Could “Dancing With the Stars” be next for the military heroes who danced with the Trumps on Inauguration Day?

Army Staff Sergeant Jose Medina, 29, of Puerto Rico was thrilled to dance with First Lady Melania Trump at the Salute to Our Armed Services Ball last Friday.

“It was incredible,” Medina told Inside Edition. “Obviously it was a great privilege and honor to get the chance to dance with the First Lady.”

Medina — who served in Iraq and Afghanistan — said he was nervous, but was pleasantly surprised that Melania was equally nervous.

“She was nervous,” Medina said. “I don’t think she was ready for all of that attention.”

When asked what the two discussed, Medina said he complimented Trump and her beautiful family. Melania, who dazzled in an ethereal ivory Hervé Pierre gown, was very gracious, he said.

“She was just saying ‘hi’ to me, congratulating me on being selected,” Medina recalled. “I just told her that she was beautiful and that she had a beautiful family. And she smiled.”

Medina asked Melania if he could twirl her, and she said yes. “So I did it and the crowd went crazy,” he said.

While Medina twirled the First Lady, President Trump danced with Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Campbell.


Campbell told Fox News she was honored to dance with the new commander-in-chief, and wanted to make a good impression. “I was nervous the whole time, trying not to step on the president’s toes,” she laughed.

When asked if President Trump is a good dancer, Campbell replied, “Absolutely!”
