• Melania Trump is attacked by POTUS' critics for a reason
  • Melania Trump is confident of Donald Trump's leadership
  • Melania Trump focused on being a mother and wife

Donald Trump’s son has revealed why Melania Trump is always attacked by the POTUS’ critics.

The first lady has been subjected to intense backlash from her and Donald Trump’s critics when the latter became the president. Donald’s son Donald Trump Jr. shared his thoughts on why his stepmother has to endure the endless attacks.

In the book “Inside the White House,” Donald Jr. told author Doug Wead that the criticisms against Melania were not meant to hurt her, but it was a way to get to her husband.

“Don Jr. sees the recent attacks on the First Lady as a means to hurt the President,” Wead explained. “It is shades of the old movie plot in which the villain realises that he can’t break the hero so he turns his wrath on the hero’s family.”

Donald Jr. believes that his father is “unbreakable.” Thus, his critics couldn’t easily hurt him, so they have to resort to other means by attacking those people close to him.

“Most of the attacks on her are just to hurt him. Since they can’t break him, they turn their guns on her, someone who is innocent. So maybe he can take it, but does he really want to see her hurt by this too?” Donald Jr. added.

Donald’s son mentioned the various rumors about Melania being captive in the White House and the FLOTUS denouncing her husband, with some showing support and even encouraging the first lady to do it. Donald Jr. stressed that those reports were problematic because Donald and Melania’s marriage is doing good. Ivanka Trump’s brother insisted that the POTUS and FLOTUS have always had a good relationship and since the media couldn’t divide them, they turned to Melania with a vengeance.

Journalist Andrew Cohen had the same premise as Donald Jr. He wrote in an article for Ottawa Citizen that Melania is the “greatest casualty” of Donald’s presidency. He mentioned how Donald’s staff could leave him and how the process is more complicated for Melania because she is married to him.

In related news, Melania’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said that the first lady is strong. Despite the issues plaguing the first family, she remains focused on being a wife to Donald and a mom to their son, Barron.
