A newly released book about Melania Trump has revealed that the reason she took so long to move into the White House, costing taxpayers millions in extra security while she and Barron stayed in Trump Tower, was because she wanted to renegotiate the terms of her prenuptial agreement. The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan reveals that she had a “perceived calming effect” on Donald, and his friends and staffers were very eager for her to join him in D.C.

This allowed her to gain more favorable terms in the prenup, which previously “had not been incredibly generous” to her.

“According to three people close to Trump, Jordan writes, Melania had finally renegotiated the prenup to her liking,” says Jada Yuan on the book. “She had already been looking out for Barron’s future by making sure he had dual citizenship in Slovenia, which will position him to work in Europe for the Trump Organization when he comes of age.”

Melania reportedly also wanted to make sure that Barron was not left out of the “family business” when he reached adulthood.

“She wanted proof in writing that when it came to financial opportunities and inheritance, Barron would be treated as more of an equal to Trump’s oldest three children,” Jordan wrote.

The book reportedly reveals that Melania is more like her husband than many people thought, jumping on opportunities, appearing to lie about her skills and achievements, and valuing loyalty above all else. Also, a lot of people like her less now, knowing that her costing taxpayers so much money was not for Barron’s health or education but to ensure he would be as rich and privileged as the rest of the Trumps.


Throw out the whole family. They’re all bad.
