Melania Trump, Donald Trump’s current (and third overall) wife is originally from Slovenia. So you could easily say that she’s an immigrant to the United States. And yet, she told MSNBC this morning that she has no problem with the virulent anti-immigrant things her husband is so fond of saying.
Appearing on “Morning Joe” for an interview with Mika Brzezinski, Mrs. Trump attempted to clarify what her husband is so opposed to in the area of immigration, commenting:
“I don’t feel he insulted the Mexicans. He said ‘illegal immigrants.’ He didn’t talk about everybody. He talked about illegal immigrants. After two weeks, giving him a hard time, and bashing him in the media, they turn[ed] around and said, ‘You know what? He’s right. He’s right what he’s talking about.’ He opened a conversation that nobody did.”
Melania also said she is a credit to her adopted country because she abides by the law and came legally:
“I follow the law. I follow the law the way it’s supposed to be. I never thought to stay here without papers. I had [a] visa, I traveled every few months back to the country, to Slovenia, to stamp the visa. I came back. I applied for the green card. I applied for the citizenship later on after many years of green card. I went by [the] system. I went by the law. And you should do that. You should not just say, ‘Ok, let me stay here, and whatever happens happens.’”
Of course, she also married a filthy rich American real estate developer, which never hurts when you send in your application for citizenship.
The current Mrs. Trump also remarked on her idiot husband’s plan to ban all Muslims from coming into the United States:
“What he said is it would be temporary and not for all the Muslims.”
Not true, as Trump’s own campaign manager has said the Muslim ban would apply to “everybody,” even those seeking tourist visas.
Finally, Mrs. Trump told Brzezinski:
“He wants to protect America. He wants to protect the people of America. That’s very important to him. What’s going on in the world, it’s very dangerous. You have people coming into the country, you don’t know who they are.”
If Donald Trump truly wants to protect the people of America, he would move elsewhere and let us live in peace instead of inflicting his hate speech on all of us.
