The quick tempo of the information cycle, together with the President and first girl’s coronavirus prognosis, the worldwide pandemic, financial disaster and the forthcoming US presidential election may have overshadowed a lot of the e-book’s fallout. But with the brand new essay, Trump is really renewing give attention to what she describes as Wolkoff’s “salacious claims.”
Wolkoff’s e-book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” particulars the fallout from Wolkoff’s working and private relationship with Melania Trump, together with non-public conversations between the 2.
Trump didn’t identify Wolkoff within the essay, however didn’t maintain again, claiming she “hardly knew” her.
“We all know that more often than not, information that could be helpful to children is lost in the noise made by self-serving adults. I have most recently found this to be the case as major news outlets eagerly covered salacious claims made by a former contractor who advised my office. A person who said she ‘made me’ even though she hardly knew me, and someone who clung to me after my husband won the Presidency,” Trump wrote.
She continued: “This is a woman who secretly recorded our phone calls, releasing portions from me that were out of context, then wrote a book of idle gossip trying to distort my character. Her ‘memoir’ included blaming me for her ailing health from an accident she had long ago, and for bad news coverage that she brought upon herself and others. Never once looking within at her own dishonest behavior and all in an attempt to be relevant. These kinds of people only care about their personal agenda — not about helping others.”
Trump criticized the media for selecting to “to focus their coverage on pettiness over my positive work.” Trump’s chief of workers, Stephanie Grisham, linked to the story on her official Twitter account and particularly known as out information organizations.
And in an essay that solely calls the media’s consideration to the weeks-old Wolkoff e-book, the primary girl reiterated: “I would remind the media that they have the choice of focusing on our next generation.”
