Following her husband, donald trumpFollowing the 2016 victory, Melania surprised many when she revealed her plan to remain in New York to allow Barron, then 10, to complete his school year.

According to Roger’s new book (via daily mail), this move by Melania reportedly raised Ivanka’s hopes of renovating the office space in the east wing, one that was “geared to serve the entire First Family, not just the First Lady.”

Upon learning of her stepdaughter’s plan, Melania intervened and stopped it, and soon after, Ivanka revealed that she would be taking over the position of unpaid advisor in her father’s West Wing.

However, that was just the beginning of Melania’s four-year “internal power struggle” with her stepdaughter, whom she nicknamed “The Princess.”

Inside the White House compound, the two women’s paths rarely crossed. Furthermore, they were almost never photographed or seen together and never organized joint projects or events.

According to the media outlet, Rogers’ book revealed that Melania had reservations about Trump’s other children, Eric and Don Jr. The Slovenia-born former model “did not think it was appropriate for Trump’s children to be involved in Trump’s operations.” the White House”.

Unfortunately, this was another battle she lost when Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, ended up serving as advisors in the West Wing. Eric and Don Jr. also served as key surrogates for his father during his 2016 election campaign and provided advice to Trump’s team.

Melania allegedly proceeded to share her feelings through her clothing, particularly her controversial jacket which featured the cheeky question: “I really don’t care. Do you?” written on it.

Melania donned the jacket in June 2018 when she boarded an Air Force plane to visit the Upbring New Hope children’s shelter in McAllen, Texas, which housed immigrant children who had been separated from their parents during border crossings.

Melania, who immigrated to the United States and became a citizen in 2006, was instrumental in pressuring Trump to sign an executive order ending the government’s practice of separating families at the border.

Rogers notes in his book: “In large part, the headstrong Donald had been intimidated because Melania had insisted that ripping children from their parents was wrong.”

Rogers, in her book, claims that Stephanie Grisham, a top Melania aide, revealed that after they returned from their trip to the Upbring New Hope children’s shelter, Trump took them both to the Oval Office, where he “yelled at them: and “then decided that the official explanation for the jacket would be that Melania was speaking directly to the media.”

Melania agreed with Trump’s plan, telling ABC News in an interview that the message on the jacket was “for the left-wing people and media that are criticizing me.”

“I want to show them that I don’t care. You can criticize what you want to say, but that won’t stop me from doing what I think is right,” he said at the time.

“It’s obvious I didn’t wear the jacket for the kids,” Melania said. “I wore the jacket getting on and off the plane. After the visit, I put it back on because I see how (the) media was obsessed with it.”

However, other Trump administration officials claimed that this message was directed at “the Trumps… specifically, the president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka“.

Since Trump’s departure from the Oval Office, Melania and Ivanka seem to be getting along well. The former first daughter expressed her deepest condolences to Melania following the news of the death of her mother, Amalija Knavs. She was also present at Knavs’s funeral ceremony.
