Speaking with Fox News's Laura Ingraham during a town hall, Trump fielded a question about whether Melania would be seen more during campaign events ahead of the presidential election this year.

The billionaire tycoon responded to the inquiry, sharing that the ex-model will be "out a lot" with him because she supports his initiatives to improve the country.

"It's funny; she was a very successful model, very, very successful, and yet she was a private person. She's going to be out a lot. Not because she likes doing it, but she likes the results," Trump remarked, per The Hill. "She wants to see this country really succeed. She loves the country."

He also emphasized Melania's love for privacy, citing an example of how she would rather he didn't introduce her during public appearances.

As the campaign for the presidential election continues to heat up, speculation has risen as to who would join Trump on the ballot as his VP, per Greenville News.

In their recent town hall event, Trump revealed a list of potential candidates, which included former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, Florida representative Byron Donalds, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Florida Gov. Ron Desantis, and former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

However, while he described them all as "good" and "solid" people, he singled out Scott for added praise.

"He's been such a great advocate," Trump said of his fellow Republican politician, who dropped out of last year's primary to endorse him.

He added, "I have to say this in a very positive way, Tim Scott. He has been much better for me than he was for himself. I watched his campaign, and he doesn't like talking about himself. But boy does he talk about Trump...I called him, and I said, 'Tim, you're better for me than you were for yourself.'"
