Brigitte Macron says Melania Trump is like ‘a prisoner in the White House’.


French first lady Brigitte Macron has said Melania Trump is hiding a strong personality and has become 'a virtual prisoner in her own home'. 

Mrs Macron heaped praise on her ‘fun’ and ‘intelligent’ American counterpart after her three-day visit to Washington.

She said:
 ‘Melania can’t do anything, she can’t even open a window at the White House because immediately the security services call and say “close it”. ‘She can’t go outside. Every day, I go out in Paris,’ 

she said in an interview during the final day of the Macrons’ US trip. It is the second time she and Mrs Trump, who she described ‘kind, charming, intelligent,’ have met.

The pair spent time together when the Trumps visited Paris in July. 

Melania is reportedly very different in private to in public, where the 48-year-old former model from Slovenia displays little emotion during appearances with her husband. 

On the contrary she is really fun,’ Mrs Macron said. ‘We have the same sense of humour, we laugh a lot together

Everything is interpreted, over-interpreted. She’s someone who has a strong personality but she makes an effort to hide it. She laughs very easily at everything, but she shows it less than I do.’

Macron’s wife, his former drama teacher from high school who is 25 years older than him, said she was still adjusting to the constraints of life as France’s first lady, but said she is still able to find moments of freedom.

Brigitte also played down her role as a fashion icon, with each of her outfits widely commented on during her trips abroad. 

As for her public responsibilities, she said she did her best not to be a ‘vase of flowers’ in the background of her husband, and joked about the choreography of the US state visit. 

This often involved following stickers on the floor during the ceremonies. ‘Can it be any other way? I don’t know,’ she said.
