The first lady can be heard expressing her frustration on being questioned about immigrant children separated from their families and Christmas decoration at the white house.
Another addition in the series of revelation bombs dropping on the White House is Melania Trump’s leaked audio tapes. On Thursday, former friend of the First Lady and an ex-east wing adviser, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff released an audio recording of Melania Trump with CNN which was recorded secretly.
The audio clip is going viral across the web where the first lady can be heard cribbing about the Christmas decoration for White House followed by undocumented children separated from their family at the border.
In the leaked audio recording, Melania Trump can be heard saying —
I’m working my a** off, Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decoration? But I need to do it, right?
Soon after she talks about the children separated from their families at the border. She says —
“Ok, and then I do it. And I say that I’m planning on Christmas planning for the Christmas,” she said. “And they said, ‘oh, what about the children that they were separated?’ Give me a f**ing break.”
The first lady Melania Trump then went on talking about the family separation issue associated with Barack Obama-
“Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?” she said.
The audio was recorded during the summers of 2018. First Lady is venting on call about repeatedly being questioned about the family separation policy introduced by her husband, President Trump. This was about the families that crossed the southern border without documents. She can also be heard frustrated about how she has to undertake Christmas decoration work at the White House which she doesn’t care about. But being the first lady, she has to do it anyway.
She further went on saying, “They say I’m complicit. I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough I don’t do enough where I am,”
On the matter of separated childer, she says, “give me a f**ing break.”
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was a good friend of Melania Trump and has also written a book about their relationship, ‘Melania and Me’.
Family Separation policies are no more the same as they were under President Barack Obama’s administration. While under Obama administration, the authorities only separated the child if they had concerns about his safety and well-being in the native country. Or if the authorities were unsure if the guardians of the child were legitimate.
However, under Trump’s administration, a child can be separated from his undocumented immigrant parents at any given circumstance.
But Wolkoff admits that Melania Trump might have maternal feelings, before the leaked audio was recorded
Wolkoff did mention that maternal sentiments about the migrant children did exist in Melania Trump bu over the time, she dissolved and adapted to the administration’s agenda-
“I think that as a mother, those maternal instincts in her were set off and she did care,” Wolkoff said:
“But there is no husband to come to, the leader of the free world, to discuss how she’s feeling about that. So regardless of that, she steps in line and she just decides that what she has heard and what she’s been told is what the rule of law is in our country.”
She further added, “On the flip side, Melania, the traditions of first lady and President have gone out the window with this couple and I feel that if there were — there is so much that could be done but, again, no support. No understanding.”
In the book ‘Melania and Me’, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has discussed numerous issues related to the First Lady’s life from her troubled relationship with Ivanka Trump to the jacket she wore in 2018 that created controversy. However, the major highlight remains the information where she reveals that Donald Trump used a private email ID in White House, both for him and the First Lady. This is an ethical taboo.
