at the shell that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and groupthink. again, merry christmas. night from washington. ♪ >> sean: welcome to the special edition of hannity and merry christmas. i recently had the honor of traveling with melania trump to two military bases and a navy aircraft carrier where she met our troops, many who will not be with their families this christmas, thanking them for their service this holiday season. later we are going to have highlights. a visit with those brave men and women that protect our freedoms every day. but first, here is my exclusive one-on-one interview with mrs. mrs. trump aboard the uss george h.w. bush. >> sean: madame first lady, thank you so much for doing thi this. you said before you came here and i watched you with all these trips today, you said that this is about our troops, our
families who sacrifice daily for our freedoms, our hearts, our prayers with all of our deployed soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines will not be home for christmas. so you decided to do this trip. tell me more about that. >> mrs. trump: i wanted to come and visit military families and also the servicemen and women. it's very important that we support them. holidays are coming. not many of them, they will be with their families. so for me it's very important to show them that the president and i, and the country, we are behind them. >> sean: you know what's amazing, we are on the uss george h.w. bush, who recently passed away. they put as many as 5,000 people on this ship. i was watching you as you are watching the jets come in and out. if we tipped it over it would be the size of the empire state building.
what did you think when you see this? >> it's incredible. even when i flew over here, you see the ship, it's very small and then you are approaching and it's really big. it was great to meet some of them who serve here. now today there are 3,000 servicemen and women on it. >> sean: right now. >> right now. and i saw the airplanes taking off and landing and it's incredible what they do. >> sean: the cost of freedom is high. we forget sometimes, don't we? >> mrs. trump: correct. >> sean: i watched you as you worked the rope line, as you spoke with the families. it seemed to me that they cling to you and they want to send you messages. what are they saying to you? >> mrs. trump: just be thanking me for the service. what i do for them. and i thank them for their service. i guess i see that we have incredible support out there and
they see what i'm doing and that i'm here for them and to support them. >> sean: let me ask -- i would say -- i told a lot of people is going to be interviewing you. there is a curiosity about you. i don't know how you take that. but i think a lot of people know your husband is so outspoken and you've been behind the scenes, but you're making it out more. you want on your trip, nigeria, ghana, malawi. >> mrs. trump: i went to the four countries. i started with donna and malawi, kenya and egypt. i did a five day trip in africa on aldo's four countries. it was an amazing trip and they were very happy i came there and i worked with the u.s. aid so we are helping them to become self-reliant. >> sean: i noticed in interviews one of the things you often say, first do to find
yourself in the abc interview, i thought it was a really interesting question as a mom, a wife, as the first lady of the united states, as a friend, and then you talked about your confident, you're very focused and you used the term "stay true to myself," you use that term a lot. i want you to expand on that. what does that mean -- and i will ask you about your roots a little bit but that stuck out to me. >> mrs. trump: i do what i think is right. i know i will get the criticism from the public or from the media but i will do what is right and what i feel is right for the country and for the people. and that's what i say, i want to stay true to myself and listen to myself and what to do and what is right and what is wrong. and live a meaningful life every day. >> sean: you talked about this is temporary. you see that it's temporary.
would you want to stay for a second term? >> mrs. trump: i think my husband, he's doing an incredible job. the country does best ever, so yes, i think i want the country to continue to do well. >> sean: you come from a small town in slovenia. and i don't think you've talked a lot publicly about your journey from that small town to paris, to all these major cities from there to new york city. tell us about that journey. were your parents with you when you were a model and alone? >> mrs. trump: after my studies i went to the modeling business. i lived in paris and in 1996 and moved to new york. and then my career, i loved it and i stayed in new york and here we are today.
>> sean: it's interesting because you are not traveling but you end up in the biggest city and you told a story about how you met the president. when did you know that he was the one? was there a moment? >> mrs. trump: we had a great chemistry when we met in 1998 and we start dating and we dated for a long time before we got married and we got married and had a son. but we had a great chemistry from the day one. >> sean: is there a moment that you realized wow, small town slovenia, now i'm the first lady of the united states and i'm living in the white house. it was there a moment that you realize this is real? >> mrs. trump: it's incredible. especially when you think about your life, where you were born and all the steps you took. i took a lot of steps. it's not just like you end up here. you learn a lot on the way here
and in my business, in the fashion business it's a tough business as well. and here the politics is as well. it's a tough business. and you need to have very thick skin. >> sean: what's been the hardest for you since you've become first lady? what's been the hardest thing you've had to deal with? >> mrs. trump: i would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers. >> sean: does it hurt? >> mrs. trump: it doesn't hurt. the problem is they are writing history and it's not correct. >> sean: especially when the speculation about you and your family and your marriage. you've addressed that in past interviews. >> mrs. trump: i did. they like to focus on the gossip
and i would like that they focus on the substance and what we do, not just about nonsense. >> sean: you said if he ran you knew he would win. how did you know? >> mrs. trump: i told him if he runs because i knew him, i knew how he connects with the people. he builds an incredible business in his mind, he's into the business and to make america great and successful. so i saw how he connects to the people so that's why i said you know if you run you will win and it's a possibility. >> sean: i know people want to know this. do you often weigh in on the issues of the day with the president? i know you do watch a lot of news. you're very aware of what's going on. what you think in terms of -- what kind of insight can you give us may be a better way to ask it. as to how when you feel strongly about something that you would
relay that to him? >> mrs. trump: i wish to have time to watch more news, but i don't. >> sean: i hope you watch "hannity." >> mrs. trump: with my office and traveling and doing my work i watch you and i sometimes also tape the shows and if i have the time i watch it. but i know exactly what's going on. i follow what's going on and i give my husband advice and my honest opinion. and sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't. >> sean: if i look at the two of you and i know the two of you pretty well and i've known him for a very long time. i don't think there could be two different styles. he fights, he's combative, you have discussed the issues of tweeting and social media and you've even said you've asked them to tone it down a little bit. how does that go over? >> mrs. trump: we could see it it. >> sean: meaning it's not working. okay. >> mrs. trump: i don't agree with his tone sometimes and i
tell him that. so as i said before sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn't. >> sean: sometimes he was going to say something -- >> mrs. trump: i said to him i don't think you need to read that out but in the end it's his decision. he knows the consequences. he's an adult, but he's a fighter. he's the fighter. >> sean: it's interesting. you saw the exchange i assume yesterday with him and chuck schumer and nancy pelosi. and i gave my commentary on it. i said that's what america elected. somebody that fights hard for promises. what would you want america to know about him behind the scenes that maybe they don't see or know? that maybe the media would never portray about him. >> mrs. trump: that he's fighting for america and the american people every day. every day. he wants to govern the right way and sometimes it's tough because he could see the media wants to bash and focus on negativity.
>> sean: let's talk about the media. there's been a lot of controversy, he says it's fake news. or some of its fake news. do you agree? >> mrs. trump: some of it. some of it is fake news. i would say don't believe everything you hear and what you read. not all of it, but some of it is fake news. >> sean: even your young son has been brought into this at times. that would make me angry. does that make you angry? >> mrs. trump: it does make me angry because children should be off-limits. and i protect him and i want to give him normal life as possible. this is not normal life but i like to protect him and give him the childhood that he deserves. >> sean: do you feel it's working out as best he can? i've met him. he seems like a young, very respectful happy kid. >> mrs. trump: he's very happy, he's strong. he's tough. he's enjoying life in washington. >> sean: who is he more alike, the outward fighter donald or his mom?
>> mrs. trump: he has both qualities. he's a fighter. he has a soft beautiful heart but he's a fighter too and he's very strong. >> sean: do you find with all the issues that your husband deals with foreign policy, russia, china, little rocket man, to use this term, all the issues with employment, regulation, energy, borders, the wall, are you mostly in agreement on the big issues that he fights for everyday? >> mrs. trump: with policies some of them i agree, some of them i don't and i give him my opinion, but he is the president. he was elected. >> sean: when all is said and done and you know have taken a more public role, what you want people to know about what issues matter to you the most? i know you have your be best campaign. you've seen the military, you're traveling the world now more than you have. what do you want people to know
about what's important to you? as first lady? >> mrs. trump: might be best initiative is in the early stages and i'm very proud of what i have accomplished so far. and i have -- well-being of children, opioid crisis and social media use. so i traveled the country. i meet with the people, i meet with the parents and i want to shine a spotlight on the organization and programs that support children and want to be the best for them to grow up in responsible adults. >> sean: on borders in particular you did go down to the border and you met with a lot of border patrol guys. i've been down there 13 times in my 23 years at fox. everywhere from the rio grande to san diego, and drug warehouses. when you're down there and you see with your own eyes what's
going on, is the wall, in your head, the only answer? >> mrs. trump: i think we need the wall to protect the country. >> sean: for security? >> mrs. trump: the security. protected from the drugs. of course we know we will always have people coming over but this is one solution that we could stop big caravans coming over. and i was in the border and saw firsthand and met with border patrol and i see what they do 24/7. in their hands are full. >> sean: 's all rocks and bottles being pelted at them and they try to crush the border, the southern border of mexico. he recently spoke out about the #metoo movement. we saw what happened with justice kavanaugh and his confirmation hearing. which to me is so over-the-top, but you also said we take it seriously. listen to women, but then you
talked about due process and the presumption of innocence. do you feel that's missing in this movement? >> mrs. trump: i think we should all be heard. women and men. we need to be heard and we need to be treated equal. >> sean: remember every time before we ever heard from some of the individuals in the justice kavanaugh case hear people say i believe. we hadn't heard from anybody. >> mrs. trump: you can believe until you are proven guilty. you cannot be guilty until you are proven guilty and that's very important that we follow the law. >> sean: i want to talk about your journey a little more because we kind of glossed over it. if you grew up in a small town in slovenia. then you're a model in milan and paris. if you were independent. if you were alone at that time. >> mrs. trump: correct. >> sean: did you grow up wanting to be a model? b-2 i study design and architecture and stopped my
study architecture because i wanted to go in the modeling business and professional career as a model. so i moved to milan and paris. >> sean: how young were you at that time? >> mrs. trump: i started modeling in slovenia first when i was 16. and then went to milan and start from then on. >> sean: were you with your parents? >> mrs. trump: i was alone. >> sean: you grow up fast at a young age. independent. >> mrs. trump: correct. >> sean: as you look back on that and your parents from milan and paris to new york, did that make you the person that says that they are confident, good friend, and true to herself? >> mrs. trump: yes. my journey made me that. >> sean: madame first lady, thank you so much for being with us. we really appreciate it. thank you. >> sean: we're just getting started. coming up next on the special edition of "hannity," the first lady's christmas message to the troops. that's next. ♪
