As the president-elect and first lady-elect sat down for their first interview since the election with “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Lesley Stahl asked Melania if she ever tells her husband when he goes too far.

“Yes, I tell him all the time,” Melania said. “I think he hears me, but he will do what he wants to do on the end. He’s an adult. He knows the consequences. I give him my opinion and he could do whatever he likes with it.”

Trump added, “I’m not a big tweeter. I mean, I don’t do too many, but they hit home. And they have to get a point across.”


Stahl asked Melania if she was intimidated by the responsibilities she will have as first lady.

[dcquiz] “A lot of work needs to be done,” she said. “It’s stuff on your shoulders. And we will take care of it day by day. I will stay true to myself. I’m very strong and tough and confident. And I will listen myself and I will do what is right and what feels to my heart.”

“She will be terrific,” Donald Trump added.

“She is very strong and very confident, but she’s very warm. And I think she’ll have a platform where she’ll really be able to do a lot of good. And that’s what she wants to do.”
