A Daily Mail article last month cited a Slovenian magazine’s report that a New York modelling agency Melania Trump worked for in the 90s also served as an escort agency, linking wealthy clients with women for sex.

Donald Trump’s other half has now filed a $150 million (£113 million) lawsuit against the newspaper.
As of today, the story no longer appear on the Daily Mail website.
So did the Daily Mail actually flat out call Melania a prostitute? The article was titled ‘Racy photos, and troubling questions about his wife’s past that could derail Trump’ and they said the company “operated an escort agency for wealthy clients”. I suppose that amounts to saying she had sex for money, even though they deny it in their retraction.
Good thing the rest of us know that Melania Trump was never a hooker (apparently) and so we won’t be getting sued for £113 million. Phew! That’s real fact-checking journalism right there.
Don’t mess with the Trumps – you don’t want to end up like Gawker after Hulk Hogan was done with them.
