Melania Trump Says ‘Nobody Controls’ Her Political Views

April 27, 2016

She says her opinions are her own—and that no one should know what they are

Melania Trump often accompanies her husband Donald Trump on the campaign trail, but in a recent GQ profile, she says that doesn’t necessarily mean she sees eye-to-eye with him on everything.

“Nobody controls me,” she said, pointing out that, “I chose not to go into politics and policy. Those policies are my husband’s job.” She admits to providing Trump with advice but says that “nobody knows and nobody will ever know” what she says to him. “Because that’s between me and my husband.”
