Trump doesn’t need to help his wife with this. She sees BS, she calls it. I think this message is clear: don’t mess with Melania. Her lawyers asked for People magazine to remove the lines in question within 24 hours…or face a lawsuit.
Melania Trump on Thursday threatened People magazine with a lawsuit over a story that alleges Donald Trump sexually harassed a People writer in 2005.
In a letter from her lawyer that she tweeted Thursday, Melania Trump takes issue with the writer’s claims that the two ran into each other some time after Donald Trump allegedly shoved the woman, Natasha Stoynoff, against a wall and tried to kiss her. Stoynoff wrote that a pregnant Melania was in another room of the Mar-a-Lago resort at the time.
According to the letter, Melania Trump never met with Stoynoff outside of the tower, and would not have recognized the reporter.
“That winter, I actually bumped into Melania on Fifth Avenue, in front of Trump Tower as she walked into the building, carrying baby Barron. ‘Natasha, why don’t we see you anymore?’ she asked, giving me a hug,'” Stoynoff wrote. “I was quiet and smiled, telling her I’d missed her, and I squeezed little Barron’s foot. I couldn’t discern what she knew. Did she really not guess why I hadn’t been around?”
“Mrs. Trump did not encounter Ms. Stoynoff on the street, nor have any conversation with her. The two are not friends and were never friends or even friendly,” the letter states.
