• Melania Trump and Donald Trump have a "very unusual relationship"
  • The POTUS and FLOTUS do not mind the time they are apart and are actually "happy to be separated"
  • The First Lady said that she has a "great relationship" with her husband

Melania Trump and Donald Trump reportedly have a “very unusual” relationship, according to Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Mary Jordan in her new book about the first lady.

The couple has been married for over a decade already and their marriage has been subjected to various speculations. According to Jordan's book, “The Art of Her Deal,” the first couple shares an unconventional relationship. They also do not spend much time together.

However, their time apart doesn’t mean they are not in communication with one another. In fact, Melania is the first person Donald reportedly calls after making a speech.

“[Melania's] the first call he makes after a speech or a rally, because he trusts her – he doesn’t trust many people – and she watches on TV,” Jordan wrote per the Express.

“So they have a very unusual relationship, but there is a bond there: they have a deal, right from the beginning. He loves himself, he loves his job, he’s got his own life and he spends a lot of time apart from her. And she’s absolutely fine with that.”

Jordan asserts that Melania and Trump do not mind being apart and are even “happy to be separated.”

“I don’t know any couple that spends as much time apart. They are often in the same building, but nowhere near each other,” Jordan notes.

“She rarely goes into the West Wing. She doesn’t like to golf. She has her own little spa. She likes to be isolated. She is a loner. He is a loner. They’re perfectly happy to be separated.”

The first lady has spoken about her marriage with Trump in previous interviews. She said she knows that others might find her arrangement with her husband not “normal” but everything is fine for her.

Melania stressed that they have a "great relationship" and added that they are both very independent and are happy. Even if they don’t spend most of the time together, they spend mornings and evenings together to share their experiences.

“I don’t think you need to be with your husband every minute of every day. Both people should do what their passion is and then get together in the mornings and evenings and share and experience life and have a great time. You know that saying, ‘Work hard and play harder?’ That’s what we do,” Melania said.
