Melania wanted a different 'financial arrangement' with Trump to go to White House: report
Remember when First Lady Melania Trump was hesitant to go to the White House after Trump became president? She stayed with her son Barron throughout the school year in New York and rumors were abound that she was not thrilled to soon be living on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington D.C. Well, it turns out she really wasn't.
A new book by Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan reveals that she used her delay in reporting for duty to the White House in order to renegotiate a prenuptial agreement she has with President Trump. We're most likely referring to more money, of course. Those negotiations took awhile because she didn't end up moving her belongings until June 2017, several months after the inauguration.
It has been reported that Trump has paid his ex-wives on a sliding scale, depending on how long they stay in the relationship. It's unclear exactly how much she is receiving but that number is sure to have sky-rocketed in recent years. There has never been a divorce while a president has been in office and we're willing to bet Trump doesn't want to be the first one. At least, not if he can make the "art of the deal."
Trump has already gone through two divorces and he's a pro at prenuptial agreements. He's even publicly commented about them on more than one occasion.
“It’s a hard, painful, ugly tool. Believe me, there’s nothing fun about it. But there comes a time when you have to say, ‘Darling, I think you’re magnificent, and I care for you deeply, but if things don’t work out, this is what you’re going to get,’” he said.
Melania's agreement also probably stipulates that she isn't allowed to talk about her marriage with Trump should they ever get divorced. That was a tactic he used with second wife Marla Maples to keep her quiet.
“The beautiful thing is that she agrees with it. She knows I have to have that,” Trump reportedly said.
