Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, former friend and first aide to First Lady Melania Trump, has written a tell-all book about her 15-year long relationship with the Trumps, her time working in the White House, as well as her very public dismissal from her position in February 2018. Called Melania and Me, the book is set to be published later this year on 1 September.
As the BBC reports, Wolkoff left her position in the White House following accusations of profiteering from President Trump’s inauguration, accusations Wolkoff denies, saying she was “thrown under the bus”.
It’s said her company was was given $26 million (£20 million) in payments to help plan the 2017 inauguration and events, though she maintains her business “retained a total of $1.62 million”.
A description of the book published in Vanity Fair reads: “In her memoir, Wolkoff chronicles her journey from their friendship that started in New York to her role as the First Lady’s trusted advisor to her abrupt and very public departure, to life after Washington.”
Wolfkoff’s book is just one of several controversial books about Trump’s first term in office that is set to be published during his re-election campaign, in the run up to the November elections. Other books that may prove damaging to Trump’s campaign includes Former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s The Room Where It Happened which reportedly paints an image of Trump as an ignorant leader desperate for re-election, and is set to be published on 23 June.
As we recently reported, Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, is also publishing an exposé of the Trump family, despite efforts from the family to prevent its publication. Called Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, the book states it will highlight the toxic nature of the Trump family, and is released on 14 July.
Like most information about Trump, it’s difficult to separate the fact from the fiction, but no doubt there are plenty of people who will be eager to read these books.
