Melania Trump says she ignores rumors of Trump’s infidelity

Mrs. Trump has generally stayed quiet on the subject.

"It is not concern and focus of mine", she added.

But the first lady shrugged off charges of hypocrisy to promote her anti-bullying initiative during this month's solo trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt.

The first lady, who has mostly been reserved during her time in the White House, revealed in the interview series that she doesn't hesitate to offer her husband advice and opinions on political matters.

The president has admitted to reimbursing his former attorney Michael Cohen for the payment just ahead of the 2016 election but denies the affair, which Daniels says took place a decade earlier - shortly after the birth of his son with Melania.

During the interview, Melania Trump was asked about an assertion in June by Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president's personal lawyer, that she "believes her husband, and she knows it's untrue" when it comes to Daniels's claims.

Her full interview is set to air Friday night in an ABC News special, "Being Melania - The First Lady".

"I never talked to Mr. Giuliani", she said.

Asked why Giuliani would say that, she said: "I don't know".

At the time, the first lady's office issued a statement saying she had not spoken to Giuliani about the matter.

Melania said the constant barrage of embarrassing stories in the past year is "not always pleasant".

Though the clip doesn't include questions about her own husband's image as a bully, the first lady has faced ridicule.

"Yes, we are fine", she said of her marriage. "I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage".

Melania Trump later added: "I'm very strong, and I know what my priorities are".
