The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Mary Jordan:
I asked for an example of advice she has given her husband, but she demurred. I asked her to tell voters something that might surprise them about her. “I’m compassionate,” she said. “I am kind when people are kind.” I had thought that she might say something like she played the piano. Now I thought how sad it must be to believe others didn’t think she cared. “I love the truth,” she continued. “I’m telling the truth. I like fairness. I don’t like people when they say lies.” She said that she pays attention to details and is a perfectionist.
I asked her what she and her husband did together as a couple for fun. She said they watched movies at home or on their private jet. Her favorites? Gone with the Wind Sunset Boulevard An Affair to Remember. All classic movies about complicated love. (In 2020, as Trump complained that Parasite, a South Korean film, had won the Academy Award for Best Picture, he singled out two movies as great ones: Gone with the Wind and Sunset Boulevard.)
