She was once in an Aflac commercial

It's no news that Melania Trump was not exactly into politics before she became First Lady. She was a former model who dabbled in a few other things, including voicing a duck for an Aflac commercial.

On January 31, Trump brought up this aspect of his wife's past when reps for Aflac met with him in the Oval Office.

The insurance guys were there to praise Trump for the recent tax reform legislation, and the US president reminded them that his wife was once a part of their commercial. He was referring to a 2015 ad in which Melania dubbed the voice of the insurance company's 'spokesduck.'

A source revealed that Trump stated:

They actually, a long time ago, hired my wife to do a big commercial. You know that, right? An Aflac commercial. And I think it was a successful commercial, too.
