In a recent interview with Fox News, former First Lady Melania Trump expressed her support for her husband’s campaign and said she looks forward to helping restore “hope for the future” if her husband is elected president in 2024.
In discussing her plans for a second chance to serve as first lady, Mrs. Trump said she would continue prioritizing initiatives aimed at the development and well-being of children, ensuring they have the resources and support “to reach their full potential.”
Mrs. Trump lauded the successes of her husband’s first term in office and said she believes Trump will be able to return America’s “greatness and prosperity.”
Melania Trump, who has kept a very low profile since Trump announced his presidential bid last November, assured Fox News that his campaign has her support, adding that she and her husband are looking forward to the opportunity to restore hope in the future while leading the country “with love and strength.”
Since leaving Washington in January 2021, Melania has continued her “Be Best” initiative that she began as First Lady. On Saturday, she hosted a private luncheon to mark the initiative’s fifth anniversary.
After returning to Mar-a-Lago, Mrs. Trump founded the “Be Best” initiative “Fostering the Future” which provides computer science scholarships to children raised in the foster system. She told Fox that her commitment to the foster care community has grown since she left the White House, and she hopes to bring a larger focus to children in foster care if she returns in 2025.
Mrs. Trump told Fox that if Trump is elected in 2024, as first lady, her priority would be on the development and well-being of children. She said she would focus on creating a nurturing and safe space for America’s children to “learn, grow, and thrive.” She added that if any additional problems children face do arise, she will “take the time to study them” to “understand their root causes.”
