Where did Melania Trump’s website go? Donald Trump’s wife’s site seemed to disappear on July 27 after speculation that she lied about her education in the biography section. Get the details right here!
Melania Trump‘s website mysteriously vanished from the Internet after she was under fire for lying about a degree she might not have earned. Several news outlets noticed the 46-year-old’s bio claimed that she earned a degree in architecture from the University of Ljubljana, despite a biography published about her life saying that she left the school after one year. Instead of defending her education, Melania seemingly just deleted all traces of it!
While it’s not completely far-fetched that Melania would attend the University of Ljubljana, as it is in her home country of Slovenia, the facts don’t seem to line up. Two Slovenian journalists published an unofficial biography titled Melania Trump ― The Inside Story: From a Slovenian Communist Village to the White House in February, which read that she did in fact attend the school, but dropped out after her freshman year to pursue modeling. After becoming Donald Trump‘s partner, though, Melania insisted that she got her degree.
“This was almost certainly done in consultation with Trump and his advisors, as they were desperate to give off the impression that the Slovenian model was not just beautiful, but also smart and well-educated,” the biography read. Now that she could potentially be the United States’ next First Lady, of course she’s going to try giving off that same impression — but that may have just backfired!
Even if Melania had tried to prove her education information was real, the timing of the speculation may not have allowed for a very believable retort. Just days before her bio was questioned, Melania was accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama‘s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech after she gave her own speech at the Republican National Convention in support of Donald.
Although Melania did issue a statement admitting that she didn’t write her RNC speech, she hasn’t said anything about her education or the peculiar disappearance of her website. And when a Trump campaign spokeswoman was asked about Melania’s education, she declined to confirm or deny the matter. Talk about suspicious, huh?!
When Internet users try going to MelaniaTrump.com now, it redirects to Trump.com. Who knows if Melania will ever get her own website back, but she may want to comment on why her site is suddenly gone before more speculation catches up to her!
