The first lady sat down for the interview during her recent tour through Africa, where she was miles away from the politics of Washington, D.C. However, it seems that even when she’s home, she chooses not to pay too much attention to what the media writes about her marriage — including Stormy Daniels’s allegations of the president’s infidelity.
“It is not a concern and focus of mine,” FLOTUS said. “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”

She went on to admit that the speculation still isn’t “pleasant.”
“I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage,” she explained. “But I know what is right and what is wrong, and what is true or not true.”
Until now, the first lady hasn’t made any public statements about the allegations made against her husband. Despite President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s assertion that Melania Trump “believes in her husband, she knows it’s not true,” Melania disclosed that she never had a conversation with Giuliani about where she stood.
Regardless of the accusations, however, the first lady said that she loves her husband — adding that reports that say otherwise are “gossip.”
“It’s what media speculate,” she concluded, “and it’s gossip. It’s not always correct stuff.”
