President Donald Trump has said that his wife of 14 years, Melania, wouldn’t cry if he got shot in an assassination attempt.
Online medium, Politico, reports that the President spoke in Washington at a dinner for some Republican heavy weight fundraisers.
Together, Trump and Melania are parents to 13-year-old boy, Barron.
“The president made the prediction during a private fundraiser on Tuesday night, where he was pondering the 2017 congressional baseball shooting in which several people were shot, including House minority whip Steve Scalise,” says the medium.
While discussing Scalise’s injuries, Trump noted the way his (Scalise) wife reacted to his injuries.
“She cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day.
“I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn’t,” Politico quotes the President to have said.
In addition to Mr Scalise, several others were hit by bullets during the 2017 shooting in Alexandria, Virginia. The others injured were congressional aide Zack Barth, lobbyist Matt Mika, and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner.
