Melania Trump Slams ‘Dishonest’ Report She’s Under Investigation: ‘Typical Corrupt Media’

Melania Trump has fired back at The New York Times over “dishonest reporting” that claims she’s under investigation in Florida.

The Times printed another hit piece on the Trump family but included an allegation that the former first lady is being investigated for not following charity laws.

Melania said: “Dishonest reporting at it again. Everything has been done lawfully, & all documents are in the works.

“Read with caution-typical corrupt media.

“We are working w/Bradley Impact Fund, a Donor-Advised Fund, to select charities that will receive the donations to foster children.”

The piece noted a few of Melania’s business deals including her sale of an NFT collection and an exclusive arrangement with the social media platform Parler:

“In January, she put up for auction a digital portrait of her by a French artist, a print of the portrait and a white hat she once wore at the White House while meeting the president of France.

“On Wednesday, Parler announced a deal with Mrs. Trump whose financial terms were not disclosed.

“In a statement, she said she would provide the site exclusive content ‘to inspire others’ and promote a series of future online auctions of ‘collectibles’ like the hat she wore at the White House.”

It was at that point the Times let the mud fly writing:

“Mrs. Trump is now selling tickets to the April ‘high tea,’ with organizers saying that some of the profits will benefit an initiative of her ‘Be Best’ endeavor called ‘Fostering the Future,’ meant to provide computer-science scholarships to young people who have been in foster care.

“There was no indication of how much of the proceeds Mrs. Trump herself intended to pocket.

“Florida requires any organization that raises charitable contributions in the state to register.

“No charity with the name ‘Fostering the Future’ or ‘Be Best’ is registered in Florida.”

But that is not a story unless they get this vague quote from the agency, which allowed liberal outlets to try to make it a scandal:

“Asked about the solicitation, officials at the Florida agency that oversees charitable fund-raising said they also could not find evidence of the required state registration and had opened an inquiry as a result.

“’Consumer Services Division is currently investigating whether this event involves an entity operating in violation of Chapter 496, Florida Statutes,’ Erin M. Moffet, an agency spokeswoman, said in a statement, referring to the state law requiring charities to register before soliciting money,” the Times said.
