Mela­nia loves Trump, ig­nores cheat­ing ru­mors


WASH­ING­TON — Mela­nia Trump says she loves Pres­i­dent 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 are not a con­cern.

Trump, who dur­ing the 2016 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign was heard on an old “Ac­cess Hol­ly­wood” tape talk­ing about grop­ing and try to have sex with women, has been ac­cused of hav­ing mul­ti­ple af­fairs. Porn star 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.

Asked in the ABC in­ter­view if she loves her hus­band, Mrs. Trump said, “Yes, we are fine. Yes.”
