Lady Melania Trump insisted she has ‘much more important’ things to worry about.
In an interview with American TV network ABC, the First Lady insists she is unfazed by claims in the media that her husband has been unfaithful.
Journalist Tom Llamas asked: “You’re not the first First Lady to have to deal with her husband’s alleged infidelities. Has this put a strain on your marriage?”
“I’m a mother and a first lady – I have much more important things to do,” she said. “But I know people like to speculate and [the] media like to speculate about our marriage.”
When asked if she’d been hurt by the persistent claims, Mrs. Trump took a long pause before replying, “What the media is speculating, yes.
“It’s not always pleasant, of course. But I know what is right and what is wrong – what is true and what is not.”
She went on to play down any suggestions the persistent claims had put a strain on their marriage, insisting their relationship is ‘fine’.
Historically, the President has been accused of having a number of affairs – with porn star Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal both claiming to have shared an intimate moment with Trump years ago.
Mrs. Trump has never publicly address Stormy Daniel’s allegations but she refused to endorse Rudy Guiliani’s claims that she believed her husband, protesting that she never spoke to her husband’s attorney about it.
In the penultimate weeks of the 2016 presidential election, an ‘Access Hollywood’ interview from 2005 documented Trump bragging about being able to grope women because his A-List status.
The President also has been accused of sexual misconduct by 22 different women between 1970 and 2013 – all claims of which Trump vehemently denies.
Melania stood by Trump’s denial and urged any women making accusations of sexual assault against her husband to “show the evidence.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Melania sensationally claimed she is one of the most bullied people in the world.
The First Lady’s comments sparked ridicule on social media with hundreds asking if she was referring to husband Donald Trump as her tormentor.
“I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world,” the First Lady told Llamas.
“One of them, if you really see what people are saying about me,” she then added.
The mum-of-one explained how her experience with bullying led in part to her Be Best campaign, which seeks to raise awareness about cyberbullying.
The full interview aired on Friday in the ABC News special, ‘Being Melania the First Lady.’
