There is much to be said about the marriage between US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania, but most of it is insulting and defamatory.
The one who hated the President could not believe that someone could love him. Most of them looked at the American First Lady with pitying eyes, treating her as a prisoner of a marriage without love.
"Inside Trump's marriage: Melania's Burdens", "Sad truths", "Dark secrets" are common types of headlines when the media write about the President and his wife. The "Rescue Melania" hashtag even became a trend on social media when they called for her divorce and became a feminist symbol.
However, those who attended the swallow's nest welcomed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at the Rose Garden of the White House on September 20 to tell a completely different story. They affirmed that the affection of the US President and his wife is true, shared and respected with each other.
"It was a really, very emotional marriage," said an Australian official who accompanied Prime Minister Morrison for three days in the United States.

During a press conference on September 20, Trump announced he could bomb Iran at any time, but did not forget to praise his wife for her preparation for the nest. During dinner, when Trump raised a glass with Morrison, he continued to show respect for his wife.
"I would like to express my gratitude to the wonderful First Lady of the United States for this perfect dinner. Thank you very much. You have worked hard for this event, it was really great, thank you, dear. ", Trump said.
When dinner ended at about 23:00, Trump said goodbye to the last guests and thought that no one was watching, but the people lagging behind caught a glimpse of a natural intimate moment: the husband and the wife hugged. Tightly, he whispered into her ear and she tilted her head to smile. It is the familiar scene of any couple who has just successfully organized a social event.
"It was the most magical, magnificent night created by Mrs. Trump's imagination," Prime Minister Morrison said, admitting he was moved to tears when the orchestra sent Australia's iconic post. Australian golfer Greg Norman, who sat next to Mrs. Trump, declared on Instagram that it was "the best event I have ever attended".
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that it was one of the best formal ceremonies he attended. This is a high rating from the 96-year-old politician who served many generations of US presidents.
Many have mocked Melania's aesthetic since her move to the White House. They even attacked and criticized her red and white decor on Christmas last year. However, according to author Jennifer Pickens, the First Lady of America is a person with perfect taste. "She monitors every detail, interested in how things will look, smell and feel," Pickens said.
The first lady, who studied architecture briefly at Ljubljana University in her hometown, spent many months elaborately planning every detail of the bird's nest, including menus, decorations, and seating. and hospitality. She arranged the Rose Garden in a style that blends the backdrop of "Gone With the Wind" and "The Great Gatsby," the tables full of yellow roses, the green and yellow plates, the typical color of Australia. She also prayed it would not rain on the day of the national nest.
According to the New York Post, former first lady Michelle Obama was once hailed as the host of such an event, but the media has dismissed it as Melania. However, a spokesman for Melania said she was still very happy because of the results. Trump also seemed unable to hide his pride for his wife when he repeatedly praised and acted intimate, encouraging her.
