Melania Trump’s Chief of Staff, Stephanie Grisham, claimed that Melania Trump refused to call for calm or condemn the violence that occurred on January 6th after posting what was allegedly a screenshot of their text conversation.
She allegedly asked Melania if she wanted to tweet that “Peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlesness and violence” to which Melania allegedly replied “No.”

Melania did not pull punches against Grisham, saying that it is “evident that Grisham’s recent betrayals are a last-ditch attempt to resuscitate her ruined career and reputation.”
She also said that she would have gladly condemned the violence at the January 6th protests had she known about it.

Former First Lady Melania Trump said Thursday that she was not aware of the events taking place during the U.S. Capitol breach on Jan. 6, 2021.
“On January 6, 2021, I was fulfilling one of my duties as First Lady of the United States of America, and accordingly, I was unaware of what was simultaneously transpiring at the U.S. Capitol Building,” Trump told Fox News.
She added that “it was my obligation to record the contents of the White House’s historic rooms, including taking archival photographs of all the renovations.”
“Several months in advance, I organized a qualified team of photographers, archivists, and designers to work with me in the White House to ensure perfect execution,” she continued. “As required, we scheduled January 6, 2021, to complete the work on behalf of our Nation.”
Trump also cast doubt on claims made by her former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, who has often criticized former President Donald Trump and the former first lady after they left office.
