( - Politics is a "tough business" that requires a "very thick skin," First Lady Melania Trump told Fox News's Sean Hannity Wednesday night.

But she said she wouldn't mind staying on for a second term.

"I think my husband is doing an incredible job. The country does best ever. So yes, I think I want the country to continue to do well."


Hannity asked Mrs. Trump what she would like the country to know about her husband that a hostile media would never report.

"That he's fighting for America and American people every day -- every day," Mrs. Trump said. "He wants to govern the right way, and sometimes it's tough because you can see the media wants to bash and focus on negativity."

Hannity asked Mrs. Trump about the most difficult thing she's had to deal with since her husband became president:

"I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers. It doesn't hurt, she said. "The problem is they are writing the history, and it's not correct."

Especially with the speculation about you and your marriage, Hannity prodded her.

Mrs. Trump told him the opportunists "like to focus on the gossip, and I would like that they focus on the substance and what we do, not just about nonsense."

Mrs. Trump said she knew her husband would win the election because of the way he "connects" with people.

Tweeting is one of the ways the president connects, and Hannity asked her, nicely, if she tries to restrain him at times. She replied that she gives her husband her honest opinion, and sometimes he listens, and sometimes he doesn't.

"I don't agree with his tone sometimes, and I tell him that," she said. "I said to him, you know, I don't think you need to tweet that out. But in the end, it's his decision, he knows the consequences, he's an adult, any you know, but he's a fighter. He's the fighter."
