Melania Trump, Donald Trump’s Slovenia-born wife, broke her months-long silence along the presidential campaign trail Saturday as the Republican front-runner snagged South Carolina.
Following Trump from Iowa and New Hampshire to South Carolina, Melania was seen, but rarely heard at campaign events until the caucus victor invited his third wife to “say something” during the Spartanburg victory rally.
Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, speaks during a primary night victory rally in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
“Just wanted to say, an amazing place, South Carolina,” Melania Trump, said, smiling while briefly speaking Saturday night. “Congratulations to my husband, he was working very hard.”
The 45-year-old fashion designer and model admittedly has shied away from Trump’s boisterous White House run believing it’s his job to talk politics, she told Harper’s Bazaar in the magazine’s February issue.
She jets to and from New York City between campaign rallies to be with their 9-year-old son, Barron.
“He loves you, we love you,” she added at the rally. “To be going ahead to Nevada, we will see what happens. He will be the best President.”

Her remarks mirror her first campaign comments made in November 2015 when the Trump clan rallied in Myrtle Beach.
“Isn’t he the best?” Melania Trump said last year.
“He will be the best President ever,” she added before stepping away from the podium. “We love you.”
