First Lady Melania Trump said she is not concerned about alleged infidelity by President Donald Trump.

In a new interview with ABC News during her recent trip to Africa, Melania Trump said she didn’t have time to think about the “gossip” surrounding her husband’s alleged affairs.

She later added: “It’s not always pleasant, of course, but I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”

Donald Trump’s alleged affairs were brought into the spotlight this year after former porn star Stormy Daniels said she’d had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump in 2006. Melania, Trump’s third wife, was pregnant with son Barron at the time.

Daniels spoke out as she sued Trump to break an agreement made to prevent her from talking about their alleged affair and drew attention to a $130,000 hush payment she received from Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen before the 2016 presidential election.

Donald Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels, but says he did not have an affair.

Melania Trump insisted she and Donald Trump remain in love. “Yes, we are fine,” she said. “It’s what media speculate, and it’s gossip. It’s not always correct stuff.”
