Donald Trump jokes Melania would not cry if he was shot in speech on real shooting

Donald Trump joked that his wife Melania would not cry if he was shot in a speech about an actual shooting.

During a fundraiser for Republicans running for the House of Representatives, the US President delivered a joke laden speech.

In a section about Rep. Steve Scalise - who was seriously injured in a shooting while at a congressional baseball practice - the former Apprentice star riffed on the topic of marital strife.

Trump said Jennifer Scalise, Steve's wife, "cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day," setting himself up for the punchline.

"I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn’t," he said, Politico reported.

As well as drawing attention to the President's 'sense of humour', the remarks have again put the spotlight on his relationship with Melania.
