Although he claims to be a religious person, considering the damage and harm that President Trump has caused, and the egregious things that he so often says, one would never think that Trump nor his close colleagues could be individuals that are guided by any type of moral compass. However, a recent, fairly odd, story seems to show otherwise of First Lady Melania Trump.
Upon being sworn into office and setting up camp in the White House, the Trump family underwent strange rituals, the likes of which have been often unheard of in the religious community itself. Not only did Trump have roughly 40 pastors enter the White House and lay their hands to pray on him seven times, emerging reports are now claiming that Melania Trump asked for an exorcism to be done on the White House very shortly after the Obama’s had left the home. According to a Daily Dot article, right-wing pastor Paul Begley claimed in an interview that:
‘The first lady, in that five hours when the Obamas and the Trumps went down to the Capitol and Trump was being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, Melania Trump said to her husband, “I’m not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised.”‘

According to Paul Begley, when the Obamas occupied the White House it was filled with “all kinds of idol gods and images and all kinds of artifacts in there that were demonic.”

Although the reports have yet to receive any comment from the Trump administration or White House, it wouldn’t be hard to expect members of Trump’s inner circle of fanatical extremism and paranoia. Begley is both a hyper-conservative, and to some extent, believes himself to be a prophet of some sorts. His “credentials” in the field of spirituality would make it apparent that extremists would consider his claims, which makes it believable that someone like Melania Trump may have been overly concerned about the ongoings in the previous president’s household.
When considering things such as Melania’s initial decision to live in New York as opposed to the White House, and the few appearances she made in D.C. before moving there last June, it is perhaps reasoning to claim that she was concerned about living in the White House until her demands had been met. Regardless of the extent of validity in these claims, it is not hard to understand how or why Mrs. Trump may have been fanatical about moving into the home.
