Stephanie Winston Wolkoff‘s highly-anticipated memoir, “Melania & Me,” is set to hit stores soon and in it, the First Lady’s former adviser is spilling details about the relationship between Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Donald Trump.
First, the book reveals that the First Lady apparently refers to Ivanka as “princess.”
Then, Stephanie wrote about what happened ahead of the inauguration nearly four years ago.
“Ivanka texted me a photo of Barack Obama’s swearing-in, his hand on the Bible, Michelle, Malia, and Sasha standing to his left. She wrote, ‘FYI regarding the swearing in. It is nice to have family with him for this special moment,’” an excerpt from the book reads.
“Instead, Melania and I launched Operation Block Ivanka to keep her face out of that iconic ‘special moment.’ To plan this, I needed to know exactly where the family would be seated and the camera angles. One of the WIS executives sent me notes from the walk-through. He had been prohibited from taking pictures; instead, he’d drawn a sketch to give me a decent overview of the Trump section and where the chairs would be positioned in a semicircle around the dais. We knew where the cameras would be located because the platforms were already in place. Using his sketch, we were able to figure out whose face would be visible when Donald and Melania sat in their seats, and then when the family stood with Chief Justice John Roberts for Donald to take the oath of office. If Ivanka was not on the aisle, her face would be hidden while she was seated. For the standing part, we put Barron between Donald and Melania and made sure that Don Jr. stood next to Melania, not Ivanka,” the excerpt continued.
“We were all exhausted and stressed out. Yes, Operation Block Ivanka was petty. Melania was in on this mission. But in our minds, Ivanka shouldn’t have made herself the center of attention in her father’s inauguration,” the excerpt continued.
