Donald and Melania Trump certainly have an interesting relationship.

After Republican Steve Scalise was shot in 2019, Trump recalled being there for the politician's spouse in the aftermath and how Melania would not have such an emotional reaction if it were him. “[Scalise’s wife’] cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day … I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn’t," Donald said at a private fundraising event days later.

In a secretly recorded conversation from 2018, Melania allegedly doubled down on her support for Donald after the press went after her for staying silent on his controversial ways. “They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough. I don’t do enough….” she reportedly lamented.

In a rare 2018 interview, the mother-of-one made it clear that although she will always back up her spouse, even though she does disagree with him on many of his political stances, such as immigration. "I believe in the policies that my husband put together. Because I believe that we need to be very vigilant who is coming to the country," she noted.
