Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claims that Melania Trump intends to divorce President Donald Trump as soon as he is out office and that she uses her fashion choices to “punish” her husband is bogus, the first lady’s spokesman told the Washington Examiner Monday.
“It’s disappointing to her that she is lashing out and retaliating in such a self-serving way, especially after all the opportunities given to her by the President,” Stephanie Grisham said in an email to the news outlet.
“Mrs. Trump rarely, if ever, interacted with Omarosa.”
Manigault Newman is currently promoting her book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” which is set to be released Tuesday.
In it, she alleges the president is a racist and has impaired mental acuity and says Chief of Staff John Kelly threatened her when he fired her.
According to Newsweek, she also digs into the president’s relationship with Melania.
“In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him,” Manigault Newman wrote.
“Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same purpose,” she added, referencing the first lady’s Gucci pussy bow pink blouse during one of the presidential debates in 2016 after the Access Hollywood tape came out, “and not only misdirection and distraction—strategies her husband knows all too well. I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband.”
