Donald Trump’s former press secretary Stephanie Grisham says her new book will contain secrets about Trump that even Melania doesn’t know.
Grisham was a close friend of the First Lady, but fell out with her after Trump supporters rioted outside the Capitol Building in the mistaken belief that the election had been “stolen”.
As the attack on the heart of America’s government unfolded, Grisham texted Melania and suggested that she issue a response: “Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence?”
Grisham received a one-word answer: “No”.
The long-time Trump loyalist handed in her notice within a few hour. Now she’s preparing to tell all about her time in Trump’s White House. The book “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in The Trump White House,” will be published on October 5.
“Stephanie has secrets about Trump that even the first lady doesn’t know,” a source told US news site Politico. “Secrets that he doesn’t want her to know. They will be in this book.”
Melania had arranging crockery for a White House photoshoot as the mob attacked, and only five days later released a statement saying that she “absolutely” condemned the violence and called for “healing” ahead of her husband’s last day in office on January 20.
Melania’s 600-word statement appeared to have been put together quickly, despite the five-day delay.
It was riddled with careless errors, even mis-spelling the name of the Air Force veteran who was shot dead by police as she broke into the Capitol.
The statement spent as much time complaining about another of Melania’s former friends, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who had written an editorial for The Daily Beast which accused Trump of “enticing” his supporters into besieging the Capitol building.
And Grisham, who had previously defended Melania, now say she’s like Marie Antoinette. She’s like “the doomed French queen,” Grisham says. “Dismissive. Defeated. Detached.”
After the publication of the book was announced, Melania issued an immediate response, saying in a statement: “The intent behind this book is obvious. It is an attempt to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behaviour in the White House.
"Through mistruth and betrayal," Melania adds "Grisham] seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump.”
