First Lady Melania Trump doesn’t much care for the holidays at the White House, according to a newly released recording of a private conversation.
In a secretly taped July 2018 exchange shared by her former close friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, she said: “I’m working like—my ass off—on Christmas stuff, you know? Who gives a f–k about Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”
Wolkoff shared the recording while speaking with CNN late Thursday. Wolkoff has written a book about her friendship with the First Lady and its abrupt ending, Melania and Me. President Trump’s Justice Department and lawyers representing Melania have threatened Wolkoff with legal action to suppress the book to no avail. Wolkoff helped plan the presidential inauguration for Trump and is now aiding a federal probe into the event.
