(National Sentinel)Â Classy: First lady Melania Trump is usually soft-spoken and quiet when it comes to controversy, butÂ Vanity Fair pushed her a little too far with a recent piece claiming she never wanted her husband to beat Hillary Clinton last year.
â€œThis isnâ€™t something she wanted and it isnâ€™t something [Donald Trump] ever thought heâ€™d win,â€ the unnamed source claimed. â€œShe didnâ€™t want this come hell or high water.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think she thought it was going to happen.â€
But the president took up for his wife earlier this week, pushing back against the story, taking to Twitter to send outÂ his ownÂ thoughts on the matter.
â€œMelania, our great and very hard working First Lady, who truly loves what she is doing, always thought that ‘if you run, you will win.’ She would tell everyone that, ‘no doubt, he will win.’ I also felt I would win (or I would not have run) â€” and Country is doing great!â€

Both Trump and Roger Stone, an early advisor to the president, noted that Melania was the one to finally push her husband into running.
â€œShe was very clearly the one who said, â€˜Either run or donâ€™t run,â€™â€ Stone told Vanity Fair. Paraphrasing Melania, he continued to say â€œâ€˜Your friends are tired of the striptease. Every four years you talk about it.â€™â€
Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for Melania, pointed out that the Vanity Fair piece is filled with â€œfalse assertionsâ€ by â€œunnamed sources.â€
â€œAs a magazine tailored to women it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs. Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as First Lady and as a supportive wife and mother,â€ she said in a statement.
She added thatÂ Melania is â€œhonored by her role,â€ and has stated that â€œon the record many times before.â€
Melania has been attacked by the mainstream media since her husband decided to run for the highest elected office in the country.
