First Lady Melania Trump revealed she was “blindsided” by her husband’s administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, which has led to the separation of countless families at the southern border. She also, apparently, can’t stop trolling the media.
“I didn’t know that that policy would come out,” Trump said Friday night during an interview for “Being Melania,” an ABC News Special. “I was blindsided by it. I told him at home, and I said to him that I feel that’s unacceptable, and he felt the same.”
Trump, of course, is an immigrant herself. Born in Slovenia, she came to the United States in the mid-1990s. Before marrying Donald Trump in 2005, and becoming a citizen in 2006, she obtained an EB-1 visa, an extremely rare opportunity for immigrants with “extraordinary abilities.”
What’s particularly notable is that Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became citizens through the very same chain migration policy her husband seems bent on derailing.
FLOTUS Trump’s politics have been confusing, to say the least. At best, she comes across as pointedly oblivious—for example, launching an anti-bullying agenda, while her husband is notorious for cyberbullying.
For feminists, Trump falls into a strange category. Some speculated that Trump was part of, or had the potential to be part of, “resistance” movements from inside the White House. But when Trump revealed that she does, in fact, taunt “left-wing media,” those theories quietly expired.
