Former Melania Trump ally and staffer Stephanie Winston Wolkoff released her new book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” today and it shows the First Lady’s ill relationship with two oldest children.
According to the Daily Mail’s Cheyenne Roundtree, the first lady “would roll her eyes whenever Ivanka opined about being America’s first female president, mumbling under her breath, ‘No thank you,’ a source connected to the bombshell book about the first lady exclusively told DailyMail.com.”
According to Wolkoff, Melania would often make disparaging comments about Ivanka Trump, referring to her as “The Princess.”
Rountree also reports that according to Wolkoff, Melania Trump “was behind a petty mission to ensure” that Ivanka Trump “was blocked from her father’s swearing-in ceremony photo” in January 2017.
Melania also hated the idea of Ivanka being the first woman president.
The Mail’s source said that according to the book, White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner (who is married to Ivanka Trump) would say of his wife, “She’s got what it takes. She’s a born leader. The people love her, look at her” — and “Melania would mumble, ‘No thank you.’”
That source also told the Mail, “Meanwhile, Melania had to deal with Don Jr.’s conviction that he too would follow in his dad’s footsteps in becoming commander in chief. Melania would discretely shake her head in disgust over these two running around the White House saying, ‘Look at me, look at me’ and acting like they were the ones in charge….. While Melania strived for peace and order in her new home, she compared the White House to an out-of-control circus thanks to its self-appointed co-ringleaders Ivanka and Don Jr.’”
According to the Mail’s source, “Melania complained that Ivanka was always competing with her for his attention, as if she knew better and was more capable of being the first lady. Melania spoke out against Ivanka’s incessant need to involve herself in just about everything in the White House, even if it didn’t concern her. She would always find some way to meddle, some way to make her point be heard….. There’s no warmth between those two.”
