Melania Trump appears to be taking the same stance as her husband in attempting to block Joe Biden and his administration from any type of access to and from the White House.
Melania failed to extend an invitation to meet with Dr. Jill Biden and she has tweeted out her husband’s baseless claims of voter fraud.
Trump has made headlines across the globe for refusing to concede graciously to Biden. Now, Melania Trump is following in her husband’s obstinate footsteps by refusing to reach out to Jill Biden and arrange a meeting.
Reportedly, not only has Melania refused to meet with Biden she has also refused to congratulate the soon-to-be first lady. It is customary that the outgoing and incoming first ladies meet. Michelle Obama extended the custom to Melania.
Melania Trump is also using Twitter to push her husband’s baseless claims that Democrats “stole” the election from him.
“The American people deserve fair elections. Every legal – not illegal – vote should be counted,” Melania Trump recently tweeted. “We must protect our democracy with complete transparency.”
Despite the snub by Melania Trump, Jill Biden is said to be unaffected by the situation and is working on assembling her staff and setting up an agenda for the East Wing, which will include causes near and dear to her and her husband’s hearts such as cancer, education, and veterans.
“Dr. Biden is enormously grateful to the country for electing her husband and Senator Harris,” her spokesman Michael LaRosa said.“Joe Biden will be a President for all Americans. She is spending time with her children and grandchildren in Wilmington, Delaware.”
It is expected that Jill Biden will follow in the footsteps of Michelle Obama and former President George W. Bush‘s wife Laura, who each had 25 staff working for them to champion initiatives that spoke to their personal passions. During her tenure, Melania Trump employed a staff of ten and only championed her “Be Best” campaign.
It has been a long-standing tradition for the out-going first lady to call their newly elected replacements immediately after the election. Apparently, Trump’s aren’t much for traditions or acting like mature adults.
Melania Trump also took to the White House website recently to air her personal grievances. Trump used the White House blog to bash her former best friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who recently published a tell-all book about her relationship with the first lady.
“As a country, we cannot continue to get lost in the noise of negativity and encourage ambition by those who seek only to promote themselves,” Melania Trump wrote on the website.
“I have most recently found this to be the case as major news outlets eagerly covered salacious claims made by a former contractor who advised my office,” she added. “A person who said she ‘made me’ even though she hardly knew me, and someone who clung to me after my husband won the Presidency.”
Wolkoff not only published a book, “Melania & Me” she also released several audio recordings of conversations that she had with Melania.
In one of those recordings, Melania can be heard griping about having to decorate the White House for Christmas and about the criticism the Trump administration received for separating children from their parents at the border.
“This is a woman who secretly recorded our phone calls, releasing portions from me that were out of context, then wrote a book of idle gossip trying to distort my character,” Melania Trump wrote.
“Her ‘memoir’ included blaming me for her ailing health from an accident she had long ago, and for bad news coverage that she brought upon herself and others. Never once looking within at her own dishonest behavior and all in an attempt to be relevant. These kinds of people only care about their personal agenda — not about helping others.”
Social media users who saw Melania’s post could not believe what they read. Twitter users quickly let her know what they thought of her blog.
“Lmao omg is this for real?” Twitter user Mamabear posted.
Vote Now responded with, “Melania Trump has finally discovered her metier: Aggrieved and self-pitying short-form writing.”
“Maybe it would Be Best if you didn’t mention “self-serving individuals” hun,” tweeted Mrs. Betty Bowers.
“With respect @FLOTUS, when your house is made of glass don’t throw stones in others. The next generation is tired of a president that competes with them for attention & disagrees with them in everything: climate action, inclusiveness, tolerance vs hate, social equality. Sad,” tweeted DynaMoe.
Russell Drew tweeted, “Wow. Fresh off her coronavirus crisis, which impacted her and her immediate family, Melania Trump uses OFFICIAL government websites to attack her ex-best friend and the media. The most useless First Lady in U.S. history. Her main concern isn’t kids—it’s getting even.”

First Lady Melania Trump’s former ally has hit back following her scathing post on Friday. Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff lashed out at Mrs. Trump the next day.
She dismissed charges that they were not close friends. Much of their association is detailed in Wolkoff’s book Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady, that was released in early September.
As Wolkoff made her case by saying,“I find it puzzling that the First Lady of the United States asked someone she ‘hardly knew’ to attend her nuptials, join her for countless lunches, help plan the presidential inauguration, stay over at the White House and Mar-a-Lago, and act as her senior advisor,”
Then she claimed, “I wrote this book to share with the public my experience of working with Melania, our fifteen-year friendship, and her ultimate betrayal. This portrait is not all flattering but it’s the truth and Americans deserve the truth about the occupants of the White House.”
A real rebuke of the first lady’s remarks just prior. Mrs. Trump had alleged, “major news outlets eagerly covered salacious claims made by a former contractor who advised my office.”
The Justice Department sued the author of a tell-all book Melania Trump. The lawsuit claims that the author, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, violated a non-disclosure agreement that barred her from revealing confidential information about her work with Melania Trump.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. The lawsuit asks a judge to order the surrender of profits from the book titled “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” to a government trust.
