“I have a son who’s a very young boy, he just turned 11,” Trump said. “He’ll be taken away from his school and be put into a brand new school. He likes playing on his soccer team in New York, they’re all of his friends, and you know he’ll be taken away from that team. We didn’t want to do it in the middle of a season.”
Trump also pointed out that Melania has been “terribly abused by the press.”
“Really unfairly,” he said. “She’s a high-quality person. She’s been amazing for the country.”
