According to Author, Melania Has Been Instrumental to Trump Because She Can Smell the BS

Melania Trump has taken a lot of flak since becoming First Lady. Many people argue that she doesn't seem to even want the role. She was reluctant to move to Washington D.C. with her husband, she's been reluctant to jump on her anti-bullying platform, and she's largely tried to stay behind the scenes.

According to one reporter, a friend of the FLOTUS, she's exactly where she needs to be. She's been helping Trump behind the scenes, and can spot the people looking out for themselves instead of the President.

According to Ronald Kessler's new book, 'The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game', Mrs. Trump has been doing a great service to her husband and country by working with him more behind the scenes. Kessler, who was an investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, claims that what Mrs. Trump is really good at rarely gets any attention.

Kessler says Melania is a news hound who shares important articles with President Donald Trump, both positive and negative, when she thinks he should know what people are saying. She also reads the people around Trump well.

"Melania knows who the bulls--t artists are," Steve Bannon, Trump's former White House Chief Strategist, told Kessler. "She knows the promoters, the guys looking out for themselves and not Trump, and she lets him know it."

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told Kessler that Melania is doing more for her husband than most people realize.

"She is a very powerful behind-the-scenes force," Spicer said. I don't think people fully recognize how influential she is and what a grounded political sense she has on her own... There are times when you're in the room and see it, and she'll weigh in on a decision, and it's not just a yes or no. Instead, it's, look, based on this scenario, here's what makes sense."

Spicer adds, "She always seems to have the pulse on the right move and the right person at the right time. When she weighs in, it's always spot-on. She knows where he is, where he should be, and how we could move an issue."

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's White House Counselor, speaks very highly of the FLOTUS. "Those of us who have the privilege to know her and work with her also acknowledge and appreciate how brilliant she is," she said.

"She has amazing instincts, political and otherwise. She reads people exceedingly well. Her own story as an immigrant who heard about this wonderful place called America is inspiring."

Conway explains that Melania, as an immigrant, has lived the 'American Dream'.

"She was a little girl in Slovenia and came to this country to pursue her dreams. She is a successful entrepreneur in her own right, and is a devoted wife and mother."

Mrs. Trump has gotten a lot of criticism for not being as publicly accessible as former first ladies, and for staying out of the spotlight. But according to the book, she's more instrumental behind the scenes. She’s more likely to interact with aides, discuss policy, advise on strategies.

Unfortunately, the president doesn’t always take her advice. She’s urged him to curb his Twitter habit, says Kessler, but Mr. Trump has ignored her on that.
