According to a new book, Melania Trump, the first lady since Donald Trump became president to reconsider his marriage contract, has postponed his move to Washington.
The 2016 election campaign about Mr. Trump’s alleged prudence and sexual betrayal was in full swing; Mrs. Trump learns new details from media coverage, author Mary Jordan writes “in the art of her dealings”: Melania Trump’s Untold Story.
The book, condemned by the White House, includes the claim that Mrs. Trump wanted “written evidence” that their son Baron would be treated more equally with Trump’s three older children when it comes to money and inheritance.
Jordan, a Washington Post correspondent, wrote that the first woman wanted to settle her financial settlement with Trump to protect her and their son Baron’s economic future. Melania Trump said she wanted to wait until the end of the school year to move to Washington.
Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said the book was based on misinformation.
“Another book about Mrs. Trump contains misinformation and sources,” Crystal said in an email.
“This book belongs to the fiction genre.”
The first lady and baron, who was 11 at the time, settled into the White House in early June 2017 and in mid-2018 she seemed visibly happy, the book says.
“According to three people close to Trump, the main reason is that he reached an important and improved financial agreement with Mr. Trump, which put him in a significantly better financial position,” Jordan wrote.
“These sources didn’t know exactly how he was looking, but it just didn’t make much sense.”
