Has Melania Trump change since becoming First Lady? Voice more ‘diligent’ and ‘controlled’

Melania Trump has been the US First Lady since Donald Trump, 73, was inaugurated in 2017. During this time, she has supported her husband and will step out with him at political events. Formally a model, Melania has taken on her new role and has sometimes made speeches about issues important to her. Has she changed since becoming First Lady?

She speaks at a controlled, diligent pace and sticks to the plan.

Since entering the White House, Melania has backed a number of causes in her political role and spoken out about these at events.

Reviewing Melania’s speeches from the beginning of Donald’s presidency until now, James Bryce CEO of gweek, the category leader of Speech Intelligence, explained she has stuck with some of the same tactics.

He told Express.co.uk: “There is very little change between different clips – which in itself suggests that she has persisted with a rehearsed and scripted approach.”

Because of this, listeners have not been able to get a sense of Melania in her speeches as she appeared to favour rehearsed speeches.

“With this approach, she’ll find it difficult to inject her full personality into her delivery, due to her reliance on a tele-prompter,” James added.

“Her audience can only get a small sense of who she is, but not a full grip.”

Despite this, the former model does seem to have had some training on delivering speeches which could show her commitment to her important political role.

”I would suggest that Melania has had some training to allow her to deal with high-pressure situations,” James said.

“For instance, she speaks at a controlled, diligent pace and sticks to the plan – leaving little room for error in her delivery.

“It would be interesting to see how she fares without a script or teleprompter for support.”

Although Melania could give more of her personality by ditching the script, sticking to rehearsed speeches shows her commitment to getting her message across.

When she appears out, Melania usually wears chic looks and and recently wore a designer dress when out without her husband.

Melania wore a classy black Prada dress and a pair of stiletto high heels to open the New York Stock Exchange. 

The dress had a high neck and short cap sleeves with similar items on sale for £2,000.

The First Lady joined Donald Trump at a UN Assembly which took place in New York.

She wore a light cream Gucci coat which is on sale for an eye-watering £2,000.

Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.

This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.


After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.

She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka last year.


Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.

Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.


Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.

She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.


On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.

There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
