Ever since Donald Trump entered the presidential race, Melania Trump has become a punching bag for the mainstream media. Now, she’s finally fighting back.

This came after the publication printed a piece from People writer Natasha Stoynoff, who claimed that in 2005 Trump shoved her against a wall and tried to kiss her, while Melania, who was pregnant, was in another room of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Trump immediately spoke out to deny Stoynoff’s claims.
Why didn’t the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the “incident” in her story. Because it did not happen!

Melania has requested that a few specific lines be retracted, including an alleged encounter Stoynoff had with her near Trump Tower.
“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,” said a letter from Melania Trump’s lawyer to People, which also said that there’s no way she would have recognized Stoynoff.
Charles Harder, Melania Trump’s lawyer, told reporters that the description of the meeting was “false and complexly fictionalized.”
People was given 24 hours to retract these lines, but they have refused to do so.
“We stand by our story,” said spokesperson Marnia Perez.
We applaud Melania for standing by her man and courageously fighting for him. SHARE this story if you STILL support TRUMP!
