Melania Trump affirms her immigration story after it's questioned

Melania Trump took to Twitter to dispel any questions about her immigration status Thursday.

A Politico piece published Thursday points to gaps in Trump's immigration story and questions whether the short-term immigration visa she said she initially obtained to come to the United States would have allowed her to work as a model.

Trump said she traveled to Slovenia to renew her visa as required and stated that she has always followed U.S. immigration law.

"I have at all times been in full compliance with the immigration laws of this country," Trump said in a statement. "Any allegation to the contrary is simply untrue."

Questions about her immigration to the United States come after journalists have pushed the campaign about other inconsistencies, such as a claim that she graduated from college in Slovenia.
