Melania Trump is finally sharing her thoughts on her husband's alleged affairs.
The first lady told ABC News this week that the allegations of President Trump being unfaithful to her about a decade ago are "not a concern" because she has "much more important things to think about and to do." Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has claimed she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, and model Karen McDougal has claimed she had an affair with him around the same time. Donald and Melania Trump married in 2005 and had their son Barron in 2006. A White House spokesperson said in February that Trump denies having a relationship with McDougal, and the president tweeted in May that Daniels' allegations were "false and extortionist."
In the interview, Melania Trump admitted that the allegations, and subsequent media speculation, are "not always pleasant," but she knows "what is true or not true." When asked if she loves her husband, she said, "Yes, we are fine."
The first lady has rarely weighed in on rumors of her husband's past affairs. When the Stormy Daniels allegations came out earlier this year, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Melania "knows it's untrue." But the first lady told ABC News that she never spoke with Giuliani and isn't sure why he released that statement. Watch Melania Trump's comments below. Brendan Morrow
