"Yes.I let him know", Melania confirms, later adding that "yes" she thinks there still are people in his administration that he can't trust. But in a new interview with ABC News' Tom Llamas, FLOTUS says she sees herself as a victim of bullying.
"We need to have really hard evidence ... if you accuse [someone] of something, show the evidence", she continued.
So what exactly are people saying that makes the First Lady feel so excessively persecuted?
"Oh, I wish", she said, laughing.
Not after Barack Obama faced endless conspiracy theories about his foreignness (perpetuated, by the way, by Melania's husband, to which she said nothing).
"And now you have the First Lady of the United States telling women everywhere your word is not enough?!" she exclaimed.
"I support the women", the first lady told Llamas, "and they need to be heard". Trump is visiting Africa on her first big solo worldwide trip. "You always need to watch your back", she stated without going into details over who is hampering her husband's agenda.
In 2016, the Washington Post released a recording of the president bragging about sexually assaulting women, saying that he was so famous, he could do "anything", including grab women's vaginas.
The full interview, titled "Being Melania", will air tomorrow as an ABC special at 10pm EST (3am BST on Saturday). Usually, her husband is the one making extravagant declarations but Melania is learning fast it seems.
