Melania Trump defended the size of Donald Trump's manhood to teasing friends,
insisting that he is a 'real man', according to a new book obtained by
The future First Lady admonished close friends when they joked Trump must have a
small penis because he has small hands, and cut in to retort: 'Don't say this -
he's a real man.'
The claim is made in a new book about Melania out today called The Art of Her
Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Washington Post journalist Mary
Other revelations made in the book include the former model, 50, sharing posing
tips with Trump to help him look better in photos.
And the mother-of-one found allegations of Trump's infidelity with former porn
star Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal so hard to deal with
during the 2016 election that she once checked into a hotel to 'get away from
ordan writes when Melania was dating Trump in the late 1990s she would chat
about him with her former roommate Matthew Atanian, a retired fashion
Atanian recalled he and Edit Molner, the girlfriend of model scout Paolo
Zampolli, were once joking about Trump having a small penis.
Melania cut in and said: 'Don't say this - he's a real man'.
Melania told Atanian similar things about Trump's over-the-top, gilded apartment
atop Trump Tower.
She gushed: 'Oh it's so beautiful. So much class. This is the way real men
Trump infamously bragged about the size of his manhood during one of the
Republican Presidential debates in 2016.
Senator Marco Rubio made a dig at Trump's small hands, prompting Trump to hold
them up and say: 'Nobody has ever hit my hands before. Look at those hands.
'He referred to my hands - if they're small, something else must be small'.
The future President added: 'I guarantee you there's no problem'.
Jordan's book is the most in-depth portrait of Melania so far and details her
improbable rise from a small town in Slovenia to become First Lady.
After marrying Trump, Melania was aware of his reputation as a ladies' man but
it became more awkward after Barron's birth.
A friend recalled them both attending a party at the Playboy mansion where
Melania was talking about her son and was 'extremely uncomfortable' as Trump
grabbed women and held them for photos.
But it wasn't until the election that Melania understood the 'extent of his
philandering' when dozens of women accused him of sexually inappropriate
Jordan writes the 'most difficult moments' on campaign were the reports about
his cheating with McDougal and Daniels.
Both claimed they had sex with him during the same weekend in July 2006 at a
golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in Nevada.
Barron, now 14, had only been born three months before that.
The book argues that Melania is far more influential and strategic than people
Jordan writes Melania has 'shared modeling tips' with Trump to help him look
better in photos.
She told him that when somebody is taking pictures he can 'tighten and define
his facial muscles by placing his tongue on the roof of his mouth'.
Melania advised Trump if he stands slightly back in a group photo, he will
appear thinner than if he is in front of others.
Before photoshoots Melania has been heard telling Trump to 'slightly lift and
extend his chin.'
The Art of Her Deal includes frank details about how Melania and Trump live,
what Jordan calls, 'parallel lives that barely intersect'.
They sleep in separate bedrooms, partly because Trump likes darker rugs and
walls and Melania prefers whites and light colors.
Also he wakes at 5am and pops the TV on immediately while she sleeps in.
Former housekeepers from Trump's golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he
frequently visits on weekends, say Trump's room is on the first floor of their
mansion on the grounds and Melania and Barron have suites on the first floor.
Staff 'never saw them have dinner together' but Melania's parents Viktor and
Amalija were by her side all the time, speaking Slovenian which Barron learned
from his mother.
Victoriana Morales, a former housekeeper, said Trump would turn up in the
evenings, Barron would play a video game and Melania was on the computer.
