Brigitte Macron Insists Melania Trump Is Being Held 'Prisoner' in White House, 'Can't Step Foot Outside'.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The First Lady of France Brigitte Macron made the astonishing claim that Melania Trump, the First Lady of America, is effectively a prisoner in the White House.
Brigitte, 65 (who is the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron, 40), spent the past week enjoying the hospitality of 48-year-old Melania and US President Donald Trump, 71, during a state visit to America, Mirror reported.
Joining the Trumps at the White House, Brigitte quickly developed a firm friendship with fellow European Melania - who hails from Slovenia.
However, as she shared details of what life is like inside the White House for the First Lady of America, Brigitte painted a slightly bleak picture.
"She is much more constrained than me. Melania can't do anything," Brigitte told French newspaper Le Monde.
From the sounds of things, Melania can almost barely take a breath without the permission of the White House security services.
"The security is terrible. She can't even open a window at the White House because immediately the security services call and say 'close it'," Brigitte claimed.
"She can't put a foot outside. Every day, I go out in Paris," she added.
Away from describing a life of captivity for Melania for as long as Trump remains in power, Brigitte said the US First Lady hides a brilliant sense of humour.
"She is really fun. We have the same sense of humour. We laugh a lot together," the French First Lady declared.
"She's someone who has a strong personality but she makes an effort to hide it," she stressed.
Melania is far less decisive than her husband Trump and has garnered something of a fan following since her husband was sworn into office last year.
Many have hailed her as a style icon, and others were impressed by the "elegant" State Dinner that she planned for the French President.
