Melania Trump takes aim at Biden’s leadership and biased media in first post-White House interview

Former first lady Melania Trump elegantly surmised the problems currently facing America, including the “heartbreaking” struggle to feed children with the growing baby formula shortage, singling out “leadership, or lack thereof” and the “biased” media covering for it.

“Fox & Friends Weekend” host Pete Hegseth had the distinct honor of sitting down with Trump for her first interview since departing the White House and, ahead of its Sunday premiere, a couple of clips were released Friday night that encapsulate the current state of the union.

“Being out of D.C. and having that time,” Hegseth asked frankly, “what do you make of the state of the country right now?”

“I think it’s sad to see what’s going on if you really look deeply into it,” Trump replied. “I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering, and what is going on around the world as well. So, it’s very sad to see and I hope it changes fast.”

With reports coming in that baby formula is getting shipped to Customs and Border Protection processing centers instead of to store shelves so that American parents can care for their infants, and the numerous personal testimonies that mothers have offered in their constant search to provide for their children, Hegseth broached the concerning development.

“It’s been in the news, as someone who loves children and has dedicated so much to their betterment,” he began, “how do you feel when you see shortage of baby formula and families just struggling to get basic items like that?”

“It’s heartbreaking to see that they are struggling and the food is not available for children in 21st century in United States of America,” she responded, sympathetic to the plight of so many left in the wake of President Joe Biden’s decision making.

When Hegseth asked how this crisis came about, she answered simply, “Leadership.”

“Leadership, or lack thereof?” he suggested.

“Yeah,” Trump confirmed.

Trump was also asked how she felt about getting snubbed by Vogue magazine as compared to Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, and she attributed the behavior to the inherent bias in the media that continues to protect the left.

“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes and it’s so obvious,” she said dismissively. “And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision and I have much more important things to do and I did in the White House than being on the cover of Vogue.”

The former first lady’s indictment of the current administration’s failings is backed by her own record of taking a stand for children and seeking solutions to provide better futures for them. Her philanthropy has continued since leaving the White House and in December 2021 she announced a new initiative to fundraise for her “Be Best initiative” to help foster children.

“I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor,” she explained in a press release, “which embodies my passion for the arts, and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative. Through this new technology-based platform, we will provide children computer science skills, including programming and software development, to thrive after they age out of the foster community.”
