Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House offers quite a number of scandalous details.
New book reveals that Melania Trump is a victim of domestic violence.
Trump spent his inauguration day—fighting with First Lady Melania Trump.
Donald Trump didn’t want to win the election, and felt that being president “screwed up his plans” of starting “Trump TV.”
“This is bigger than I ever dreamed of,” he told Roger Ailes, the former head of Fox News, a week before the election. “I don’t think about losing because it isn’t losing. We’ve totally won.”
As New York Magazine reports:
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.
On Election Night, Donald Trump Jr. told a friend that his father looked like he had seen a ghost while Melania cried, and not out of joy.
During the inauguration, Melania Trump was left behind for former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama as Trump refused to escort her into the White House. During Trump’s swearing-in, Melania scowled, only smiling when Trump looked directly at her. Even during their first dance as President and First Lady, Melania was cold and distant, pulling away from him his face.
Considering the marriage crisis, domestic violence and the court battles, it’s easy to see why they behave this way.
