Melania Trump fights criticism from the public and the media and said she always strives for what she believes to be the right & # 39; to be in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
The first lady sat down with the primetime Fox News host onboard the USS George H.W. Bush after a day of visiting with troops at the Joint Base Langley in Hampton, Virginia.
The cordial interview dealt with a number of different topics, from Melania's impression of the massive boat called H.W., which came to rest last week, about how she deals with criticism of her husband and her family.
Although most of her answers were confident and compiled, Melania withdrew when asked if her husband was pursuing a second term in the Oval Office.
Instead of the simple & # 39; yes & # 39; that would be expected, she answered: & # 39; I think my husband does an incredible job & # 39; and said: & # 39; I want the country to continue to perform well. & # 39;
Hannity turned away from heavier topics that dominated the news cycle, with the most notable being the condemnation of Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer of President Trump earlier that day.
He spoke to the court before being sentenced to three years in prison, and Cohen denounced the president and said, "I felt it was his duty to hide his dirty deeds." – referring to payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

She identified those opportunists as "comedians, journalists, artists and book writers & # 39;
Hannity followed by asking her: & # 39; Does it hurt? & # 39;

She said she wished the media would focus on the content and not on the gossip & # 39 ;.
Hannity also mentioned how Melania has struggled in the past few months to get out of her husband's shadow by staging her Be Best-bullying campaign and making a solo trip to four African countries.
When he asked her for her frequent use of the expression 'true to myself'. to explain, she answered: & # 39; I do what I think is right. I know that I will get the criticism – from the public or the media – but I will do what is right and what I think is good for the country and for the people.
I therefore say that I want to stay true to myself and want to listen to myself and what to do and what is right, what is wrong and live a meaningful life every day. & # 39;
Melania said from her path to where she is now: It is incredible, especially when you think about your life and where you were born, and all the steps you have taken.
& # 39; It is not as if you just end up here, you learn a lot on your way here. In my business and fashion world it is also a difficult business.
& # 39; Here, politics, it's a difficult thing. You must have very thick skin. & # 39;

Melania said she is doing her best to keep up with the news despite her busy schedule.
I follow what is going on, and I give my husband advice and my honest opinion. Sometimes he listens and sometimes he does not, "she said.
I sometimes do not agree with his tone and I say so to him. & # 39;
When she was questioned about what she wanted the media to portray about her husband, Melania replied: "That he fights every day for the American people.
He wants to guide them in the right way and it is difficult because the media sometimes want to bash and focus on negativity. & # 39;
The first lady spoke with love about her direct chemistry with Donald (together with son Barron last month) and told him she was sure that he would win the elections in 2016.
Speaking of her recent visits to the troops, Melania said: "It is very important that we support them. There are holidays and not many of them will be with their families, so it's very important to me to show them that the President and I and the country are behind us. & # 39;
She called the USS George H.W. Bush & # 39; unbelievable & # 39; and praised the 3,000 military members who are currently on board the huge carriage that is as long as the Empire State Building is long.
