"It is not concern and focus of mine": FLOTUS Melania Trump opens up about sexual allegations against husband President Trump
In an interview with ABC News that aired Friday night, the First Lady maintained that she still loves her husband, despite what's been reported about him
According to the First Lady of The United States, there are "much more important things to think about" than infidelity allegations against her husband, President Donald Trump. In a conversation with ABC, while touring Africa last week, Melania Trump said people are interested in such rumors about her marriage only on a tabloid level.
“I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage and circulate the gossip,” she said. “But I understand the gossip sells newspapers, magazines ... and, unfortunately, we live in this kind of world today.” For her, random accusations of her husband's infidelities are not a concern, she insisted.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, an old "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which Trump could be heard talking about groping and trying to woo women he wanted to have sex with. Since then he has been accused of having multiple affairs while still being married to Melania. Adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal stole the limelight amid the allegations that they had sexual encounters and relationships with the former presidential hopeful.
In the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, the real estate mogul can be heard saying that when he’s attracted to beautiful women, “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet.” He is also heard saying that when "you’re a star, women let you grab them by the p----,” and that “you can do anything.”
However, Trump has denied accusations from both Daniels and McDougal but acknowledged reimbursing his then-lawyer Michael Cohen for an alleged $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels. Melania, however, chose to not respond on the subject during her sit down interview, the Associated Press reports.
During the ABC interview, the First Lady was asked if she loves her husband, to which she responded saying: “Yes, we are fine. Yes.” She was also asked if repeated rumors of his alleged philandering had affected their marriage, but she refuted those claims outright. “It is not concern and focus of mine,” she said. “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”
According to her, it is only the "media world" that is "speculating" on the subject. “Yeah, it’s not always pleasant, of course,” she said. “But I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”
ABC News aired Trump's interview on "Good Morning America" during an hourlong special broadcast Friday night when she was asked why she wore a jacket emblazoned with the words “I really don’t care, do u?” She was visiting migrant children who had reportedly been separated from their parents at the time.
In a blatant rebuke to mainstream left-leaning media, Melania said she deliberately wore the jacket while boarding and getting off the plane to give out a message to “people and the left-wing media who are criticizing me.” She said it was a statement upholding that no matter how much she is criticized, she will always do “what I feel is right.”
The former Slovenian supermodel said that after seeing “how the media was obsessed about it," she purposely wore the jacket on her flight back to Washington. “It was kind of a message, yes,” the first lady said.
Melania also asserted in another portion of the interview that she could easily be “the most bullied person” in the world and urged accusers of sexual abuse to “show the evidence" before making their claims. Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in August, saying he, his client, and the National Enquirer bought the silence of both Daniels and McDougal after they allegedly had affairs with Trump.
