Trump Surprises Wife Melania With News That She’ll Make ‘Two or Three Speeches’ in Final Weeks
Good Morning America cohost George Stephanopoulos sat down for an exclusive interview with GOP nominee Donald Trump and his wife Melania in the homestretch of the 2016 election. While the husband and wife duo seemed to be on the same page regarding most of their responses — bashing the dishonest media and slamming false sexual abuse allegations, for instance — there was one surprise moment Mrs. Trump did not see coming.
Stephanopoulos asked the potential FLOTUS about the energy and enthusiasm surrounding her husband’s candidacy. “Does it make you want to get out there yourself and help him out in the final two weeks?”
“We will see,” Melania Trump responded. “My priority is my son Barron and I support [my husband] 100% and I’m there for him every time he needs me.”
The Republican candidate himself — who is currently down nationally to his Democratic rival by 5.6 points according to Real Clear Politics — jumped in and surprised his wife with his next response.
“She is actually going to make two or three speeches,” Trump said.
“Oh!” exclaimed Melania Trump.
“Making some news right there!” joked Stephanopoulos in the moment.
Trump continued with the apparently brand new plan that seemed to be invented on the spot, saying, “She’s amazing when she speaks. She is an amazing public speaker. She’s agreed to do two or three speeches, and I think it’s going to be big speeches, important speeches.”
