‘You need to watch your back’: Melania Trump says there are people in her husband’s White House she doesn’t trust

First lady Melania Trump said in an interview broadcast
Thursday that there have been people in her husband’s White
House whom she doesn’t trust, including some who still work
there.

During the interview with ABC News, conducted during her recent

solo trip to Africa, Trump also asserted that she is one of
the most bullied people in the world, as she discusses her
child-welfare initiative, Be Best, which includes a focus on
combating cyberbullying.

Trump was asked by ABC’s Tom Llamas if the president has had
people working for him that she didn’t trust.

“Yes,” she replied, adding that she has let her husband know.

“Some people, they don’t work there anymore,” Trump said.

Asked if there are still people in the administration she can’t
trust, Trump said yes.

“It’s harder to govern,” the first lady said. “You always need
to watch your back.”

Her comments come in the wake of an anonymous op-ed in the New
York Times last month claiming there is a “resistance” within
the Trump administration. The Times said the piece was written
by a senior administration official, whose identity still has
not become public.

During the interview, Llamas also asked Trump if she has the
most control over her husband’s decisions of those in the White
House.

“Oh, I wish,” she said, laughing.

“I give him my honest advice and honest opinions, and then he
does what he wants to do,” Trump said.

During the interview, Trump also said, “I could say I’m the
most bullied person on the world.”

Pressed on that assertion, she added: “One of them, if you’re
really see what people are saying about me.”
