Trump and Melania aren't growing apart, remain 'tender lovers' who playfully tease each other, claims biographer
Doug Wead, author of 'Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency', publicly dispelled speculation that the president and the first lady might be becoming estranged
Despite reports suggesting that President Donald Trump and his wife Melania were becoming increasingly estranged as a couple, their family biographer has now claimed that there was no truth to the rumors and added that, in reality, they were tender lovers that playfully teased each other.
Doug Wead, a historian and the author of 'Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency'—which he wrote after spending two years with the Trump family—appeared on 'Fox & Friends' on Monday, October 4, and publicly dispelled speculation that the president and the first lady might be growing apart.
“They are a couple. Well, [Melania’s] so dignified and she handles herself with such grace. In every conversation, [Donald Trump] brings up Melania. Melania this, Melania that", Wead said, Sputnik News reported.
As an example, Wead brought up an instance where the Secret Service would not let her tag alongside Trump into a combat zone to address the troops.
At the time, Melania apparently argued against the arrangement and was eventually allowed to join the POTUS for the meet and greet.
“She says, 'If my husband is in danger, I will share the danger'. And so on Christmas night, they fly out together to be with the troops", Wead recalled.
Wead added that the Trump family was a close-knit unit despite being composed of so many members. And when the tensions are running high, what with Trump's job, the president still found time to make light of any situation by joking around with his wife. "Melania, honey, look at this incredible journey I have brought you on", Wead cited POTUS as saying, “And she’s like, ‘Oh yeah, thank you so much. It’s hilarious. I love it.'"
During his two years of interviewing the Trumps, Wead said that he was also let in on the president's private correspondence with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as well as Trump's personal theories about the Russian collusion conspiracy.
“There are two kinds of staffers", Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner told Wead. “Those who want to help Trump save the world, and those who want to save the world from Trump".
