Melania and Donald are often seen and photographed together at New York City society events and receptions.[28][29][30] Television personality Barbara Walters, impressed with Melania's intelligence when she met her, has said of her: "Maybe because she's so pretty, we don't expect her to be as smart as she is."[31]

He loves the American people and he wants to help them."[31] When asked by The New York Times what her role would be if Trump were to become president, Melania replied: “I would be very traditional. Like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy. I would support him.”[6]
