Melania Trump says she ignores rumors of husband's cheating

In an interview with ABC News, she said media speculation about her marriage was not "pleasant".

"It's not a concern and focus of mine", she responded calmly. "I'm a mother and first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do".

Melania said the constant barrage of embarrassing stories in the past year is "not always pleasant".

"I could say I'm the most bullied person in the world", she told the reporter. "You need to ask him".

Staying on the topic of Melania and Donald's marriage, the ABC journalist then asks her a very-much no-holes-barred question: "You mention you still have a good marriage, do you love your husband?" "It's what media speculate, and it's gossip. It's not always correct stuff", Melania said.

In the first part of the interview released on Thursday, Mrs Trump said women who alleged sexual abuse must produce "really hard evidence".

She also seemed to throw Rudy Giuliani under the bus.

Today in Being Melania promotion, ABC News's Tom Llamas again marveled that the First Lady agreed to do this interview with ABC News without stipulations, which he gushed, is "to your credit".

Donald Trump has since admitted to reimbursing Cohen for the payment, but the president insists the affair itself never took place. I know people to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage.

Melania wore then jacket, emblazoned with the words "I really don't care", while en-route to visit child migrants held at a U.S. detention centre, sparking controversy.

A second woman, former playboy model Karen McDougal, also came forward with allegations that she and Donald Trump had a 10-month long affair a decade ago.

ABC said the full interview will air later Friday.

Donald Trump, on the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape that became public during the 2016 campaign, says when he's attracted to beautiful women, "I just start kissing them". "Don't get me wrong; she's not happy about these things being made public, and she's not happy about an adult actress talking about what her husband's penis is supposedly like".
