Melania Trump Named Among World's 'Most Admired' Women of 2021

Melania Trump is among the world's most admired women of 2021, according to a poll.

The former first lady is joined by Michelle Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson and more on YouGov's annual international survey.

Trump ranks number 16 on the list topped by Obama while another former first lady, Hillary Clinton, ranks at number 12.

Michelle Obama holds on to her position as the world's most admired woman for the third year running while Angelina Jolie continues to be the world's second-most admired woman.

The poll surveyed more than 42,000 people in 38 countries and results are tallied based on the answers to two questions: "who do you truly admire?" and "who do you MOST admire?"

In the men's most admired list, Barack Obama tops the list with fellow former president Donald Trump ranking below at number 13.

Newcomers in the lists' top 20 this year are President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who rank at 20 and 11 on their respective lists.

Other political figures on the lists include Vladimir Putin and Jacinda Ardern.

The Trumps made headlines this week when the former president had to deny that his wife would not be joining him in the White House for a potential second term.

Although Donald Trump has not officially confirmed if he plans to run again in 2024, he has consistently teased the possibility since leaving office.

"More fake news," Donald Trump said when asked if Melania Trump planned not to join him during an appearance on Fox & Friends this week.

"She was a great first lady, she did a great job. She loves the people, they love her."

Meanwhile, Melania Trump's stint in the White House was a hot topic in recent weeks as current first lady Jill Biden unveiled her holiday decorations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Melania Trump famously hated Christmas and her unorthodox choice of holiday décor was questioned a lot during her husband's administration.

The former first lady's infamous secretly recorded phone call when she complained about having to decorate the White House reemerged again as her dystopian blood-red Christmas trees of 2018 were compared to Dr. Jill Biden's warmer approach to décor this year.

A former aide secretly recorded her saying: "Who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff? Give me a f****** break. I'm working like a—my a** off at Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right? Correct?"
