Melania Trump sits down for interview with Fox News’ Pete Hegseth

Boldly voicing her opinion on issues ranging from the worsening baby formula supply crisis to the editorial proclivities of Vogue magazine, former first lady Melania Trump recently sat down for an interview with Fox & Friends Weekend slated to premiere on Sunday, as the Washington Examiner reports.

The network began releasing clips of the conversation with Mrs. Trump on Friday, and it is clear from those snippets that she has a lot to say about the direction the country has taken since she and her husband left the White House last January.

“I think it’s sad to see what’s going on if you really look deeply into it. I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well,” Trump said when asked by Fox News personality Pete Hegseth for her assessment of “the state of the country right now.”

Touching on a topic that has had tempers flaring in recent days, Hegseth inquired as to the former first lady’s take on the baby formula shortage gripping the country, “[a]s someone who loves children and has dedicated so much to their betterment.”

“It’s heartbreaking to see that they are struggling and the food is not available for children in [the] 21st century in the United States of America,” Trump said, noting her belief that the root cause of the crisis boils down to “leadership” or, as Hegseth suggested, “lack thereof.”

Hegseth also sought comments from Trump about the constant barrage of criticism to which she was subjected during her time in Washington, a level of scrutiny the current first lady seems to have been spared by sycophantic members of the mainstream media who have done everything to paint her — and fellow Democrats — in a flattering light.

“The media, take Vogue for example – five months into Joe Biden’s presidency, [first lady] Jill Biden’s on the cover. [Vice President] Kamala Harris is on the cover before she’s even sworn in. Hillary Clinton was on the cover when she was first lady. Michelle [Obama] was on the cover three times,” Hegseth began.

“Yet with your business background and your fashion background and your beauty, never on the cover of Vogue. Why the double standard?” Hegseth asked Trump, to which she bluntly replied, “They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it. …I have much more important things to do – and I did in the White House – than being on the cover of Vogue.

Fans and admirers of Mrs. Trump can watch her discussion with Hegseth on Sunday morning, with an “extended version” also set to air on the network’s subscription-based streaming service, Fox Nation starting on Monday.
