Trump prods reluctant Melania to speak

Donald Trump persuaded wife Melania to address a group of supporters at a lunch in Washington.

Donald Trump and his wife Melania visited a group of supporters at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

"This is a gorgeous room. A total genius must have built this place," the 45th US president remarked.

Mr Trump thanked his wife, who suffered through "fake news" throughout the campaign, he said.

He also invited her, with a bit of insistence, to make a few remarks.
