Melania Trump has revealed even she sometimes finds herself begging the president to stop tweeting
The First Lady laughed on Friday as she admitted shes told her husband to put the phone down amid one of his famed rants, Daily Mail reports.
“I dont always agree with what he tweets, and I tell him that,” she said.
“I give my honest opinion and honest advice. Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesnt, but I have my own voice and opinions, and its very important to me I express what I feel.”
When a reporter asked her: “Have you ever told him to put his phone down?” she responded: “Yes”.
The pair have long clashed about how best to use the internet.
While Trump is known for vicious tweets targeted at those who wrong him, Melania has put time and energy into developing a program that hopes to stop cyber bullying, according to Daily Mail.
In a brief five minute press conference, she also told reporters she believes scouts nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford when the pair were in high school is highly qualified, and said: “Im glad Dr Ford was heard”.
She refused to comment when asked if she believed Fords claims.
The first lady was in Egypt on Saturday to wrap up her four-country tour of Africa.
She will visit the Great Sphinx and the pyramids, and had planned to meet Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer ahead of her day sightseeing.
While she is at the iconic landmarks, Melania will be promoting preservation efforts backed by the US.
During her trip, the first ladys focus has been on humanitarian efforts, specifically those funded by US government aid, and those that work to better the lives of children.
Another key purpose of her tour is to promote education, healthcare, some conservation, and tourism, her spokeswoman said earlier.
