Melania Trump has been forced to fight back against a US TV host's claims about her marriage.
Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC made comments suggesting that Melania is doing the "worst job in the country" all for the sake of her and Donald's son, Barron.
In an Instyle.com interview, Brzezinski said: "I'm just telling you, Melania's got the worst job in the country and I don't think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that's it."
The first lady's press office quickly responded, telling the Daily Mail: "It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don't know me."

An ongoing feud between Donald Trump and Brzezinski is said to have fuelled the comments, after Trump released a series of tweets about the MSNBC Morning Joe presenter.
Trump described Brzezinski as "low IQ Crazy Mika" and claimed she was "bleeding badly from a facelift" while at his Florida resort for New Year's Eve.
And he didn't stop there, adding: "Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!"
When asked about cyber-bulling and Trump's antics, Brzezinski replied: "I know Melania. I haven't talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don't think she's going to put up with it much longer. That's just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut's always right."
