Melania Trump has once again slammed her former chief of staff Stephanie Grisham – as a former aide claims Donald Trump “disrespected” a young female staffer at the White House.
“The writer is doing her best to restore her tarnished reputation by manipulating and distorting the truth about Mrs. Trump,” the former first lady said in a statement. Statement on Monday. “Ms. Grisham is a deceitful and troubled person who is untrustworthy.”
That same morning, ABC News published exclusive interview In which Ms Grisham discussed the “unusual interest” Mr Trump allegedly took on a female employee. Ms Grisham said she tried to keep the young woman away from the former president, but there was nothing she could do to protect him.
“I don’t know if I can have,” he said ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “There is no human resources department in the White House.”
Mr Stephanopoulos responded that she could have conveyed her concerns to the White House chief of staff.
“I didn’t feel comfortable talking to Mark Meadows,” Grisham explained. “I don’t think he would have done anything. So I did everything I could to not let him be alone with me in the cabin [of Air Force One]. I tried to keep him away from trips as often as possible. I did the best I could in that environment, I think. “
The new interview comes just a day before the publication of Ms. Grisham’s book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House.

On Monday, Mr Stephanopoulos asked the former press secretary if she was promoting a culture of dishonesty in the White House.
“Yes, I was,” replied Ms. Grisham. “And I’ve pondered that and I’m sorry… now all I want is for me to somehow educate the public about White House behavior because it looks like it’s going to try to run in 2024.” Used to be. “
