"The East Wing definitely has some independence, but not this kind of independence," an Obama White House official recently told CNN of the Trumps' differing philosophies. "It hasn't before been as though there's a completely different view of the world from one side than the other."

President Donald Trump became famous in large part due to his love of the spotlight; Melania, on the other hand, is seldom interviewed and still rarely speaks in public.

Japan's first all-female police squad will protect Melania, Ivanka on Trump Asia trip

  Japan's first all-female police squad will protect Melania, Ivanka on Trump Asia trip Japan's first all-female police squad will have its debut assignment this week, protecting first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump during President Trump's trip to Asia.Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department reportedly put the team together in anticipation of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo in order to address gender-based crime, Newsweek reported. The unit has been training for its first assignment on the city's streets, according to ABC News.

First Lady Melania Trump has spent just two nights in the White House since her husband was sworn in as president two weeks ago, choosing instead to stay at the couple's 0million Trump Tower penthouse while son Barron is in school.

Melania Trump , the first lady of the United States, is a reluctant ascendant to the throne, a very different kind of first lady who, like her husband , has no characterological precedent.

Donald Trump is known for his often-inflammatory rhetoric; most of Melania's first lady initiatives have been quiet solo trips to address bullying and the opiod crisis.

The president loves fast food; Melania eats seven piece of fruit a day.

The first lady's independence from her husband is clear to anyone paying attention to their fashion choices. While Donald Trump has been frequently critiqued for his fashion decisions, such as using Scotch tape to hold his tie in place, Melania Trump is a former model with a closet stuffed with designer clothing.

"Mrs. Trump is independent and acts independently from her husband," Melania Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN after launching her anti-bullying campaign, which many saw as ironic considering Donald Trump's behaviour.

Alec Baldwin Says Melania Trump Is a Fan of 'SNL'

  Alec Baldwin Says Melania Trump Is a Fan of 'SNL' The first lady's director of communications refuted the claims, telling Newsweek in an email: "That is not true, which is why Mr. Baldwin has no actual names to go with his bizarre assertion."A White House official claimed the first lady regularly watches SNL and enjoys the actor’s frequent appearances as a guest star, Baldwin said during a Monday interview on WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show.

However, Melania Trump won't be calling the White House home until one important thing is done, which is making Obama-loving liberals irate. Trump Tower in NYC, where the Trumps currently live (left), Melania Trump in NYC (right). The country is just two months away from Donald Trump being

Melania Trump said she intended to make cyberbullying her cause, but so far she has done nothing on this – not even wrest her husband ’s phone off him to stunt the flow of vitriolic 6am tweets.

In theory, a first lady who operates independently from the president would seem likely to be unpopular among the leader's biggest supporters. However, Melania is beloved by Trump's base and beyond. According to a CNN poll, the first lady has a 48% approval rating, which is high compared to the president's 38%.

A closer examination of Melania's actions -- especially how she presents herself in public -- reveals why the public's support actually makes sense.

While Donald Trump may be rewarded for "telling it like it is," female political spouses who exhibit less-than-polished behaviour don't receive the same applause -- especially from the right.

Michelle Obama was fiercely attacked by conservatives for her casual fashion choices, receiving backlash when she wore shorts on Air Force One. While campaigning, President Trump retweeted an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz, the wife of opponent Ted Cruz, with the caption "the images are worth a thousand words."

Soy sauce older than US on Trump's South Korea menu

  Soy sauce older than US on Trump's South Korea menu A special sauce more than a century older than the United States will be on the menu for Donald Trump at his state banquet in Seoul on Tuesday -- along with a diplomatically tricky prawn. The dinner, at the Blue House compound next to a former royal palace, includes a beef rib dish accompanied by a gravy made with an "exquisite, 360-year-old soy sauce", said a spokesman for Seoul's presidential office.The age implies it was made in 1657, the year the father of the US Declaration of Independence signatory Benjamin Franklin was born.

Recently, but particularly in the last week, leading up to and following her husband ’s inauguration, Melania Trump has been increasingly in the spotlight, and the spotlight has been incredibly sympathetic.

Melania wore her highlighted hair in loose waves around her shoulders; her eyes were rimmed with black kohl eyeliner and she donned nude lipstick. Trump 's wife is known to wearing bright colors, but lately she has been choosing suits in darker shades and patterns.

Donald Trump's supporters don't want him to be married to a woman who looks, dresses, or acts like him -- they want someone who is better-looking and better-dressed, and who takes a very different approach to how she presents herself.

Basically, it's the case of the stereotypical sitcom husband and wife. A schlubby-looking man is able to marry a beautiful woman, and no one bats an eye.

Throughout his campaign, Trump portrayed himself as a man of the people -- the sitcom husband. Melania is the beautiful, polished sitcom wife.

It also helps that the areas where Melania is "independent" from the president essentially just require her to be less aggressive, more apolitical, and more put-together.

For comparison, Republicans' perception of Ivanka Trump has dropped as the first daughter has been increasingly seen as a moderating force who makes an active effort to push forward certain policies. Ivanka's independence at times opposes her father's base; Melania's just makes him look even better.

Donald Trump's bombastic behaviour means that his wife needs to be somewhat removed from his politics if she wants to keep the polished sheen of a first lady that his supporters demand. Melania Trump has managed to toe the line between independence and subservience -- and it's made her the most popular Trump in the White House.
