First Lady Melania Trump has reportedly had enough of her husband’s erratic behavior. Melania has donned some pretty controversial clothes this past month — including an “I really don’t care” coat and a pussy-bow blouse — all of which were allegedly meant to punish Donald Trump for his behavior. Is Melania eyeing a divorce in the near future?
Trump’s former advisor, Omarosa Manigault Newman, discussed Melania’s recent fashion choices in her new memoir, Unhinged. In the book, Newman claims that Melania decided to wear a jacket with the phrase, “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” because she wanted to punish her husband for sending her to the border. The First Lady wore the jacket while visiting an immigration compound in Texas.

“It’s my opinion that Melania was forced to go to the border that day in June, essentially, to mop up her husband’s mess,” Newman wrote in her book, adding that Melania hoped the jacket would stir up more controversy for Trump.
Newman did not offer any concrete evidence in her book to back up her claims. Newman worked under Trump as an aide but was recently let go by his new Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly. Her comments did, however, strike a nerve with the White House.
Melania’s official spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, responded to the claims by saying Melania hardly ever talked with Newman while she worked as an aide. She also said that the jacket in question was not meant to send a message to anyone.
Trump: “Omarosa is a dog”
Ivanka: “my father calling a woman a dog is a low point for me”
Melania: “children do not bully”
Sarah Sanders: “Trump is not racist, his words were simply misunderstood!”
RINSE & REPEAT response.

Melania is not the only person in the White House who has reacted strongly to the allegations. Trump also released a statement shortly after the book was released. The president slammed Newman for taking advantage of her celebrity and called her out for being a “dog.” Trump also fired back at the claims that he used the n-word while filming The Apprentice, the same reality series that made Newman famous.
Melania has faced rumors of divorce ever since her husband stepped inside of the White House. It is not clear if she was trying to send a message to Trump with her clothing choices, but he was clearly angered by the allegations. Whether or not Melania is looking to divorce Trump in the coming months is yet to be seen, but their marriage has definitely seen better days.
The White House has not responded to the latest rumors surrounding Donald Trump and Melania Trump’s rocky marriage.
