Why Melania Trump Unfairly rejected by some charitable foundations

Melania Trump, the First Lady of the United States, married Donald Trump  in 2005. Just over ten years later, the former model became the First Lady of the United States when her husband was elected the 45th President of America. The Slovenian-American fashionista’s life changed overnight as she moved into the White House and instantly became one of the most famous women in the world.

Since being made the President, Trump has become infamous for his controversial opinions and decisions in the White House, which have subsequently affected his wife’s role as First Lady.

In ABC’s documentary “Being Melania: The First Lady”, Melania revealed how she has been unable to partner up with certain organisations because of her husband’s politics.

When asked what the most surprising thing about being First Lady is, Melania replied: “It’s sad to see that organisations and foundations that I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration.”

She added: “I feel they are choosing the politics over helping others.”

When asked whether she would reveal which organisation and foundations she was speaking of, Melania simply explained that she “would not talk about it”, before adding “they know who they are”. 

Since becoming First Lady, one of Melania’s biggest campaigns has been “Be Best”, a charity focused on combating online bullying within children. 

The campaign was hit with criticism shortly after launching as many accused her husband President Trump of being an online bully himself. 

Speaking of the criticism the campaign received and her husband’s online controversial presence, Melania explained: “I don’t agree always with what he posts, but his action is his action, and I tell him that.” 

She went on to add: “I know I will be hit with criticism for speaking about cyberbullying, but it will not stop me from doing what is right.”
