“I think our husbands are doing [a] fantastic job and I will support my husband if he decided to run again,” the first lady said when pressed by students about whether she and Pence wanted to serve another term. 

“And yes, it’s a privilege, a great honor to serve and I will be here,” Trump continued. 

“What a privilege and honor to be able to go on this journey and it would be a privilege to continue as well,” Pence also said in response to the question.

Students also asked the pair about the impact their White House roles have had on their lives.

In her reply, Trump reportedly discussed her move from New York to Washington, D.C., and the number of responsibilities and tasks she has taken on since becoming the nation’s first lady. Trump has taken on child well-being, bullying and the opioid crisis with her "Be Best" initiative.

“But I would not change [it] for anything. I love what I do ... I will always shine a light on children and [the] next generation,” she said.
