Trump’s Wife Denies Visa Rule BreakTrump’s Wife Denies Visa Rule Break

Melania Trump, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, has rejected suggestions that she violated visa rules when she started working as a model in New York. In a statement she said she had followed immigration laws “at all times”. Trump has yet to clarify what type of visa she used during a 1995 photo shoot in New York. Trump has taken a hard line on illegal immigration in his campaign. The development comes during a turbulent week for the billionaire property developer, BBC reported. Trump said she began working as a model in the US in 1996, but photos published at the weekend by a New York tabloid appear to have been taken in 1995 for a now defunct French magazine. The owner of one modelling agency, Paolo Zampolli, says he sponsored Trump for an H1B work visa in 1996. She has said that she had to go back to her native Slovenia every few months to renew her permit—something that is only generally necessary for tourist and business visas that do not permit work. The confusion has the potential to do significant damage to Trump’s campaign, given his strong views on illegal immigrants.
