Former aide to President Donald Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman opened up in a new interview.
She dished on his relationship with the First Lady Melania Trump.
Newman originally had linked up with Trump on his reality show ‘The Apprentice’, years earlier. Then later became Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison when Trump was sworn into office.
She would leave the White House twelve months later. Newman departed in January of 2018. Apparently to ‘pursue other opportunities.’ it was announced.
But following that she penned a memoir on her experience working in the Trump administration. The title ‘Unhinged’ was published in August of 2018.
As for the Trump’s marital union, she told “It’s a very strange marriage,” Then added, ‘I’m very cautious to comment on the dynamics of a marriage because you never know what goes on behind closed doors. I have known this couple since they were dating, they got married a year after The Apprentice aired.”
“What I have observed in the last 17 years would make your head spin. Sometimes they like each other but sometimes she is repulsed by him,” which she tied to the latest denial of the president’s hand by the first lady which was followed by her wiping her hand on her skirt.
The Sun tweeted a video clip dubbed, ‘Melania Trump appears to pull her hand away from Donald Trump’s as they leave the presidential debate.’

The rocky moments between them have been well-documented. A number of outsiders giving their views on the subject to main stream media. Newman only the latest to give her thoughts.
Mrs. Trump headlined a campaign event for her husband in Pennsylvania today. Her opening one of the season. With the president hoping to court undecided women voters.
But it gets even stranger than this.
Melania’s True Feelings About Donald
If you read the interviews, you’d think all is well at the house of Trump. But not so apparently.
We may have some insight into how Melania actually thinks about her husband.
One thing about Melania Trump that her former best friend, Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff has brought to the forefront is that Melania Trump was unmoved by her husband’s infidelities and accusations of sexual assault.
“He is who he is. I know who I married,” Melania once told Wolkoff.
They Haven’t Shared A Bed Since 2006
Another book that brought about many revelations on the Trump was Free Melania by author Kate Bennett. Bennett claims that Donald and Melania do not sleep in the same bed. And it may be that they don’t even sleep in the same room!
According to the report on the book from Business Insider:
The book says the president sleeps in the master bedroom on the second level of the White House residence while the first lady stays on the third floor in a two-room space that was previously occupied by former first lady Michelle Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson.
Alongside her bedroom is a “glam room,” for Trump to do her daily hair and makeup, and a private gym with a Pilates machine.
The report continues that the Trumps are the first family since the Kennedys to live apart while in the White House.
But apparently this goes all the way back to 2006, right after Melania and Donald were married in 2005, when Trump reportedly had an affair with a Playboy model who he showed Melania’s separate room in Trump tower. Wild.
Family Is The Reason for Large Rift Between Them?
In 2018, Melania’s parents were naturalized here in the United States and became citizens. But on top of that, rumor has it that Melania also shares that spare room with Barron and her parents.
The claim is unfounded, but many have reported that Melania’s parents are the reason for an ever widening gap in the marital bliss that Donald and Melania wish us to believe that they have.
Their Marriage is Reported To Be “Transactional”
As stated above, Wolkoff’s book says that the Trump’s marriage is strictly transactional. Melania got protection, Donald got the arm candy.
Given the report of them sleeping in separate rooms and you barely seeing them together except for photo ops, this claim seems to hole a lot more truth than we previously thought.
What’s The Future For Them?
We haven’t even delved into the tension that Melania reportedly has with first daughter Ivanka. But all this being said, what does the future hold for the Trumps?
With all the mounting pressure from the presidency and global scrutiny, could we see a divorce once Trump leaves office? Many think so but only time will tell.
Until then, this bizarre marriage and story will only continue to evolve. One thing is for sure, it will be very interesting to watch unfold.
Less than a week to go before Election Day.
