Melania said she is, “disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week.”

“I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain,” Melania said in her statement.

Melania made it clear that she condemns the violence that happened in D.C. last week.
