It has been noted via DNUYZ that much of Melania Trump’s White House experience was marked by what people close to her described as disappointment and betrayal from friends, aides and even members of the Trump family.
It has come to light that at times, her relationships with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, were strained, according to former aides. Since then, her former press secretary, Ms. Grisham, and a former aide and friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, have written tell-all books depicting her as icy and disengaged from the role. Those experiences pushed Mrs. Trump to retreat even further from the public, say people familiar with the family.
However, that privacy may be hard to maintain under the scrutiny of contested presidential primary and legal investigations.
Meanwhile, last week, Chris Christie slammed both Trumps for a $155,000 payment to Mrs. Trump from a super PAC aligned with her husband’s campaign. It has been noted that a representative for the super PAC said that Mrs. Trump was hired in 2021 for “design consulting,” including choosing tableware, arranging settings and picking floral arrangements.
“There’s grifting and then there’s Trump grifting,” Mr. Christie, the former New Jersey governor and most outspoken Trump critic in the 2024 Republican primary field, wrote on Twitter. “Undisputed champs.”
Most of her public profile, conducted largely through her social media accounts, is focused on selling a variety of digital trading cards. Her NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, include digital drawings of her eyes, a broad-brimmed hat worn during a state visit, White House Christmas ornaments and a blue rose intended to commemorate National Foster Care Month.
