Ex-communications boss Stephanie Grisham shares in her soon-to-be-published book against Donald Trump and his wife Melania.

Washington DC – Even without appearing in public, she’s still making headlines. This time, because a former employee chats from the sewing box. Stephanie Grisham, once head of communications at Melania Trump*, writes in her new book about the time after the electoral defeat of Donald Trump* in the US elections.

Excerpts from the soon-to-be-published book are already available to the US news portal Politico. Accordingly, Stephanie Grisham describes there how she corresponded with Melania Trump after the riots on January 6, 2021, instigated by Donald Trump and his followers. Grisham was Melania’s chief of staff at the time. She had previously played in a number of other roles on Team Trump: as campaign manager, deputy press officer, and communications director. Since 2015 she has been part of the MAGA movement and, according to Politico, remained that “until shortly before the end”.

She was “shocked” when she realized that Melania Trump also questioned the legitimacy of the election and believed her husband’s lies.
