Melania Trump on Wednesday blasted so-called "opportunists", like journalists and writers, who she claims are trying to make a name for themselves by using her family. "For me it's very important to show them the President and I and the country, we are behind them", said the First Lady. "She said she keeps up on the news and gives him her honest opinion, adding, "... sometimes, he listens and sometimes he doesn't". "You're very aware of what's going on", Hannity asked the first lady in a sit-down interview Wednesday.

The first lady has said in the past that she's asked the president to tone down the tweeting.

"When preparing for this stop, I learned that this base is more than 100-years-old and has a long history of excellence", said the First Lady. "I do what I think is right".

The sit-down was the second televised interview Trump has granted since her husband's election.

"We had a great chemistry from day one", she said about meeting and dating her future spouse.
