the business. Including Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino. She also posed for everything from; Sports Illustrated to Vogue.
She met Donald while he was dating someone else. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2016, Melania admitted she met Donald at a Fashion Week party in 1998. And while he was still dating someone else. “He wanted my number, but he was with a date, so of course I didn’t give it to him,” she said. Instead, she wanted his number.
The reason, she wanted to see what kind of digits he’d give her and would determine what to do from there. (Hint: personal numbers = good; business = bad.) To Melania’s surprise, Donald gave her all of his numbers. “The office, Mar-a-Lago, home in New York, everything.” Melania called him after she returned from a photo shoot in the Caribbean. No word on what happened to the other woman, though we’re guessing she’s pretty bitter.
**Maybe so – but Melania has been with Trump for a good while, proving they are compatible. And I like the fact he has a 3rd wife. He’s more of the fix it or move on and make it better direction. Something I can also attest too. I’m sure being married to Trump has it’s many challenges as well.
**He didn’t stick it through for political reasons, not to mention any names. But the Clintons’ are far from in-love. I’m sure they wish they were on their 2nd or 3rd spouse by now. Wow… honesty in a relationship. Thats hardy unheard of among Celebrities and politicians. The point is… Trump is REAL, and not into politics through means or tied to means with his Wife. At least in my opinion.**
She stays out of Donald’s campaign
If you’re wondering why you don’t hear or see much of Melania on the campaign trail, it’s by choice. “I’m choosing not to go political in public because that is my husband’s job. I’m very political in private life, and between me and my husband I know everything that is going on. I follow from A to Z,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. “But I chose not to be on the campaign, I made that choice, I have my own mind, I am my own person and I think my husband likes that about me.” Given her husband’s outrageous viewpoints, she’s probably smart to stay away.
**She could make for a pretty – fashion forward – icon – don’t you think? We haven’t had anyone since Jackie O, wait… Reagan’s wife was classy. But this is taking it back to Jackie Kennedy days – though in our time.
**Can you imagine all the fashion designers getting ready for their hay day with this. Should be very interesting, and I bet agents are fighting already for a play at this. 4 years, 8 years (could be a long time of fashion forward and fashion focus). And I bet she won’t snear at the Queen, or any Princess for that matter. (Thank you again for the embarrassment Obamas… yes Michelle – that was for you).**
Considering Donald Trump is one of the most blunt and outspoken figures in the world, it should come as no surprise that his wife can dish it right back. In fact, Harper’s Bazaar took specific note of Melania’s reported “unflappability.” “I give him my opinions, and sometimes he takes them in, and sometimes he does not,” she told the magazine.
“Do I agree with him all the time? No. I think it is good for a healthy relationship. I am not a ‘yes’ person. No matter who you are married to, you still need to lead your life.” She adds: “I don’t want to change him. And he doesn’t want to change me.” Wait…she doesn’t always agree with Donald Trump? Can she run for president, instead?
**She doesn’t need to run for president, she will be bringing class in. And while she is not expected to be running our country, she won’t be trying to(at least from what I see). Like former First Ladies. Again, not saying any names, but Hillary…. weren’t you in office for 8 years already?**
She’s Trump’s third wife
Anyone who paid attention to the tabloids in the ’80s and ’90s knows that Donald’s marriage to Melania isn’t exactly his first time at the rodeo. In fact, Trump’s previous two marriages were filled with the kind of gossip and scandal that would put the entire Kardashian family to shame. Trump married his first wife, Ivana, in 1977. The couple quickly became one of the most powerful and talked about duos on the New York social scene.
That is, until Trump began a scandalous affair with Marla Maples, catalyzing one of the most high-profile divorces of the end of the century. Trump ultimately married Maples in 1993, about a year after his divorce from Ivana. They lasted for six long and painful years that basically kept the New York Post in business.
She’s barely older than her step-kids. At age 45, Melania is a mere seven years older than Donald’s oldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., who is 38. Awkward, much? She’s not that far off in age from Trump’s other children, either; Eric, Ivanka, and Tiffany are ages 34, 32 an 22, respectively. Melania and Donald have one son together, Barron, whom they welcomed in 2006.
**She should also be healthy, a figure to adorn too… look too… finally someone we can represent with. She is poised, and seems to have no issues with the spotlight, the pressure – or the exposure. Seriously… this is a diplomatic PLUS.**
If Donald and Melania Trump move into the White House, expect them to be drastically different from, say, Ronald and Nancy Reagan—at least when it comes to talking about their personal lives. That assumption is based on a now-infamous interview that the Trumps gave to radio shock-jock Howard Stern in 1999, during which Stern probed the newly minted couple on their sex life.
“We have incredible sex,” Melania boasted via telephone, adding she was calling Stern in barely any clothes at all. Melania went on to say she and Donald have sex “at least once a day” and “sometimes even more.” Well, as they say in the White House, if the Lincoln Bedroom’s rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’.
Their wedding was extravagant
When you’re a real estate mogul worth billions of dollars, there’s no question as to whether your wedding is going to be over-the-top. Such was especially true for Donald and Melania’s January 2005 nuptials at Trump’s resort in Palm Beach, Florida. For the wedding, Melania wore a gown made by John Galliano, which reportedly took 1,000 hours to make, 550 hours of which were dedicated to hand-sewing 1,500 crystal rhinestones and pearls.
If that wasn’t enough, the guest list included everyone from Katie Couric, to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to American Idol judge Simon Cowell, to Billy Joel, who sang “Just the Way You Are.” Ironically, former President and First Lady Bill and Hillary Clinton were also in attendance. A photo of the Trumps and Clintons smiling and laughing at the ceremony went viral at the end of 2015. Both sides were likely very pissed.

Trump on Twitter:
You can find him on Twitter – so have millions of others around the world. We care about this guy, what he is doing, and what he will be doing next. See: Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) | Twitter .
Probably one of the most BOLD presidents (looking to be at the time of this Blog) in our time. And definitely in the age of Social Media. I wonder what it would be like if the Founding Fathers were on Social Media today… wow the things they would be saying. I think we’d be ashamed – and appalled at where things have been allowed to go.
