Melania ‘delayed White House move to force Trump to re-do prenup and ensured Barron was equal to siblings,’ book says – The Sun

MELANIA has "delayed the White House move to force Trump to re-do their prenup and ensured Barron was equal to his siblings," a new book has revealed.

The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, written by Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan, includes information about the first lady retrieved from interviews with more than 100 people.

In the 286-page book, Jordan suggests that Melania used the president's appointment to ensure that her only son with him, Barron, was financially secure.

"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.

Despite the president moving into the White House in January 2017, Melania and Barron didn't move in until the June.

After moving in, on June 11, Melania tweeted: "Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home! #Movingday"

Melania's original marital agreement was not financially generous, however the book said that she managed to negotiate an agreement "more to her liking" due to the amount of time she has been married to Trump and her ability to "calm" him.

"She is… much more like him than it appears," Jordan wrote.

Back in 1997, the president told Larry King that: "I'm a big pre-nup believer, even though they're nasty terrible documents. I'm a big believer in that stuff."

However, a spokeswoman for the first lady told CNN: "Yet another book about Mrs. Trump with false information and sources.

"This book belongs in the fiction genre."

The outlet also reported that Melania's delay in moving to Washington DC was due to concern for keeping her life as normal as possible for her then 10-year-old son.

The revelations come as Trump announced that he would begin rallying again in a bid to be re-elected in 2020.

The president revealed that he is set to hold his first gathering since the pandemic in Tulsa, Oklahoma, next Friday.

During a spontaneous event at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said: "They've done a great job with COVID, as you know, in the state of Oklahoma. We're on our way to a very big comeback."

In 2016, Trump won the election in the state of Oklahoma with 65.3 percent.

However, officials have now slammed the June 19 event amid Black Lives Matter protests when "Juneteenth" marked the date American slaves were freed by Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

But the President pushed back saying the rally was supposed to be "celebratory" during a telling pre-taped interview with Fox News host Harris Faulkner, who asked if he scheduled it "on purpose."

"No, but I know exactly what you're going to say," Trump replied, before urging people to "think about it as a celebration. My rally is a celebration."

"In the history of politics, I think I can say there's never been any group or any person that's had rallies like I do," he added.

Attendees have been asked to sign a waiver saying the Trump campaign isn't liable if they contract COVID-19 at the event.
