Former First Lady Melania Trump has addressed the recent rumors about her that have overtaken the media following her husband’s, former President Donald Trump’s arraignment in a Manhattan courtroom last week.
Many observers have pointed out that Melania Trump rarely appears along with her husband at public events. Most notable lately was her absence from his arraignment during which he pleaded not guilty to 34 charges of falsifying business records in connection to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over the extramarital affair. Trump has repeatedly claimed he has committed no wrongs in relation to this case and has denied the affair.
Not only was Melania Trump absent during the arraignment, but she was also not at his side during his speech later that night at Mar-a-Lago. This has led to many speculations with People magazine claiming that Melania Trump is “uncomfortable” with political appearances.
On Tuesday morning for the first time, Melania Trump responded to these rumors through a statement where she urged people to use “good judgment” when reading reports from anonymous sources about her. As the statement points out many news organizations use anonymous sources when speaking about the former First Lady’s position. The statement then proceeds to note that readers should “exercise caution and good judgment” when deciding whether or not these information sources are accurate and should be believed. The statement did not address any specific rumors directly.
