Fans have tirelessly compared both women with each other using their achievements, sense of fashion, intelligence, and many more as standards of measurement.

While it is evident that they are entirely different people, Michelle and Melania are, however, strongly alike when it comes to how they got engaged.

How Donald Trump proposed to Melania

With the lavish lifestyle surrounding the Trumps, one would assume that the POTUS’ proposal would be extravagant. But the reverse was the case.

As reported by Page Six, President Trump proposed to Melania in 2004 at the Met Gala. Donald kept things simple and didn’t try to attract any attention to him and his then-fiancée.

However, the ring was far from simple as he engaged Melania with a 15-karat diamond ring that reportedly cost $1.5 million.

How then did Barack propose?

Surprisingly, Barack Obama also followed a simple manner of proposal.

As revealed in Michelle’s best-selling memoir, she and Barack were at a restaurant in Chicago when he asked for her hand in marriage.

She explained that on that particular evening, they had gone to their favorite restaurant and had gotten into an argument about marriage.

Barack was of the opinion that they didn’t need to marry to solidify their love, but Michelle wasn’t going for it. Amid their heated argument, a waiter approached their table and left a dessert plate covered by a silver lid on her side.

She looked down and opened it only to realize that on the plate was a dark velvet box with a diamond ring. The former president then dropped to his knee and proposed.

With Barack and Donald going for elegant yet not extravagant methods of proposal, maybe there is, after all, a similarity between the Obamas and Trumps!
