President Trump plus first lady Melania Trump are usually pushing back against a Pride Fair report that suggests the girl never wanted to be first female and that neither of them thought heâd win the presidency.
âMelania, our great and very hard working First Lady, who truly loves what she is doing, always thought that âif you run, you will win,ââ Leader Trump tweeted on Tuesday early morning. âShe would tell everyone that, âno doubt, he will win.â I also felt I would win (or I would not have run) â and Country is doing great!â
A spokeswoman for Melania Trump dismissed the report, published on the web Sunday, as a partisan smear.
âOnce again part of the liberal media, this time Vanity Fair, has written a story riddled with unnamed sources and false assertions,â Stephanie Grisham, the first ladyâs marketing communications director, said in a statement. âAs a magazine tailored to women it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs. Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as First Lady as a supportive wife and mother.â
A spokeswoman for Vanity Fair failed to immediately return a request for opinion.
In the report by the magazineâs Sarah Ellison, a longtime buddy of the first family told her that will Melania Trump was ill-prepared on her role in the White House. Melania Trump, a Slovenian-born former design and Trumpâs third wife, at first stayed in Trump Tower along with her 11-year-old son Barron, however they moved into the White House within June.
âThis isnât something she wanted and it isnât something he ever thought heâd win,â the unnamed buddy told Ellison. âShe didnât want this come hell or high water. I donât think she thought it was going to happen.â
But the survey also suggested that Melania Trump was the person who ultimately pushed the girl husband to run for president within 2015 after he publicly flirted with the idea for years.
âShe was very clearly the one who said, âEither run or donât run,ââ Roger Stone, a former Trump campaign agent and longtime friend, told the particular magazine. ââYour friends are tired of this striptease. Every four years you talk about it.ââ
âShe knew it was in his blood,â Stone added. âHe always wanted to run. She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying run or do not run. I donât think she was ever too crazy about it. â¦ She said, âItâs not my thing. Itâs Donaldâs thing.â And I think she understood he was going to be unhappy if he didnât run.â
Itâs not the first time Melania Trump offers responded to speculation over her correct feelings about life in the Eastern Wing.
Last month, Ivana Trump, Donald Trumpâs first wife, told ABCâs âGood Morning Americaâ that she speaks to Trump every couple weeks â? and that she gets a âdirect numberâ to call your pet at the White House but hardly ever uses it.
âI [donât] really want to call him there, because Melania is there,â Ivana Trump said. âAnd I donât want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that, because Iâm basically first Trump wife, OK? Iâm first lady.â
âI think for her to be in Washington must be terrible,â she said associated with Melania. âItâs better her than me. I would hate Washington.â
âMrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President,â Grisham shot back again. âShe loves living in Washington, D.C., and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books. There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex; this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.â
