In Wolkoff's book release, the East Wing has for the first time faced a problem more commonly reserved for the West Wing: the "tell-all" book by a former employee.
Despite being friends with Melania for so many years, this is a hard question for Wolkoff to answer, as she says Trump is "oddly secretive" about her son and motherhood, even with those closest to her.
All week, we have been mildly scandalized, though never really shocked, by the picture of Melania Trump that former friend and advisor Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has painted for us in her new book, Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady.More news: Nvidia Benchmarks RTX 3080 Against RTX 2080 Ti In Doom Eternal
Trump administration economic adviser Larry Kudlow said he believes the president will announce an aid package to save the airlines from laying off tens of thousands of workers on October 1, when restrictions from the previous stimulus package run out.
In her book, Wolkoff said Melania Trump believed someone was trying to sabotage her when they let her read a plagiarized speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention. Because of this, her book about the First Lady could be considered as a "revenge book".

And though Melania Trump's big cause as first lady is to stem bullying, she kind of seemed unconcerned about teaching this to her own son, judging by a "prank" she related to Wolkoff. She alleged that the model-turned First Lady even called her stepdaughter and her husband Jared Kushner as "snakes".
Trump has fumed this week over Wolkoff's about-face from eager friend and active member of her tightly held inner circle, to what Grisham has said on Trump's behalf is "revisionist history". Melania Trump often referred to Ivanka as "princess" as well.
She was sacked from the White House in 2018 after a scandal involving spending on the inauguration. "For the standing part, we put Barron between Donald and Melania and made sure that Don Jr. stood next to Melania, not Ivanka".More news: Mackenzie Scott Became the World's Richest Woman
In response to these allegations, the White House responded through Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham. "Sadly, this is a deeply insecure woman who's need to be relevant defies logic".
