During a Friday interview, President Trump compared First Lady Melania to former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
As Trump touted the new paint job for Air Force One, he stated, “I think it’s gonna look much better, actually, the baby blue doesn’t fit with us,” adding, “It was Jackie O, and that was good, but we have our own Jackie O.”
“It’s called ‘Melania,'” Trump said of the plane, “Melania T.'”

Trump’s remarks outraged his left-leaning detractors, however, his supporters loved the comparison, and took to social media to reply.
I’m sorry, but Melania Trump is better than Jackie O. Don’t @ me.

Except @Flotus was not raised wealthy like Jackie O, with finishing schools. Melania had to struggle & learn things on her own. This makes her more ‘normal because she had to make her own way without nannies, butlers & connections. First Lady MT has done an impressive job!

And he is correct! Your hate for the president is showing on many of these comments. She is smart, caring and beautiful! ❤️🇺🇸❤️

Actually…@FLOTUS was financially sound in her own right prior to marriage, so extra kudos for her business sense.
