WATCH: Melania Trump Tears Into Biden Presidency – ‘Sad to See People Struggling and Suffering’

Former First Lady Melania Trump, in her first interview since exiting the White House, tore into President Biden and said it’s sad to see Americans “struggling and suffering” the way they are under his presidency.

Mrs. Trump spoke with Fox News host Pete Hegseth in an interview that aired Sunday.

She was prompted for her reaction to the ongoing baby formula shortage, the latest in a string of crises that have cropped up during Biden’s first term as President.

“I think it’s sad to see what’s going on if you really look deeply into it,” she said. “I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well.”

“So, it’s very sad to see and I hope it changes fast,” Mrs. Trump said.

Melania Trump Hammers Biden Over Baby Formula Shortage

The United States is currently in the midst of a baby formula shortage, the latest in a long string of supply chain issues under the Biden administration and perhaps the scariest.

The Political Insider’s Kathleen Anderson wrote that the baby formula shortage is a serious crisis and one that “demands immediate attention.”

“I can’t imagine anything more heartbreaking and destructive to a parent’s psyche than feeling like they can’t feed their baby,” Anderson wrote.

When asked her thoughts on the baby formula shortage, Melania Trump pointed the finger squarely at President Biden.

“Leadership,” she said, revealing the culprit.

Biden Administration Can’t Admit to Yet Another Failure of Leadership

CBS News’ Margaret Brennan pressed Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who late last year took two months off for paternity leave with his husband after they adopted twins, explaining that the baby formula shortage has been “going on for months.”

“It’s May, why has it taken so long and why did the president on Friday seem to say it was new information to him?” Brennan asked.

Buttigieg claimed the administration responded to the crisis on “day one.”

Biden on Friday was asked if he should have taken action sooner on the crisis, “before parents got to these shelves and couldn’t find formula.”

“If we’d been better mind readers, I guess we could have, but we moved as quickly as the problem became apparent to us,” he flippantly replied.

The CEO of one major baby formula producer said Friday that the shortages could remain throughout the year.

Murray Kessler, CEO of formula giant Perrigo, told Reuters he expects shortages and heightened demand to last for the “balance of the year.”

Melania Trump, aside from tearing Biden apart over the baby formula shortage, also created quite a bit of buzz on another front – the 2024 election.

When prompted by Hegseth to comment on the White House once again being home to her and the former President, Melania replied, “Never say never.”
