She took months before moving to Washington from the Trump Tower penthouse she shared with her husband.

The self-proclaimed "first Trump lady" is not letting her feud with the First Lady of the United States die.

But Melania Trump is at least more popular than her husband, with 44 percent of respondents in a recent CNN poll holding a favorable view of her versus his approval rating of 41 percent.

A great deal else about Melania Trump's tenure so far as First Lady remains secretive, the Vanity Fair report said.
