Donald Trump Wants You To Feel Bad For Melania, Says ‘Her Life Is Not So Easy’

Donald Trump said on Saturday night that first lady Melania Trump’s life is “not so easy.”

In his remarks at a Pennsylvania campaign rally, Trump said that his wife is a “great first lady.”

“Great first lady. She’s great,” he said. “You think her life is so easy, folks? Not so easy.”

He mentioned Melania in the context of her role in his administration’s work to combat the opioid crisis and discussing “blue ribbon” study committees.

“We put Melania and other people on this blue ribbon committee,” he said. “Do you think the drug dealers that kill thousands of people during their lifetime, do you think they care who is on a blue ribbon committee? The only way to solve the drug problem is through toughness. When you catch a drug dealer, you’ve got to put him away for a long time.”

Trump went on to praise the practice of executing drug dealers, and confirmed reports that he had spoken with Singaporean officials about the policy.

The first couple’s relationship has been under national scrutiny for months, following the report that Trump had an extramarital affair with porn star Stormy Daniels soon after he married Melania.

At the Gridiron press dinner last week, Trump joked about the high number of departures from his administration, saying that he wasn’t sure who would leave next: “Miller or Melania.”
