Washington: US President Donald Trump came to wife Melania Trump’s rescue, days after she faced backlash for wearing stilettos while visiting the flood ravaged Texas in August, a media report said.

US based magazine, The Hill quoted Trump saying, “She's wearing high-heels like many of you would do. And they went after her, but she didn't know, and then when she got off the plane in Texas she was wearing sneakers, which she had with her. And they [media] know it was dishonest," Trump told the crowd, adding sarcastically, "You know, she's going to go into the floods with her high heels.”

In August, Trump and his wife Melania had visited the flood ravaged Texas during which the latter was spotted wearing sky-high heels before boarding the aircraft from White House in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
