Another former Melania Trump employee is writing a tell-all book.
Stephanie Grisham, who was White House press secretary for a time before becoming the first lady’s chief of staff, will publish I'll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House on October 5.
And, according to Politico, which has seen exclusive excerpts from the book, it doesn’t depict either Trump in a flattering light.
Grisham writes in I'll Take Your Questions Now that she asked Trump whether she should tweet that “peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence” during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.
Trump simply responded no and continued work on a photo shoot at the White House, according to the excerpt that Politico saw.
In response to the book announcement, Trump’s office issued a statement criticizing her former chief of staff.
“Through mistruth and betrayal, she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump,” it said in part.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former friend and employee of sorts of the first lady, released Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with The First Lady last fall.
