Navarro: Melania Is The “Jackie Kennedy Of Her Time”

ABC News reports:

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro offered lavish praise of first lady Melania Trump Tuesday, labeling her the “Jackie Kennedy of her time.” Navarro, head of President Donald Trump’s White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, remarked on the “elegance” and “soft-spokenness” of the first lady ahead of her headline speech at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night.

Navarro abruptly switched topics during an MSNBC appearance in which he was responding to questions about the Trump administration’s coronavirus pandemic response. Navarro slipped in a comparison between Melania and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The Melania-Jackie Kennedy comparison comes just days after the first lady was dragged by many Trump critics for renovating the Rose Garden, which had been through a redesign in the early 1960s, during the Kennedy administration.
