    First lady Melania Trump announced Friday that she has selected the director of rooms at Trump International Hotel to serve as White House chief usher. Timothy Harleth presently oversees more than 110 employees at the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., the White House said Friday. "I am so pleased that Timothy will be joining our team," Melania Trump said in a statement. "He was selected because of his impressive work history and management skills. My husband and I know he will be successful in this vital role within the White House." As chief usher, Harleth will oversee the more than...

    Not only do we know President Donald Trump reads GotNews—we now know his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, may have first put the award-winning news site on his radar. In May, the blog Politico editorialized that someone “mischievously” gave President Trump a copy of a GotNews article correctly identifying Katie Walsh as a White House leaker: “That is what happened in late February when someone mischievously gave the president a printed copy of an article from, the website of internet provocateur Charles C. Johnson, which accused deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh of being ‘the source behind a bunch...

    For the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency, his wife Melania has largely kept out of the public eye, so much so that her notable absence from the duties of a modern first lady has prompted speculation regarding both her marriage and her state of mind. As she and Barron make their move to D.C. this summer, many are left wondering what, if anything, we can expect to see change about her position in the Trump administration. Here’s how she may reshape her role—and the White House itself: Melania will probably make a few new hires in the East Wing....

It reminds me, I got another email today when the president and his entourage arrived via helicopter at the tarmac in Tel Aviv to split for Rome, the helicopter doors open and the president was the first out. The email said, “This guy… You know, after yesterday, I would think this guy would know better! He doesn’t let his wife get off first! “He storms out, says, ‘Look at me, look at me,’...

    "There is nothing sarcastic about her style, nothing experimental. It is very true and solid," says the New York-based designer, who has known the current first lady for 11 years. You can count Alice Roi among Melania Trump’s trusted circle of New York friends. The 40-year-old fashion designer has known the current first lady for 11 years, having met through Roi’s husband, Marc Beckman. (snip) The first dress Roi ever designed for Trump?

    Rosie O’Donnell’s obsession with the President and his family borders on downright psychosis. The quarrel between the two originated a decade ago when O’Donnell made unflattering remarks about Trump’s decision to not fire a Miss Universe contestant. Since then, the two have gone back and forth, but O’Donnell was the obvious aggressor and the one who simply could not let the matter rest. When attacking the President did not have her desired outcome, she resulted to attacking his relatives.

    "She's a model who lived with this rich guy, and now she is the first lady of the United States and that’s a whole different ball game," Schwartzman said. "And yes, she looks really uncomfortable." Snow also brought up that a friend of Melania's told Schwartzman that she was happy. "Yeah, I mean, you sort of expect that they’re going say that," Schwartz said. "I was a little surprised that she actually vouched for the quality of the marriage, because, you know, given Mr. Trump’s history, you know, there’s certainly a lot of questions about him and his relationships with...

    First Lady Melania Trump handed out awards at the 2017 International Women of Courage awards ceremony on Wednesday at the U.S. Department of State, where she was introduced as a campaigner for the safety and security of women and girls around the world. “The era of allowing brutality against women and children is over,” Trump said to the large crowd of guests gathered to honor 13 women who faced horrific challenges in their lives but persisted to become activists to help others facing a similar plight. “Each one of these heroic women has an extraordinary story of courage, which should...

    While their husbands may be the ones in the Oval Office, first ladies have plenty of power of their own. In addition to playing hostess at one of the most famous residences in the world, America's first ladies have traditionally used their positions to shape policy, champion causes and help spark real change. Two months into her husband's presidency, though, first lady Melania Trump is signaling her role will be much more subdued. Though the first lady is viewed favorably by 52% of Americans — far higher than her husband's latest approval rating — Mrs. Trump has taken a hands-off...

    The more Americans learn about first lady Melania Trump, the more they like her. Her favorability rating is up 16 points since her husband was sworn-in as President, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday in CNN's COVER/LINE newsletter. About 52% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Melania Trump, an increase from 36% pre-inauguration. In February 2016, the former model's favorable rating was a paltry 24%, her unfavorable was 31% and 23% had never even heard of her. Now, just 3% say they don't know who the first lady is, and her unfavorable rate has held steady at 32%....

    When an 8-year-old from Alabama was asked to dress up as her favorite First Lady of the United States for a school project, she immediately chose the accomplished Melania Trump and didn't just pull it off, she managed to capture the precise image of the First Lady during her husband's historic inauguration. The result was a "mini-Melania" look that is sure to earn this young student a high grade for her class project, as long as her teacher holds back any negative political opinions they have and judges on merit alone. As a call back to the days of Jackie...

    Those who have made a career of trying to drive all vestiges of religion from the public square, from manger scenes at Christmas to mentioning God in the Pledge of Allegiance, were not happy when First Lady Melania Trump recited the Lord’s Prayer at her husband’s rally in Florida. The tolerant left mocked the accent of a woman and an immigrant who speaks five languages. They moaned that it was an affront to those who are not Christian. And they brought out that old canard about the separation of church and state. We have not seen such outrage since former...

    Melania Trump is secretly miserable as first lady, a new report claims. Private, self-conscious, and smarting from some harsh, even mocking press, Melania is “struggling with the realities of her new role and the scrutiny that comes with it,” US Weekly says in its Feb. 27 cover story, citing family sources. “This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s,” a Trump family friend, stylist Phillip Bloch, told the magazine. “Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.” Since Inauguration Day, Melania has spent almost all her time hiding inside the “gilded cage” of the family’s lavish, $100 million Trump Tower penthouse...

    As President Donald Trump searches for ways to cut costs at the White House, he has set his sights on the first lady’s office. Trump is considering reducing the number of jobs in that office, which has grown to up to 20 employees in recent administrations, according to three people with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly about the deliberations. Anita McBride, who served in the last three Republican White Houses, including as chief of staff to former first lady Laura Bush, said any potential cutbacks might be consistent with the limited number of projects...

    Incoming first lady Melania Trump has yet to publicly name her senior White House staff, raising questions about whether the positions have been filled amid uncertainty about the Trump family’s role in the administration. The lack of announcements from the president-elect’s transition team is notable given that Melania Trump is not moving to Washington, D.C., right away and speculation abounds about the role Ivanka Trump will play in her father’s White House. There has been no chief of staff, communications director or social secretary named for the East Wing. And the chief of staff and social secretary positions are particularly...
