Melania Trump won a 2.9 million dollar settlement that against UK’s Daily Mail for an article that they published that slandered her during the 2016 election.
Here’s what happened:
According to Fox News, Daily Mail wrote the following:
“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.”
The First Lady has filed a lawsuit against Daily Mail and has argued that the report damaged her ability to make money off her name and brand.
This is what the lying mainstream media does. They attack people all the time and they need to pay for it!
