A new book titled “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House“booms stores next Tuesday.
The book is written by Michael Wolff, a USA Today columnist, who claims that Melania Trump wasn’t trilled after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election.
Excerpts from his book were published in New York magazine that read:
Not only did Trump disregard the potential conflicts of his own business deals and real-estate holdings, he audaciously refused to release his tax returns. Why should he? Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.
Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.
The first lady provided a response through her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, immediately after she heard about the book’s claim.
The response said:
The book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section. Mrs. Trump supported her husband’s decision to run for president and in fact, encouraged him to do so. She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did.
Wolff still hasn’t provided any response to the comments from the first lady’s office.
