Trump expressed similar disdain for fake news hits on the first lady in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News this week.

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted at the time.

"The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy theories that it's actually not her by my side in Alabama and other places", wrote Trump.

Claims Ms Trump has used a body double first surfaced in late 2017 during an appearance at a press conference alongside her husband.

Trump tweeted Wednesday decrying a fourth estate which, he argues, is "getting more deranged with time!". The First Lady's spokesperson denied that she uses a body double in 2017.
