"Give me a fucking break": Audio recordings of Melania Trump leaked by former best friend


Melania Trump was heard saying "give me a bloody break" as she talked about criticism she received of children separated from their parents on the US-Mexico border.

In new tapes released on CNN by the first lady's ex-best friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania said, “You say I'm complicit. I'm just like him (Trump), I support him, I don't say enough. I am not doing enough

& # 39; Where am I. I bet – I work like a – my a ** off – with Christmas things you know, who gives a shit about Christmas things and decorations? But i have to do it right

& # 39; Ok, and then I'll do it. And I say I'm working on the Christmas planning for Christmas. And they said, "Oh, what about the kids that they got separated?"

“Give me a bloody break. Where did you say something when Obama did that? «Melania raged in June 2018.

The first lady added, “I can't go. I tried to reunite the child with the mother. I didn't have a chance. Must go through the process and the law. & # 39;

It's not clear which mother and child Melania is talking about, but she says "We got it out, they wouldn't make the story" and refers to the press.

“It's not them, they wouldn't make history because they, they, they are against us, because they are liberal media.

“Yeah, if I do it with Fox, they'll make history. I don't want to go to Fox. & # 39;

During the same conversation, Melania appeared to say Wolkoff that she believed the children in detention camps were happy to be in US custody.

"All of these children I met are here in the shelters because they were brought into it by coyotes, the people who trafficked people – that's why they put them in jail," Melania is heard to say.

& # 39; And the kids they go to shelters. And how they take care of them. It's – you know, they even said the kids, they said, "Wow, I had my own bed? I'll sleep on the bed. I'll have a closet for my clothes?"

'It is said that way to be heard. But they didn't have that in their own countries. You sleep on the floor. They are well looked after (in prisons). & # 39;

In the audio, Melania admits that it is "sad" that the children are not with their parents before they later seem to imply that some of the asylum seekers are often making up stories that they are fleeing gang violence to play the system.

“Many mothers and children are taught how to do it. They walk over and say, "Oh, we're getting killed by gang members … It's so dangerous." So you can stay here.

"They could easily stay in Mexico, but they don't want to stay in Mexico because Mexico doesn't care about them the way America does," explains Melania.

Wolkoff said she believed Melania likely initially had maternal concern for the children who had been separated from their parents, but likely passed it by to fit into her husband's administration.

"I think, as a mother, those maternal instincts were triggered in her and she took care of them," Wolkoff said. “But there is no husband she can come to, the leader of the free world, to discuss how it makes her feel. Regardless, she steps in line and only decides that what she heard and what she was told is the rule of law in our country. & # 39;

Wolkoff also told Cooper Melania that she wore the infamous "I really don't care, you do" jacket when she visited a migrant children's prison as a publicity stunt.

"It was a publicity stunt and it was meant to get press attention to make sure everyone knew Melania was pushing the limit," said Wolkoff.

Part of the motive behind the statement, according to Wolkoff, was that the Trumps were celebrating having something about Barack and Michelle Obama, neither of whom visited the migrant camps while they were at the White House.

"They don't do things for the purpose for which good deeds are done," said Wolkoff. “Good deeds are done to do good, not for the attention one gets for doing good deeds.

"Unfortunately, this government and the people around them and this family are only doing things that benefit them, rather than all these children and people who are suffering."

During the broadcast, a clip of another conversation between Melania and Wolkoff was broadcast over the jacket.

Wolkoff hears Melania ask what made her buy it in the first place, to which the first lady replied, "I sure drive liberals crazy … and they deserve it."

In a statement to CNN, Melania's chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, beat Wolkoff for releasing the recording.

& # 39; Secretly recording the First Lady and deliberately breaking an NDA to get a great book out there is a clear attempt at relevance. The timing is still suspect – as is this endless exercise in self-pity and narcissism, "was Grisham's comment.

Wolkoff is a former Vogue magazine employee who oversaw the Met Gala and other remodeled events. He has known Melania for more than 10 years.

Wolkoff was Trump's first job for the east wing, where she was appointed senior advisor to Melania. She wrote her speeches and helped develop her “Be Best” initiative.

On September 1, she released her panacea "Melania and I: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady".

Wolkoff released her scrapbook "Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady" on September 1st.

Last month it became known that President Donald Trump's Justice Department was directly involved in an attempt to prevent Wolkoff from publishing the book.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Ethan P. Davis, the assistant attorney general of the DOJ's civil division, contacted Wolkoff's attorney on July 15, referring to a nondisclosure agreement that Wolkoff had signed for her time at Trump's 2017 inauguration and service as senior advisor the first lady.

A week earlier, The Daily Beast had broken the story that Wolkoff had published such a book and teased it as an "explosive" panacea ahead of the 2020 election.

The Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz quickly sent a letter to Wolkoff and their publisher Simon & Schuster on July 8 – the day after The Daily Beast's scoop ran.

The letter states that the book violated the confidentiality clause in a “free service contract” signed on August 22, 2017 between Wolkoff and the First Lady.

& # 39; The Service Agreement prohibits Ms. Wolkoff, among other things, from disclosing her work for FLOTUS and the First Lady's Office at the White House, as well as any information the government provides to her under this arrangement, to family or other information that (They) could learn in the course of their performance, ”the letter read, according to The Daily Beast.

The former FLOTUS adjutant's attorneys called Kasowitz's allegations "unfounded and unfounded" and argued that the free services contract was inapplicable two years later.

A week later, the DOJ sent Wolkoff's lawyers a similar letter.

"If these reports are true, the book appears to contain government information that Ms. Wolkoff has specifically promised not to divulge," said Davis' letter.

"Please confirm immediately, but no later than July 17th, that Ms. Wolkoff's book does not contain any information covered by the agreement," she continued. "If you are unable to do this, the government will take all available legal remedies."

A DOJ spokesman did not return The Daily Beast's request for comment on whether "appeals" were being pursued.

Bradley Moss, a national security attorney interviewed by The Daily Beast, stated, “If this is an agreement she signed with the government about the work she did for the first lady's office, it is not inappropriately for the DOJ to remind them of the terms of this agreement. & # 39;

"You really have to ask yourself if the DOJ really has nothing better to do with its time," said Moss Sadi.

A First Lady spokesman did not respond to DailyMail.com's request for comment.
