Melania Trump delivered remarks at her first solo campaign stop in Pennsylvania on Tuesday in which she admitted to supporters that she does not always agree how President Trump delivers his message.

“I don’t always agree the way he says things, but it is important to him that he speaks directly to the people he serves,” the first lady said. Her statement came as a surprise to many, and is believed to have helped the campaign by showing that women, like the president's wife, do not have to agree with everything he does.

Merlynn Carson, the CEO of Myriddian, a minority-woman owned consulting firm, said Wednesday on “Just the News AM” host that the first lady’s comments were an appeal to women who may not like his style but do want to listen to Trump on policy matters.

“We don't always have to agree with the President,” she told show host Carrie Sheffield. “I think it's great that he's being transparent. I think the media, the left media, has been very, very unfair to him."
