Donald Trump has said his wife Melania’s mysterious presence is part of her ‘beauty,’ as he opened up to Megyn Kelly about the enigmatic former first lady.

The former president, 77, sat down with Kelly for a SiriusXM interview aired on Thursday that saw him sharing insight into both Melania and his youngest son Barron, 17.

‘I think part of the beauty is that mystery,’ Trump said when asked what people misunderstand about his wife of more than 20 years, before comparing her with Hollywood legend Greta Garbo.

‘She was a great actress, But she was very reclusive, never did an interview. I don’t see Melania as like that, but she’s introspective, and she’s confident… She doesn’t need to be out there [to get interviewed],’ he explained.

‘She has confidence. She has a lot of self confidence.’

Trump also gave an update on Barron, saying the teen is doing ‘really well’ and is a ‘very good athlete.’ 

‘Barron’s very tall – about six eight. And, and he’s a good kid. He’s a good looking kid. He’s a great student, very good student…we’re thinking about [college] right now,’ he added. 

While Trump and Kelly don’t have the most civil history together, the two commiserated about Melania’s exclusion from Vogue magazine.

‘It’s so sad, but she doesn’t care, she’s been on the cover of the magazines for a long time, and she was on the cover of Vogue before,’ Trump claimed.

‘She was actually very friendly with Anna Wintour, but once I ran for politics that was the end of that, and that’s okay.’

Despite his recent indictments, Trump said Melania, who has stayed away from the campaign trail this year, is doing very well, describing the former model as a ‘very strong, even keeled, good woman.’

‘She’s a very calm person, I think that’s what people like about her,’ Trump told Kelly.

When asked about the former first couple’s at-home moments, such as their dinners, Trump replied: ‘Our dinners are nice dinners, our dinners are like people’s dinners…we actually get along very well.’

Melania Trump has rarely been seen in public over the past year.

She has said she supports her husband’s bid for a second term in the White House, but she hasn’t appeared at one of his campaign events in ten months – not since he announced his 2024 bid at Mar-a-Lago on November 15, 2022.

Melania has also not been by Trump’s side at any of his court appearances as he fights multiple legal battles.

It was a productive conversation for Trump and Kelly, who have a notoriously rocky history.

Trump claimed she had ‘blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever’ during the the August 2015 primary debate she moderated. 

But it seems the feud is now water under the bridge as Kelly released Thursday morning clips of her sit-down interview with Trump. 

Kelly had expressed her enthusiasm, assuring viewers that the interview would be nothing short of captivating. 

‘I’m really looking forward to this,’ she said in the video. ‘It’s going to be great, it’s going to be spicy, and it’s going to be tough, but it’s going to be good and hopefully, we’re both going to enjoy it.’ 

Elsewhere in the interview, Trump said that while he thinks Joe Biden is ‘grossly incompetent,’ he does not feel he is too old to be president.

With just three years separating the two 2024 frontrunners, many are concerned over the increasing age of presidential candidates – as well as other leaders in Congress.

Polling shows that more than three-fourths of Americans feel that Biden, 80, is too old to serve another four years in office.

But Trump, 77, told Megyn Kelly in the SiriusXM interview airing on the Triumph Channel that age isn’t the issue.

‘I have many friends that are in their 80s. I have friends… that are in their 90s and they’re sharp as a tack. Just, I mean I would say, just about what they used to be. No, not old. He’s incompetent,’ Trump said of Biden.

If Biden was reelected he would break his own record for being the oldest-ever inaugurated U.S. president at 82 years old.

Trump is the second-oldest president following Biden. He was inaugurated at the age of 70. He beat former President Ronald Reagan by just about a year.

‘Age is interesting, because some people are very sharp and some people do lose it, but you lose it at 40 and 50 also,’ Trump told Kelly. ‘But no, he’s not too old at all. He’s grossly incompetent.

‘You look at some of the great world leaders, they were in their 80s and they did— I mean, Churchill, so many people. They were phenomenal in their 80s. You know, there’s a great wisdom if you’re not in a position like him, but if you go back 25 years, he wasn’t the sharpest tack either.
