During a Monday campaign stop for billionaire Donald Trump, his wife Melania took to the stage to address the audience after a rough week for her husband. She didn’t speak for long, but she ended up stunning his critics after what she revealed to the packed auditorium.
As many are aware, Trump has come under serious fire from liberals and conservatives alike, with both groups claiming that he hates women after he made off-colored comments about abortion. In an attempt to clean up his image coming into Tuesday’s primaries in Wisconsin, Trump had his wife Melania speak to the Milwaukee crowd, and she reassured the crowd of what many people already know – her husband isn’t the sexist pig the media is making him out to be.
MailOnline has more on Melania’s speech:
Mrs. Trump appeared on stage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, hours before a Republican primary election that will either slow down the billionaire’s political juggernaut or put him on a glide path to a presidential nomination.
She said her husband is ‘fair’ and ‘no matter who you are – a man or a woman – he treats everyone equal.’
But in Wisconsin, Melania revved up a mid-sized crowd inside the Milwaukee Theater with an observation about her hard-charging husband.
‘As you may know by now,’ she said, ‘when you attack him, he will punch back ten times harder!’
‘He’s a fighter, and if you elect him to be your president, he will fight for you and for our country,’ she said. ‘He will work for you and lead you.
A beaming Mr. Trump stepped aside and listened to her speak, saying after Melania left the stage that he had no idea what she was going to say.
He introduced her as ‘an incredible woman. She’s an incredible mother … She will make an unbelievable first lady.’
Whether or not Melania’s speech was helpful to The Donald remains to be seen. However, recent polling from the American Research Group has Trump leading both Kasich and Cruz by a wide margin.
From April 1 to April 3, the company polled Wisconsin voters and found that Trump leads the pack with 42 percent of the vote, compared to 32 percent and 23 percent for Cruz and Kasich, respectively. Should Trump be able to win in Wisconsin, he would all but have the nomination wrapped up as the contests moved to the Northeast, where Trump holds comfortable leads over his competitors.
