First Lady Melania Trump broke her silence over The Atlantic’s smear piece against President Trump that was published on Thursday.
According to the report, President Trump canceled a planned 2018 trip to a cemetery in France for American marines who died in World War I because of disdain for the slain soldiers who are buried there.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Melania said The Atlantic’s story is “not true,” and she declared that it is “not journalism” that led to the report being published. Continued Below
