First lady Melania Trump issued an unusual statement on Thursday distancing herself from Rudy Giuliani’s claim that she believes President Trump’s denial of an affair with adult-film star Stormy Daniels, saying through a spokeswoman that she has never “discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani.”
“I don’t believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said in a statement to The Hill and The New York Times.
Melania’s statement comes one day after the president’s attorney said during an appearance at the Globes Capital Market Conference in Israel that the first lady believes her husband.
“She believes her husband and she doesn’t think it’s true,” Giuliani said, arguing that Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has no credibility because of her profession.
Daniels claims that she and Trump had an affair in 2006, nearly a year after Trump and first lady were married.
