President Donald Trump on Friday compared his wife to former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, saying, “We have our own Jackie O, it’s called Melania, Melania T.”
Trump often talks highly of his wife saying she is a strong asset in the White House, and Melania Trump seemed to channel Jackie Kennedy during her husband’s inauguration when she wore a powder blue dress and long gloves.
The president’s comments on his wife came during an extended interview with “Fox & Friends” and were part of a larger discussion about Trump’s plans to repaint Air Force One. When Fox’s Brian Kilmeade cautioned the president, saying that the current style had been “iconic for so long,” Trump replied that the color scheme no longer fit.
“I like the concept of red, white and blue,” Trump said. “It’ll look much better, actually. The baby blue doesn’t fit with us.”

Amanda Knox Returned To Italy For The First Time Since She Was Imprisoned
Amanda Knox returned to Italy for the first time since she was imprisoned and later acquitted in the murder of her British roommate and later acquitted in the murder of her British roommate.
Knox, 31, was invited to speak at a conference organized by the Italy Innocence Project, which works to aid those falsely accused and charged.
On Twitter, Knox said Wednesday she is not doing interviews before her speech in Modena in the hope that her speech “will speak for itself.”
I’ve chosen not to do interviews in the lead up to Italy, in the hopes that what I will say in Modena will speak for itself.
That said, @manunderbridge & I did write this piece for @Medium about what happens when your life becomes someone else’s content.https://t.co/EBBRVr0gOz
