Melania Trump, or Rapunzel who stood in the tower
Stephanie reveals that Melania never went down to the offices where she worked. She tells how they exchanged a conversation with him and took orders across the stairs or at the elevator door. Melania was considered by employees as Rapunzel, as she stayed in the apartment all the time. Like the isolated princess in the tower. Melania attached great importance to self-care which included especially the many hours of sleep. She never woke up before 10 o'clock in the morning.
Melania called Ivanka the Princess
There was an obvious animosity between the two even though in public they managed to manage it well. Melania called her "princess" behind her back, while employees called Ivanka and her husband Jared "interns". Melania could not stand the fact that Ivanka was dying to behave like the First Lady. He did not even want to take them with him on a visit to England. Even after they left, Melania made sure neither Ivanka nor her husband were in the spotlight.
Melania was furious after the news that Donald Trump had betrayed and sexually abused several women
Grisham recounts how Melania got on the phone and asked the driver to go to a helicopter earlier than Trump. She did not want to go at once with the man who had disappointed her.
