Omarosa's new book claims "vindictive" President Trump will "deport" wife Melania if she divorces him while he's in office
In her book detailing her time in the White House, Omarosa, a former aide to the President, said she believes Trump would deport wife Melania if she leaves him.
According to disgraced former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, President Donald Trump wouldn't think twice before deporting First Lady Melania if she ever tried to divorce him while he is in office. She made these claims in her latest book 'Unhinged'. 'Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House' is another "tell-all" book written by Omarosa in a long line of Trump-bashing publications. The former aide was kicked out of the White House for alleged "integrity violations."
According to Mercury News, a salty Omarosa writes in her book: "If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave him while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her." She somehow implied that Trump played the system back in 1996 when Melania immigrated to the US from Slovenia. However, it is hard to believe her claims as Trump met his future wife only two years later, in 1998.
"This is a man who has said he could pardon himself from the Mueller investigation. Why not pardon himself over an alleged visa payoff?" wrote Omarosa.
In the past, quite a few questions have been raised by the mainstream media with regards to Melania obtaining her EB-1 visa. However, there is nothing unusual about a top-performing model being granted the said visa, according to immigration experts.
The Trump administration has cracked down hard on undocumented immigrants in recent months, with several citizenships being stripped from those who cheated during the naturalization process. Drawing her own conclusions, Omarosa concluded that Trump intended to hold the threat of deportation over his wife's head, and hence may have had personal motivations behind the policy move.
"Since Donald is fully aware of however she acquired her permanent citizenship, he could, if there were anything fishy around it, expose the methods and somehow invalidate it," wrote Omarosa. "He is a vindictive man, and I would not put anything past him."
"In my opinion," she added, "Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him."
Having said that, Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director blatantly refuted Omarosa's conspiracy theories in a statement to various outlets.
"Mrs. Trump rarely, if ever, interacted with Omarosa. It's disappointing to her that she is lashing out and retaliating in such a self-serving way, especially after all the opportunities given to her by the President," Grisham said in a statement.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Trump's bulwark who serves as the White House press secretary, dismissed the claims in Omarosa's book outright, describing it as "riddled with lies and false accusations."
