Melania Trump was in no rush to move into the White House. That's when she renegotiated her prenup

Melania Trump was in no rush to move into the White House. That’s when she renegotiated her prenup, a new book says.

When Melania Trump stayed behind in New York after her husband’s presidential inauguration, she said it was because she didn’t want to interrupt their then-10-year-old son Barron’s school year. News stories at the time concentrated on an apparent frostiness between the first couple and on the exorbitant taxpayer costs to protect Melania and Barron away from Washington.

Those stories are true, but Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan reveals in a new book that the first lady was also using her delayed arrival to the White House as leverage for renegotiating her prenuptial agreement with President Trump.

The campaign had been full of harsh news about Trump’s alleged sexual indiscretions and infidelities, from the “grab them by the p---y” Access Hollywood tape to an affair with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal; Melania Trump learned new details from the media coverage, Jordan writes.

The incoming first lady needed time to cool off, and “to amend her financial arrangement with Trump — what Melania referred to as ‘taking care of Barron,’ ” Jordan writes in “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.”

1. How utterly unsurprising this news is ... many people would've done this under the

circumstances ...

2. Once a paid

sex worker. always a paid sex worker even if there is no sex. She has been SUCH a great asset to tRump, worth every dollar (not!) Two of a kind, always looking for the money. Most women would have left him, but she has a price on her person as usual. What a miserable way to live.

4. Makes me wonder how alike she is to him

How much money of ours she's embezzled for herself? When they look into it I think they will find out lots of things we didn't know she was part of. trump corrupts people or gets dirt on them to hold over them , and he probably knows things on her too. She might have a lot on him too.

5. I read...

that her father is almost exactly like Trump, an authoritarian bigot. So I guess she had Daddy issues to start with. It's a wonder she isn't wearing a dollar stuffed G-String, swinging from a brass pole somewhere. I guess in her own way she is.

7. "She is . . . much more like him than it appears," Jordan adds.

From the article:
For her book, Jordan conducted more than 100 interviews, with everyone from the first lady’s Slovenian schoolmates to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, and she lays out an argument that Melania Trump is as devoted to her own mythmaking as her husband is to his.

“Both are avid creators of their own history,” Jordan writes, arguing that the #FreeMelania hashtag ought to be retired because of her consistent support of her husband and her moves to stay in the White House.

3. Utterly. And "taking care of Barron." That does fall to her.

He got bad draws in both parents, and hope he's mostly okay. But Trump's a disordered creep who's extremely capable of leaving one or more of his children nothing out of spite.

6. "Taking care of Barron."

There is so much wrong with that sentence.

She needs to “take care of Barron” because she knows his father won’t.
