Melania Trump says she loves Donald Trump and has “much more important things to think about” than allegations he cheated on her with a porn star, a Playboy Playmate or anyone else.
Mrs Trump, who was interviewed by ABC while touring Africa last week, said people are just spreading rumors about her marriage.
“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.”
She insisted allegations of her husband’s infidelities were not a concern.
Trump, who during the 2016 presidential campaign was heard on an old “Access Hollywood” tape talking about groping and trying to have sex with women, has been accused of having multiple affairs. Porn actor Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal have said they had sex with him years ago.
Trump has denied the trysts with Daniels and McDougal but has acknowledged reimbursing his lawyer for a $130,000 hush money payment made to Daniels. Mrs Trump has generally kept quiet on the subject.
