The new book, The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, written by The Washington Post journalist and not yet published, states that the wife of US President Donald Trump is very influential in political matters – “more than it seems.” On Tuesday, June 16, said the director of public relations Jordan Sean Spicer, according to Newsweek.
“Melania is very behind the scenes, but incredibly influential,” he said. According to Spicer, she often gives her husband her own opinion about political decisions, and he agrees with her – this is the first lady’s corporate identity.
According to the publication, Trump’s similar trust in his wife influenced the choice of Mike Pence, who previously served as the governor of Indiana, as vice president. The book describes how, in 2016, Melania, Pence and his wife met at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. After their conversation, Melania told her husband that Pence is not too ambitious.
According to the author of the book, this is how Trump’s wife influenced the decision of the head of the United States. Jordan writes that Pence has an advantage over his rivals: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “Melania thought he would be a loyal adviser, not an alpha,” said a source referenced by Jordan.
It is noted that the Trump couple established a trusting relationship long before the presidential election in 2016. The book also says that Melania understands Donald better than any other woman he has ever met. According to the author of the book, after the separation of Trump in 1999, Melania did not have a relationship with men, knowing that she could return her husband solely by her devotion.
On June 12, the White House called the book a lie, authored by journalist Mary Jordan, which refers to the conclusion of a new marriage contract between Donald and Melania Trump. The head of the apparatus of the first lady of the United States Stephanie Grisham said that the book “contains false information and belongs to the art genre.”
