President Donald Trump gushed about first lady Melania Trump on Friday while discussing his plans to repaint Air Force One and scrap the color scheme originally chosen by former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

“The baby blue doesn’t fit with us, and people get used to something. And it was Jackie O. and that’s good, but we have our own Jackie O. today. It’s called Melania,” the president said on “Fox & Friends.” “We’ll call it Melania T.”

The president revealed plans a day earlier to give Air Force One a bolder, more patriotic look that includes a new red, white and blue paint job. The plane has been its iconic “luminous ultramarine” blue and white since it was designed in part by Kennedy Onassis in 1962.

“People love [Melania Trump],” the president continued. “She gets no credit from the media, but she gets credit from the people.”

“When I go and speak in front of these big crowds, we have tremendous crowds and so many people are holding up banners, you know, ‘We love our first lady,’” he added. “A lot of them say, ‘We love stilettos,’ ya know, the high heels.”

The president flashed back to August 2017 when Melania Trump accompanied him on a trip to tour the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Harvey. The first lady received widespread criticism for wearing 5-inch black stilettos onto the plane en route to a disaster area, despite changing into sneakers prior to landing in Texas.

“She likes to look elegant in the White House, but she had the sneakers. She’s carrying sneakers for when we get off,” he explained. “But, you know, the people really do love the job the first lady’s done.”

    Glad to see than change, I despise the Kennedy’s. Melania is THE classiest First Lady in the country’s history by far.

      LST, despising the Kennedys doesn’t affect them, it’s hurting you more than them.
      Regarding plane design, I think it’s fine to make a change occasionally…kind of like repainting the rooms in a house you just moved into…putting your own “stamp” on it.
      And really, it’s a PLANE…there are so many more issues at stake than this…
      Personally, I think very highly of the First Lady and President Trump…they are classy, compassionate, and they love this country and her people. Obama and his “pet” were obnoxious, rude and put all their time into showing off, spending money and ruining the country…good riddance to bad rubbish

        Jan, I totally agree with you 1000% !! First Lady Melania Trump is the best First Lady that America has had in my lifetime…..78 years. President Trump is also the best President we’ve had…again…in my lifetime. He is working hard to restore some value to America and its people; plus, he loves the good ole’ USA!!!

    I think it’s fantastic to hear the president compliment and ‘gloat’ about his first lady! He was a young man when Jackie was our first lady and everyone admired our youthful ‘first family’; I’m sure he did too. He can’t help but realize that he’s now the president with his very own, amazing, beautiful, and youthful FLOTUS…. how could he NOT make the comparison of the two most talented, beautiful, classy, gracious, and popular first ladies the USA has ever had.

    “Gloat” is a crappy word to use in this article. In my opinion it sheds a poor light on our president. Many people (including myself) have compared Jackie and Melania and they are both amazing women, but to say he “gloats” is another chance (IMO) to run down our president.
