President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump held a private meeting at the Trump International Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Tuesday.
The president and first lady spoke for about 45 minutes, with the president saying he and Melania “have had a great relationship over the years.”
Trump told reporters at the club that the two parents are very close and have a special bond.
Trump and his daughter Ivanka are close friends and both have been described as “very good parents.”
Trump told reporters that he and his son have had a “great relationship” and that they “have been treated fairly by the press and by the media.”
The president has repeatedly said that Melania Trump was unfairly singled out by the mainstream media during her husband’s campaign and that his wife has been unfairly maligned by other politicians.
On Tuesday, the president was asked if he thinks the media is covering the story unfairly and whether the president believes that there is a special relationship between his wife and the media.
Trump replied that he thinks they are covering it very unfairly.
“She has been treated very unfairly,” Trump said.
“They just keep coming after her and she doesn’t get it, and she’s been very tough on them.
I think that’s very unfair.”
The first lady told reporters she and her husband “do not get it” from the media and “do have a very good relationship.”
The First Lady has repeatedly called for a special prosecutor to look into the death of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died during a confrontation with police last year, and whether police officers should have used deadly force.
Trump has said the media has been “getting all the wrong facts” and “getting a free pass” in its coverage of the Garner case.
The First Family has also repeatedly said it is not the “most transparent administration in history.”
On Tuesday morning, the first lady took questions from reporters and answered several questions about her husband.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
