Donald Trump was uncomfortable and too frightened to face his wife, Melania Trump when his controversial Access Hollywood tape leaked.
Donald Trump is a confident man. However, several sources claimed that he looked nervous after seeing the controversial Access Hollywood tape and was reportedly anxious to face his spouse.
Donald Trump embarrassed by the scandal
There is a new book about Melania Trump entitled The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story. CBS News shared an excerpt from the book by Mary Jordan about the Access Hollywood tape.
In the tape, Trump was having a lewd conversation with Billy Bush about women.
After watching the video, Trump looked embarrassed. He dreaded to see Melania.
“He turned red; red was coming up his neck to his ears. I think he understood early on that it was going to create ramifications for him at home, too,” one person told Jordan.
“Everybody was saying, ‘You should go upstairs and see Melania. Why don’t you go upstairs now and see Melania?’ And he was not rushing to go up there,” New Jersey governor Chris Christie told Jordan.
“I said to him, ‘It ain’t going to get any easier. The longer you wait, it’s not going to get any easier.’”
POTUS was frightened to face Melania
According to Chris Christie, the date stamp of the video was September 2005.
At the time, President Donald Trump was already married to Melania Trump, and she was about three months pregnant with their child.
That was probably the reason, Trump was not very comfortable facing his spouse.
“That night he seemed frightened to go face his wife,” another person in the room said.
It reportedly took two hours for Trump to step into the elevator and face the First Lady.
Melania’s reaction to the controversial tape
Melania Trump remained composed when Donald Trump approached her about the Access Hollywood tape. The FLOTUS never yelled or threw anything at her husband.
Sources said Melania was furious. However, she kept her anger in control and told her husband how he jeopardized their chance at the White House.
“Now you could lose,” Melania told Trump as the scandal leaked close to the national election.
“You could have blown this for us.”
Melania and Donald Trump sparked marital feud rumors
Donald Trump and Melania Trump remain married despite the scandalous tape. However, the first couple’s marriage has been plagued with various rumors.
A few weeks ago, they sparked marital feud rumors due to an awkward photo-op.
Trump smiled while they faced the cameras during their visit to St. John Paul II National Shrine in Washington. However, Melania looked very serious.
Trump kept on smiling and said something to Melania. The First Lady then gave a fake smile to the photographers.
Some netizens speculated that Melania was not fine. Others suggested that maybe the couple was not okay.
