Melania Trump says she loves President Donald Trump and has “much more important things to think about” than allegations he cheated on her.
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.
Asked in the ABC interview if she loves her husband, Mrs. Trump said, “Yes, we are fine. Yes.”
She played down a suggestion the repeated rumors had put a strain on their marriage.
“It is not concern and focus of mine,” she said. “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”

When she was asked if the repeated rumors had hurt her, she reiterated the “media world is speculating.”
“Yeah, it’s not always pleasant, of course,” she said. “But I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”
Portions of Mrs. Trump’s interview aired Friday on “Good Morning America.” Her full interview is set to air Friday night in an ABC News special, “Being Melania — The First Lady.”
Other portions of the interview aired earlier this week featured Mrs. Trump saying she could be “the most bullied person” in the world and saying women who make accusations of sexual assault need to “show the evidence.”
