Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (00:01)
That’s fine. Who supports Melania? You do have a legacy.

Melania Trump: (00:07)
Well, it doesn’t come directly from my … Yeah, what I put on Twitter, it came from me. They know about the children and they talked about it.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (00:18)
But I’m just saying … you know what I’m saying. Like, you know what I’m saying, right? I mean, you do know what I’m saying. You shouldn’t have people across the world … in New York, it was always Melania, Melania, Melania.

Melania Trump: (00:35)
I don’t give a f***.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (00:36)
It’s not about giving a f***.

Melania Trump: (00:39)
It’s true, it’s true. Honestly, it’s like because … It’s honestly, I’m doing the same stuff that I did before. They cannot stand him. They know that I’m with him. They know that I’m-

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (00:54)
But they felt badly for you before. Now … you know what I’m saying?

Melania Trump: (00:57)
Correct, correct.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (00:57)
Right.

Melania Trump: (00:59)
Okay. All that bullshit stuff, all that stuff came out. They feel bad for me, my polls went up. They said, “Oh my God, she’s amazing. She’s fantastic.” All these kids that I met, they’re here in the shelters because they were brought by it through coyotes. The people who were trafficking.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (01:25)
Oh my God.

Melania Trump: (01:26)
And that’s why they put them in jail. And the kids that they go in shelters. And the way they take care of them. They even said, the kids, they say, “Wow, I will have my own bed. I will sleep on the bed. I will have a cabinet for my clothes.”

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (01:40)
Aww.

Melania Trump: (01:41)
It’s so sad to hear it. But they didn’t have that in their own countries. They sleep on the floor.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (01:50)
There’s nothing.

Melania Trump: (01:51)
There are taking care nicely there. But they’re not with parents. It’s sad. But when they come here alone or with coyotes or illegally, you need to do something.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (02:06)
Right.

Melania Trump: (02:06)
And a lot of moms and kids, they are teached how to do it.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (02:13)
Of course.

Melania Trump: (02:13)
They go over and they say like, “Oh, we will be killed by gang member. It’s so dangerous.” So they’re allowed to stay here. Do you understand what I mean?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (02:26)
I do, and they’re the ones that are the bad ones.

Melania Trump: (02:28)
Yeah and it’s not true that they would … you know what I mean? Some of them, they using that lines. They’re not professional, but they’re teached by other people what to say to come over and to let them go to stay here. Because they could easily stay in Mexico, but they don’t want to stay in Mexico because Mexico doesn’t take care of them the same as America does. They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough. I don’t do enough-

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:05)
Nope, it’s –

Melania Trump: (03:05)
… where I am. I’m working my ass off-

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:11)
I know.

Melania Trump: (03:11)
… on Christmas stuff that you know, who give a f*** about Christmas stuff and the decoration? But I need to do it, right?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:17)
Yeah but-

Melania Trump: (03:17)
Correct?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:19)
100%, you have no choice.

Melania Trump: (03:22)
Okay, and then I do it. And I say that I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, “Oh, what about the children that they were separated?” Give me a f***ing break. Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:36)
I know.

Melania Trump: (03:37)
I cannot go. I was trying to get the kid reunited with the mom. I didn’t have a chance. Needs to go through the process and through the law.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (03:48)
But here’s my thing, here what you just said? But instead of that, your messaging, you were so loved, you were.

Melania Trump: (03:58)
They will not do the story. We put it out. They would not do the story.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (04:04)
Until-

Melania Trump: (04:04)
You would not believe it. They would not do the story. Because they are not-

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (04:10)
No.

Melania Trump: (04:10)
… they would not do the story because they are against us because they’re liberal media. Yeah, if I go to Fox, they will do the story. I don’t want to go to Fox. All the time that he’s the only one for everything. You understand?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (04:26)
I do. So what prompted you to want to buy that jacket?

Melania Trump: (04:29)
I’m driving liberals crazy that’s for sure. And they deserve it. You understand?

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff: (04:40)
I know.

Melania Trump: (04:41)
Everybody’s like, “Oh my God, this is the worst. This is the worst.” After … I mean, come on, they are crazy, okay?
