Melania Trump, the Slovenian model and third wife of President-elect Donald Trump, knew how the presidential election was going end. She correctly predicted, before he even announced his candidacy, that her husband would become the next president of the United States.

Trump discussed the conversation he had with Melania before deciding to run for president in an interview with the Washington Post in April 2016.
“She said, ‘We have such a great life. Why do you want to do this?'” Trump said. “I said, I sort of have to do it, I think. I really have to do it.”
Melania didn’t want her husband to run, but not for the reason you might expect. She reportedly told him: “I hope you don’t do it, but if you run, you’ll win.”
“And almost from the day we announced we’ve been in first place,” Trump said while introducing his wife at a June 2016 rally in Iowa. “So here’s my best pollster.”
For the most part, Melania kept a low profile during the campaign, rarely making headlines expect after reporters discovered that her speech at the Republican convention in July was nearly identical to a speech First Lady Michelle Obama had given years earlier.
