Here is what Melania Trump, a woman of few words, had to say in South Carolina on Saturday, as her husband took one more improbable step towards securing the Republican nomination for president: “Congratulations to my husband, he was working very hard.”
She spoke these words—the first she has uttered (in public) for the first time in months, according to the New York Daily News—at her husband’s request. “Say something,” he told her.
“Just wanted to say, an amazing place, South Carolina,” she complied. “He loves you, we love you.” She added: “To be going ahead to Nevada, we will see what happens. He will be the best President.”
Trump thanked his family before noting his daughter Ivanka’s pregnancy. “I have a great family, I just really want to thank all of you,” he said. “And Ivanka, we have a hospital ready just in case and South Carolina, we’re going to have a baby and there’s nothing wrong with that. It could be any second. It could even be before I’m finished.”
We’re going to have a baby and there’s nothing wrong with that.
