Melania Trump didn’t want to become first lady “come hell or high water,” so says a longtime friend of the Trumps, according to Vanity Fair.
“This isn’t something she wanted and it isn’t something he ever thought he’d win. She didn’t want this come hell or high water,” the friend told the magazine in a new report published Sunday. “I don’t think she thought it was going to happen.”
But Trump was reportedly the person who encouraged her husband to run for president, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone told the magazine
“He always wanted to run. She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying run or do not run,” Stone said. “I don’t think she was ever too crazy about it.”
Stone said that Trump told her husband to “either run or don’t run.”
“She said, ‘It’s not my thing. It’s Donald’s thing,’” Stone said. “And I think she understood he was going to be unhappy if he didn’t run.”
