Melania Trump, who pushed the racist Obama birther conspiracy in 2011, said the hardest thing she has had to deal with as first lady is contending with the “opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves.”
“I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday when asked what has been the hardest thing about being first lady.
“Does it hurt?” Hannity asked.
“It doesn’t hurt. The problem is they’re writing the history and it’s not correct,” Trump responded.

“They like to focus on the gossip and I would like to … focus on the substance, and what we do, not just about nonsense,” Trump said.
“I do what I think is right,” Trump told Hannity. “I know I will get the criticism from the public or from the media but I will do what is right and what I feel is right for the country and for the people.”
“I want to stay true to myself,” Trump said.
