Melania Trump news: FLOTUS accused on of lying about her career | World | News

The former model was caught out after it was noted her personal website claimed she obtained a degree in design and architecture from a university in Slovenia. Melania was born in Novo Mesto, and grew up in Sevnica, Slovenia. While Trump was President-elect the government website said Melania “paused her studies to advance her modelling career in Milan and Paris”.

It did not say whether she resumed or completed the degree.

The bio also did not say when or where she completed the degree but claimed she was working as a model at the time and “jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan”.

The now First Lady’s bio on the White House website no longer contains any information about her academic career.

Blaz Matija Vogelnik, a professor who said he briefly taught her at Slovenia’s University of Ljubljana, told NBC News she did not complete his course.

He said: “She hasn’t finished university, at least not in Ljubljana.

“My personal opinion is that, because she was very beautiful girl, I believe that she realised that she could gain more with that, than to have long studies.”

Mr Vogelnik noted his former student did pass a rigorous test to gain entry to the University, and based on that he believed “her IQ was very high.”

Had Melania completed the course her research would be in the university’s library.

NBC reported it couldn’t be found there when they visited the campus.

GQ magazine reported Melania “decamped to Milan after her first year of college, effectively dropping out”.

The story included an interview with the First Lady, as well as friends and former colleagues.

After several other reports cast doubt over her resumé claims, she removed her entire website.

She said in a tweet that “it does not accurately reflect my business and professional interests”.

The former model’s website no longer exists, along with the bio claiming she has a degree, and it now directs people to the First Lady’s Facebook page.

Melania recently came under fire after she was spotted using translation headphones while listening to French President Macron at the G7 summit in Biarritz last month.

The confusion arose as Melania claims she is able to speak French fluently.

She was savaged after the videos of her holding the headphones and listening intently appeared online.

Commenting on the clip CNN commentator Keith Boykin said: “Wait. I thought Melania Trump spoke French fluently.”

Despite this, Melania was previously recorded speaking French to school children in 2017.

Melanie reportedly speaks other languages including Slovenian, German and Italian
