Donald Trump’s marriage to Melania Trump has often been a subject of scrutiny in the media. However, Brigitte Macron, the wife of French President Emanuel Macron, recently offered her perspective on the dynamics between the couple during Trump’s presidency.
In an interview with Paris Match, Macron revealed that she believes Melania Trump is the one calling the shots behind the scenes. She described Melania as “very sweet” but also someone with a strong personality who has the upper hand over her husband. Macron shared an anecdote about how Melania would subtly signal to Trump when it was time to leave a dinner party by tapping on her watch, and he would comply.
Despite being closer to current First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Macron still had kind words for Melania. She described her as “actually really fun” and someone who “laughs very easily, at everything.” However, Macron also expressed sympathy for Melania’s constrained life in Washington, D.C., stating that she couldn’t even open a window at the White House or go outside freely, unlike herself in Paris.
Donald Trump has hinted that Melania has strong opinions about his political theatrics. He admitted that she criticizes his behavior, telling a rally audience in Iowa that she would say, “Darling, I love you so much, but this is not presidential when you do the weightlifting, this is not presidential.” It seems that Melania is a force to be reckoned with, and Trump knows better than to mess around with her.
While Melania’s absence on the campaign trail may have raised some eyebrows, Macron’s insights offer a fascinating glimpse into the dynamics of the Trumps’ marriage. It appears that Melania plays a significant role behind the scenes, exerting influence and making her opinions known.
