Melania Trump’s Website Taken Down Because It ‘Does Not Accurately Reflect’ Her Interests
Melaniatrump.com now directs to the Trump Organization website advertising the company's many golf and resort properties
Melania Trump's website, which gave her biography and linked to products she designed, has been taken down from the web, after reports began to question her educational history.
The URL, melaniatrump.com, redirects to the Trump Organization's website, trump.com, as of Thursday afternoon. That page advertises the company's many golf and resort properties and doesn't mention Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
It was taken down Wednesday, the Huffington Post first reported. The removal of her website comes after several news sources poked holes in Melania Trump's educational biography.

Her website, which is preserved by the Internet Archive, stated she had earned a design and architecture degree at "University in Slovenia" before continuing her modeling career.
According to The New York Times, she only spent a year at the University in Ljubljana, Slovenia, before dropping out to pursue modeling opportunities in Milan.
Trump released a statement about the website on Twitter Thursday: "The website in question was created in 2012 and has been removed because it does not accurately reflect my current business and professional interests."
Besides her marriage to the Republican nominee, Trump is known for modeling, and her jewelry and watch company.
Though she stayed out of the spotlight for much of her husband's campaign for president, her speech to the Republican National Convention last week garnered controversy for including several phrases apparently borrowed from Michelle Obama's Democratic convention speech in 2008.
