Posed buck naked in the January 1996 issue of Max, a French men's magazine. The photographs were taken the previous year in New York City, at a time when Melania (according to her own anecdotal evidence) likely lacked a proper visa to work in the United States.[1]

Melania Trump's personal website touted a degree in architecture and design from the "University in Slovenia." But she attended the University of Ljubljana briefly and was awarded no credential. After the claim was disputed publicly, the website was quietly taken down.[2]
