There have been reports lately that there has been some tension in the White House lately but you always have to take those with a grain of salt. You can’t trust the media at all these days after months and months of anonymous sourced stories that have ended up being wrong. However, there’s no doubt that there is some animosity between Melania’s staff and some members of Trump’s staff.
If we’ve learned one thing about Melania Trump it’s that she’s a tough woman who isn’t going to back down from anyone.
On Tuesday, we learned that her office was calling for the firing of Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel.
From Western Journal:
Amid reports of a clash between first lady Melania Trump and Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel, the former has made a public call for the latter’s ouster.
According to Bloomberg, the first lady’s spokeswoman made it clear where Trump stands on the woman serving just below National Security Adviser John Bolton.
“It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” Stephanie Grisham said.
There were even reports that Ricardel had cleared out her desk and was escorted from the White House grounds. That report ended up being retracted after the White House denied it.
Still, a bold move from Melania.
You might remember and interview from a while back when Melania said she is aware of people in the Trump White House who aren’t loyal to her husband.
It really doesn’t look like Ricardel is going to be around much longer. The media is of course freaking out about how this is unprecedented and Melania is being petty. That’s silly. If she thinks someone is getting in the way of Trump’s agenda at the White House it’s the right thing to do to call it out.
