Ivanka and Melania Were Locked in a 'Power Struggle' [View all]


Ivanka and Melania Were Locked in a ‘Power Struggle’
February 25, 2024 at 8:02 am EST By Taegan Goddard

“Former first lady Melania Trump spent her four years in the White House waging a war against Ivanka Trump — only taking breaks to renegotiate her pre- and post-nuptial agreements with her presidential husband,” the New York Post reports.

“The pair had a four-year ‘internal power struggle’ to fill the role of first lady, which Ivanka had tried to assume when Melania didn’t immediately move into the Executive Mansion at the start of Donald Trump’s term, according to an early viewing by The Post of Katie Rogers’ forthcoming book American Woman: The Transformation of the Modern First Lady, from Hillary Clinton to Jill Biden.”

“Ivanka reportedly planned to revamp the Executive Mansion’s East Wing while Melania stayed behind in New York to ensure that her son Barron, who was 10 at the time, could finish out the school year. The eldest daughter had plans to more or less eliminate the first lady’s position by overtaking her quarters, so it could be ‘geared to serving the entire First Family, not just the First Lady,’ Rogers, a New York Times White House reporter, wrote.”
