First Lady Melania Trump attacked her former friend and confidante Stephanie Winston Wolkoff earlier this week, claiming that Wolkoff “clung to me” and “hardly knew me.”
On Saturday, Wolkoff defended her case during an interview with The Daily Beast. She referred to the first lady as a liar.
“I find it puzzling that the First Lady of the United States asked someone she ‘hardly knew’ to attend her nuptials, join her for countless lunches, help plan the presidential inauguration, stay over at the White House and Mar-a-Lago, and act as her senior advisor,” said Wolkoff. “I wrote this book to share with the public my experience of working with Melania, our fifteen-year friendship, and her ultimate betrayal. This portrait is not all flattering but it’s the truth and Americans deserve the truth about the occupants of the White House.”
Wolkoff and the First Lady fell out after federal investigators began looking into potential fraud in the Trump inaugural fund, at which time Melania did not defend Wolkoff and the administration used her as a scapegoat.
