Publisher's Summary

What Melania wants, Melania gets.

The former director of special events at Vogue and producer of nine legendary Met Galas, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff met Melania Knauss in 2003 and had a front row seat to the transformation of Donald Trump’s then girlfriend from a rough-cut gem to a precious diamond. As their friendship deepened over lunches at Manhattan hot spots, black-tie parties and giggle sessions in the penthouse at Trump Tower, Wolkoff watched the newest Mrs Trump raise her son, Barron, and manage her highly scrutinised marriage.

After Trump won the 2016 election, Wolkoff was recruited to help produce the 58th Presidential Inaugu­ration and to become the First Lady’s trusted adviser. Melania put Wolkoff in charge of hiring her staff, organising her events, helping her write speeches and creating her debut initiatives. Then it all fell apart when she was made the scapegoat for inauguration finance irregularities. Melania could have defended her innocent friend and confidant, but she stood by her man. The betrayal nearly destroyed Wolkoff.

In this candid and emotional memoir, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff takes you into Trump Tower and the White House to tell the funny, thrilling and heartbreaking story of her intimate friendship with one of the most famous women in the world, a woman few people truly understand. How did Melania react to the Access Hollywood tape and her husband’s affair with Stormy Daniels? Does she get along well with Ivanka? Why did she wear that jacket with 'I really don’t care, do u?' printed on the back? Is Melania happy being First Lady? And what really happened with the inauguration’s funding of $107 million? Wolkoff has some ideas....

Kudos to Stephanie

Stephanie's book demonstrates the Trump family/POTUS is corrupt! Obviously Melania is another Narcissist in the Trump Family. Stephanie was a pawn and sucked into their propaganda and cult, to cover up their continuing corruption and has been traumatised psychologically.

The recent books written : Michael Cohen , Mary Trump, Michael Bolton, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Michael Schmidt, James Comey, David Enrich, Jacob Soboroff, Glen Simpson, Jim Mattis, The Dangerous Case of Trump. Hoax: Donald Trump/Fox News. etc, etc. and now Bob Woodward's tapes and book RAGE...All common denominators in this Cult ...its right in front of our faces! Alarm Bells are Loud
