  • Donald Trump reportedly prioritized Melania's Be Best campaign over Iran nuclear deal
  • The POTUS said that John Bolton's upcoming book is a compilation of lies that aims to make him look bad
  • Mary Jordan made surprising claims about the FLOTUS in her book "The Art of Her Deal"

Donald Trump allegedly prioritized his wife Melania Trump’s Be Best campaign over the removal of the United States from an Iran nuclear deal.

The President of the United States made a significant move to show Melania’s importance to him. According to John Bolton, the president's former National Security Adviser, in his upcoming book “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” he delayed the U.S. removal from the Iran nuclear deal to give way for Melania’s Be Best campaign.

Daily Mail obtained a copy of the book and learned that on May 7, 2018, the POTUS was set to remove the United States out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. However, his plans changed when he learned that the First Lady had an event on the same day.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Bolton that “the first lady had an event scheduled that day so we moved the withdrawal to May 8. Thus are weight matters of state disposed.”

The publication noted that the event Sanders was talking about was the FLOTUS’ announcement of her Be Best campaign, which promotes kindness, well-being and combating online bullying.

The White House has reportedly worked hard to block Bolton’s book. It even asked the federal court for an emergency temporary restraining order against its released on Wednesday (June 17).

“This is highly classified information and he did not have approval. Nobody has been tough like me,” Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Trump also took to social media to air his thoughts on Bolton’s book.

“Bolton’s book, which is getting terrible reviews, is a compilation of lies and made up stories, all intended to make me look bad,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“Many of the ridiculous statements he attributes to me were never made, pure fiction. Just trying to get even for firing him like the sick puppy he is!”

Meanwhile, Mary Jordan made several surprising claims about the FLOTUS in her book “The Art of Her Deal.” Several sources told her that Melania is indeed very influential in the White House. In fact, the POTUS listens to her.

“Melania is very behind-the-scenes but unbelievably influential,” said Sean Spicer, the president’s first White House press secretary.

“She is not one to go in and say, ‘Hire this person, fire this person.’ But she lets the president know what she thinks, and he takes her views very seriously.”
