Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” with host Alisyn Camerota, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mary Jordan described the tension between first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump, not only when they first came to the White House, but dating back to the early days when Ivanka was only 14.

While it has already been reported that Ivanka wanted to rename the First Lady’s White House office the “First Family Office” and move in during the early days of the Donald Trump administration, Jordan, who was promoting her book “The Art of Her Deal” said there is more to it than just that.

“Let’s talk about her relationship with Ivanka, because much has been speculated about that as well,” Camerota prompted. “You write, Melania has been heard calling Ivanka ‘the princess’ out of earshot. When she was younger, Ivanka privately called Melania ‘the portrait,’ telling classmates that her father’s girlfriend spoke as much as a painting on the wall. Do they have as frosty a relationship as has been reported?”

“Yes,” Jordan replied. “I mean, by all accounts, I spoke to many people and, inside the White House, particularly at certain times, tense times, there’s been Team Melania and Team Ivanka, and there’s a lot of tension there.”

‘When Ivanka came to the White House, she really loved it immediately,” she continued. “Melania was up in New York, Ivanka all of a sudden said you know I think we should rename the first lady’s office the first family office. You know then, of course Melania put her foot down and said no way.”

“They’re both former models and they’re only 11 1/2 years apart,” she explained. “Ivanka grew up wealthy, Melania grew up very modesty and worked her way up the modeling world. At 14, Ivanka was already known. as soon as she started modeling at 14 and they’re very different, they don’t really get along and Donald Trump is often the referee.”

With withering poll numbers and a flip of control of the Senate ever more likely, Donald Trump may be preparing to end Radical Republican rule with one last big bang—a war in South America.

For over a year now, our country has been quietly building forces near Venezuela, a nation with a leftist regime that this country has long sought to upend. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a whirlwind three-day tour of Venezuela’s neighboring countries:

Published

on

With one week to go until the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump does not want to talk about the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In a frantic all-caps tweet posted Tuesday morning, the president once again ranted about all the attention the media is giving to a pandemic that has killed more than 220,000 Americans in just eight months.

"ALL THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IS COVID, COVID, COVID," the president wrote. "ON NOVEMBER 4th, YOU WON’T BE HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT IT ANYMORE. WE ARE ROUNDING THE TURN!!!"

Despite the president's claims, there is no indication that America is "rounding the corner" on the pandemic.
