Melania Trump is facing backlash for her comments. These comments came out when she was the First Lady of the United States. The recording of these comments was first made public by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in October 2020.
She was a former friend and aide of Melania. Melania had then said a wrong thing about Christmas celebrations. She said, “Give me a f****** break. I’m working like a—my a** off at Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decorations?”
Stephanie wrote the book ‘Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady‘. Melania has always sparked a controversy whether it be through her words or her dress. This comes in light of her visit with the then commander in chief to an immigration detention facility in Texas. Melania had wore a jacket which had the text “I really don’t care, do U?”
Donald Trump has tried to defend Melania Trump
Donald Trump tried to defend her actions on multiple occasions. He even said that Melania decorated the Christmas tree in different colours every year, including Red, White, and Green. The media was critical of the first lady, according to the former president. Trump, who is the front runner for the Republican party in the 2024 Presidential Election, said the following:
By the way, remember Christmas, by the way? We brought back ‘Merry Christmas.’ Nobody fights it anymore.
One of the first things I said in 2015, actually, when I was campaigning, I said, we will bring back ‘Merry Christmas.’ Because these woke department stores, they didn’t want to use the word Christmas. And they use the word Christmas now.
