First Lady Melania Trump just scored a huge victory against an online newspaper source that trashed her background before the election.
Congratulations on our country’s First Lady on her win and for of fighting the good fight.
The online mag had reported she had been a high paid escort when that wasn’t true. The Daily Mail also apologized publicly for making the purposeful mistake.

Melania Trump is getting a reported $2.9 million in damages and legal fees from the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper, as well as a written apology for an article it published ahead of the Presidential election.
“The Mail Online website and the Daily Mail newspaper published an article on 20th August 2016 about Melania Trump which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model, and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling. The article included statements that Mrs. Trump denied the allegations and Paulo Zampolli, who ran the modelling agency, also denied the allegations, and the article also stated that there was no evidence to support the allegations. The article also claimed that Mr. and Mrs. Trump may have met three years before they actually met, and ‘staged’ their actual meeting as a ‘ruse.’”
“We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them. We apologize to Mrs Trump for any distress that our publication caused her. To settle Mrs. Trump’s two lawsuits against us, we have agreed to pay her damages and costs.”
