Book: Melania Trump used election to renegotiate pre-nup

There’s a new book on Melania, “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.”

According to the Washington Post, which obtained an advance copy:

When Melania Trump stayed behind in New York after her husband’s presidential inauguration, she said it was because she didn’t want to interrupt their then-10-year-old son Barron’s school year. News stories at the time concentrated on an apparent frostiness between the first couple and on the exorbitant taxpayer costs to protect Melania and Barron away from Washington.

Those stories are true, but Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan reveals in a new book that the first lady was also using her delayed arrival to the White House as leverage for renegotiating her prenuptial agreement with President Trump.

The campaign had been full of harsh news about Trump’s alleged sexual indiscretions and infidelities, from the “grab them by the p—y” Access Hollywood tape to an affair with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal; Melania learned new details from the media coverage, Jordan writes.

The incoming first lady needed time to cool off, and “to amend her financial arrangement with Trump — what Melania referred to as ‘taking care of Barron,’ ” Jordan writes in “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.”

Melania’s original prenup had not been incredibly generous, Jordan reports.

But she has been married to Trump longer than both his ex-wives and had bargaining power: Her perceived calming effect on him was so great that Trump’s pals and at least one of Trump’s adult children exhorted her to come to the White House as soon as possible.

  1. I appreciate, as always , your hard work.
    But the author (s) so called “work” will never ever look at it.
    I don’t care about many things, this is one of them.

  2. It’s hard for us Thousand-aires to understand why the very wealthy divorce at all today. They usually own multiple homes so that a separation would be the smartest move, especially when there are children involved. Why split a fortune??? Break up a family??

    Whatever legal affair predated the marriage, being the “First Lady” changed everything. She had every right to ask for a new arrangement.

  3. Who wrote this? Omid Scooby-Doo who is penning Meghan Markles’ “Finding Freedom?” Or some equally doubtful source?

    Melania never wanted to be First Lady; she wasn’t the kind of opportunist that Michelle Obama was. Let’s remember that Meesh was angry that the role of First Lady didn’t come with a salary and worked every perk she got as FIrst Lady.

    So, I don’t care about this report and I don’t believe it.

  4. As has been noted here already, Melania and Michelle may be close in the alphabet, but that’s as far as it goes. Other than being fawned over by the lickspittle media, she reminded me of that old t-v show, The Jeffersons. And when it came to perks, she took everything in sight. Melania, to my mind, is everything a First Lady should be — she’s a shining star and Trump is blessed beyond belief to have her. “Moochelle”, on the other hand, was more like the back side of the moon — dark, cold, airless, and useless.
