Melania Trump teases her second term as first lady in her first interview since leaving the White House


“I think we’ve accomplished a lot in four years under the Trump administration,” Melania Trump told Fox in an interview that aired Sunday morning, adding, “Never say never,” when asked if she could live in the White House again if her husband runs for re-election.

During the interview, Trump discussed what she called her “NFT projects.” The former first lady has designed and offered for sale on her personal website several non-fungible tokens, which are blockchain-authenticated digital collectibles that are often a digital work of art. All of the items Trump is selling can only be purchased through cryptocurrency, and the first batch of items that went on sale earlier this year fell short of the desired monetary threshold of $250,000 for an opening bid.

The most recent NFT, titled “The MetaRose”, is a blue rose that animates. Typically, most modern first ladies create foundations or organizations — usually nonprofits — that further the initiatives they started during their tenure in the White House. Trump again said during the interview that “a portion of the proceeds” from the sale of the NFTs — which are listed at $150 each — will go to support foster children.

CNN has repeatedly asked for clarification on what share of sales will or has been going to charity, and which charities, and has not received a response. Trump has never publicly stated how much money she made from the sale of these digital items, which she has been selling since late last year.

Trump has spoken about her not appearing on the cover of Vogue magazine during her time in the White House, a decades-old tradition that resumed last year when the magazine put first lady Jill Biden on the cover .

“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious,” she explained why the fashion magazine never focused on her when they have other first ladies .

Trump also weighed in on the state of the United States under President Joe Biden, saying, “I think it’s sad to see what’s going on, if you really look closely.”

“I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what’s happening in the world as well. So it’s very sad to see and I hope that changes quickly,” Trump said.
