Me­la­nia: The gos­sip about Trump af­fairs doesn’t con­cern me

Daily Express - - RICHARD & JUDY - From Daniel Bates in New York

ME­LA­NIA Trump spoke for the first time yes­ter­day about her hus­band’s al­leged infidelity with a porn star.

The First Lady ad­mit­ted it was al­ways pleas­ant” to hear such claims.

In a US TV in­ter­view, she ap­peared to put a brave face on a dif­fi­cult sub­ject but paused when asked if she had been hurt.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, 72, has been ac­cused of sex­ual ha­rass­ment by more than a dozen women and ex-porn star Stormy Daniels claimed she slept with him af­ter his mar­riage to Me­la­nia.

Fol­low­ing the al­le­ga­tions Mrs Trump, 48, did not go with her hus­band to the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum in Davos last year and ar­rived sep­a­rately at his State Of The Union ad­dress.

Mrs Trump was also seen swat­ting hand away on their first for­eign trip.

Strain

“not his

Ap­par­ently re­fer­ring to the Clin­tons, TV in­ter­viewer 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?”

Mrs Trump said: “It is not a con­cern and fo­cus of mine. I’m a mother and a First Lady and I have much more im­por­tant things to think about and to do.

“I un­der­stand the gos­sip sells news­pa­pers, mag­a­zines, get­ting ad­ver­tis­ers and un­for­tu­nately we live in this kind of world.”

Mr Lla­mas asked if Mrs Trump had been hurt, to which the First Lady paused for three sec­onds and looked into the dis­tance.

She said: “It’s not al­ways pleas­ant, of course, but I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”

She said she had a “good mar­riage” adding that: “We’re fine.”
