Melania Trump has made great contributions to her step-daughter Ivanka Trump’s growth and improved confidence.
President Donald Trump has two constant ladies in his life, his wife, Melania Trump, and daughter, Ivanka Trump. Many thought that the two most significant women in the POTUS’ life don’t agree, but they actually do.
Melania Trump has contributed to Ivanka’s growth
Melania Trump did not accompany Donald Trump when he was still campaigning for the presidency. Instead, it was Ivanka Trump who was there to support Donald.
Many noticed how Ivanka changed over time. The First Daughter is now more confident with herself and in carrying out her duties.
“Overall, Ivanka seems to be gradually gaining her own confidence in herself and in the new role she finds herself in,” body language expert Bruce Durham of Believingbruce said.
“There is enough evidence to suggest that Melania is actually key to this growth,” he added.
According to Durham, he noticed child behavioral patterns with Ivanka on her journey to adulthood. The First Daughter was mostly on her own and wanted to be the boss, but she checks with her mother-in-law frequently.
“She ‘checks in’ quite frequently with Melania. She uses Melania as her comfort blanket when she is feeling a little outside of her comfort zone,” Durham said.
Melania is confident in her role
Meanwhile, unlike Ivanka Trump, Melania Trump, has always looked confident in her role in the White House. According to Durham, the First Lady has shown the same emotional baseline, body language gestures, and posturing in the past years up to the present.
“She can hold eye contact, there is very little evidence of what is known as ‘self-soothing’,” Durham explained.
Aside from that, the expert also points out the way Melania has always carried herself in public.
“She looks straight ahead, all of her limbs look relaxed, her hands are rarely gripped and she forms no protection over her thoracic area thus she feels no threat as she does not ‘shield’ herself.”
Melania didn’t embrace the First Lady role at the start
Although Melania Trump appeared perfect for her role, she was actually not happy with it. In fact, there were obvious signs of disdain on her part when she was still the new FLOTUS.
“It was clear from the outset, this was not going to be a role Melania was going to embrace,” expert Darren Stanton told Express.
“Over her time in the White House, I have seen Melania openly demonstrate signs of disdain and contempt at times.”
Apparently, her outlook on her role has changed. Melania’s recent photos show that she is genuinely happy with her role.
