Melania Trump is exiting the White House with the lowest favorability rating of her tenure while defending her renovations.
The first lady stepped forward to defend her controversial renovations in the White House while leaving with the lowest favorability rating when compared to her predecessors. While Melania scored an all-time low of 47%, Michelle Obama left with 69%, while Laura Bush had 67%.
Meanwhile, insiders confirmed how the ratings came at a time when Melania Trump opted to snub her successor Jill Biden from a residential tour of the White House’s Family Wing. In the same way, she also took the time out to defend her controversial renovations in the White House, which many perceived as unnecessary.
Melania Trump is all packed up and ready to depart on Wednesday, with 47% tenure approval. However, Melania’s approval rating is much higher than that of her husband, President Donald Trump. He ranked with a shocking 33%. Therefore, that means only 33% of the population approve of his job as president of the US.
Usually, critics explain how First Ladies tend to have higher greater poll numbers when compared to their husbands. And that is partly related to the fact that their roles have less to do with politics.
With that said, you can’t ignore the fact that Melania Trump took a more backseat role as the first lady of the US when compared to her predecessors. Moreover, she even spent most of her final days, out of sight, in the White House. Inside sources confirmed how she was ‘busy’ packing up for the family’s transfer to Florida. Hence, the next chapter of her life seemed to be more of a priority for her.
Unlike her husband’s Twitter account, Melania’s @FLOTUS account is active. And that’s where the first lady recently posted a message that marked Martin Luther King Day.
As she leaves, Melania also defends all of the renovations that went on, under her supervision at the White House.
This includes a bowling alley, tennis pavilion, and Rose Garden.All of these premises underwent redesigning with her firm nod of approval. The fact that she posted images of renovation when the nation battled the deadly pandemic made so many citizens furious.
Therefore, it wasn’t often to find the first lady as the center of great criticism.
