First Lady Melania Trump's sartorial decisions in Egypt left Twitter in a flurry. "She feels like no other first lady has come under this much scrutiny over their wardrobe, and she feels victimized and even bullied at times".

Melania also offered some supportive words for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"I'm glad Dr. Ford was heard", Trump said of Christine Blasey Ford, one of the accusers. As for Ford, Mrs. Trump declined to venture an opinion but said "we need to help all victims, no matter what kind of abuse" they experienced. "I am against any kind of abuse or violence".
Melania Trump, the wife of US President Donald Trump, was already used to the limelight before she became First Lady.
