First lady Melania Trump expected to develop "multimillion-dollar business relationships" tied to her presence in the White House, a lawsuit she filed shows.Ethics watchdogs worry that Mrs. Trump seems to be inappropriately trying to profit from a high-profile position that is usually centered on public service.She has also been suing the corporation that publishes the Daily Mail's website over a now-retracted report that claimed she once worked as an escort.While the new court documents don't specifically mention her role as first lady, an unusual passage argues that in addition to being false and libelous, the Daily Mail report damaged her ability to profit from her high profile, and affected her business opportunities.An Associated Press review of business filings found that Melania Trump has not stepped away from her brand.Two other of the first lady's companies tied to skincare products were shut down last week, according to business filings in Delaware.Trump continues to financially benefit from his global business empire, breaking from past practice.Melania Trump previously sued Mail Media Inc. in Maryland, but a judge earlier this month ruled the case was filed in the wrong court.
