Melania Trump is backing her husband’s reelection campaign, saying in a brief interview with Fox News Digital that she looks forward to working with former President Donald Trump to “restore hope for the future and lead America with love and strength” during his second term in the White House.

The former First Lady expressed that if she has the “privilege” to serve as first lady again in 2024, she will continue to prioritize initiatives that focus on the well-being and development of children to ensure they have the “support and resources” necessary to reach their “full potential.”

Mrs. Trump also touted her husband’s accomplishments in the Oval Office, describing his first administration as a “tremendous success” and sharing that she’s confident “he can lead us toward greatness and prosperity once again.”

Trump, who announced his 2024 reelection campaign in November, currently leads the Republican field for the GOP presidential nomination.

Mrs. Trump hasn’t made many public statements about her husband’s bid but put speculation she wasn’t interested in supporting her husband to rest, declaring in the interview that “He has my support.”

She added that the pair are “look[ing] forward to restoring hope for the future and leading America with love and strength.”

The former First Lady made her remarks after hosting a luncheon at Mar-a-Lago for foster children to celebrate the fifth anniversary of her “Be Best” initiative launched during her time in the White House.

The initiative focused on the well-being of American children, opioid abuse, and online safety.

She has since expanded the program with the launch of “Fostering the Future,” which aims to grant children aging out of foster care computer science scholarships.
