"I could say I'm the most bullied person in the world", she told the reporter. Mrs. Trump has generally stayed quiet on the subject.

Though the clip doesn't include questions about her own husband's image as a bully, the first lady has faced ridicule.

The usually private first lady, who has refrained from responding publicly to repeated allegations of her husband's infidelity, which he's denied, opened up to Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas in an exclusive interview during her recent tour through Africa - her first solo worldwide trip as first lady.

The president has denied porn star Stormy Daniels' allegations that she had a fling with the future commander-in-chief more than a decade ago - though he has admitted reimbursing Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney, a $130,000 hush payment.

Rudy Giuliani, the president's current personal lawyer, said in June that the first lady "believes her husband, and she knows it's untrue", referring her thoughts on Daniels' claims. "It's what media speculate, and it's gossip".

Northern Territory WorkSafe said the attack happened near the community of Gan Gan, at least 500km (300 miles) east of Darwin. A FEMALE Aboriginal Ranger has been taken by a crocodile in East Arnhem Land today, NT Worksafe has been notified.

In addition to dropping off Be Best-branded tote bags laden with supplies at local schools, Melania made time during her trip to sit down for an exclusive interview with ABC News' Tom Llamas.

Asked if she loves her husband, she said: "Yes, we are fine", adding that gossip is "not always correct".

Asked why Giuliani would say that, she said: "I don't know. You need to ask him".

At the time, the first lady's office issued a statement saying she had not spoken to Giuliani about the matter.
