Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'

"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea. That's just one of the anecdotes written in the new book by Stephanie Winston walk-off Cough farmer friend an adviser to first lady Melania trump smoke off. Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.

"From the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. I also received a sealed order issued by the US District Court for the southern district that prohibited from disclosing among other things. The fact of my subpoena for one hundred eighty days. I couldn't breathe a word to anyone for months because this had to be kept confidential from the inaugural committee and from the White House. The investigations were underway and they could no I wasn't allowed to tell anyone and that included Melania. On December thirteenth two, thousand, eighteen, the news came out that Manhattan federal prosecutors had opened a criminal probe into the inauguration spending and into whether some of the committee's top donors traded cash for access to the trump administration. The accounting didn't delineate where and how the donations had come in. Investigators were looking into whether extravagant donation packages offered facetime with officials, and if selling access explained the trump inauguration record shattering one, hundred, seven, million, dollar cost fifty million dollars more than any other inaugural effort. She says quote my second subpoena came from the House Permanent Select Committee on intelligence the third subpoena came from the District of Columbia I cooperated fully with both these investigations are still underway. On January twenty, second twenty, twenty, the Attorney General's office filed suit against the inaugural committee and the trump international hotel the charge misuse of nonprofit funds, which they used to pay outrageous fees to the families owned business. DC's Attorney General Carl Racine stated district. Law requires nonprofits to use their funds for the stated purpose not to benefit private individuals or companies. The suit cited emails between me gates. The details are stomach churning the hotel wanted to charge the inaugural committee three point six, million dollars for event space food and drinks over eight days. The inaugural events only spend four days. The amount of four hundred and fifty thousand dollars per day was quote significantly more than the trump hotels internal pricing guidelines for use of this event. Space Perth the lawsuit. The trump organization called the lawsuit, a PR stunt and vigorously denied any wrongdoing. There was no comment publicly from team Tom Berek. But Stephanie. Stephanie, Winston, walk-off writes in her new book quote I can say now that my official comment. You go DC Attorney General Carl Racine. She says quote I wish I could say cooperating with three different investigations is empowering it isn't. It keeps me involved in something I wanNA have nothing to do with my family would love for me to wake up one morning and say I'm over at time to move on. So would I?

"What I'm really interested in here. Is that this book is the first explanation at any length that we have ever had of what went so haywire in the trump inauguration. Which is newly relevant given that one of the major figures in the trump inauguration is reportedly about to be indicted. Its newly relevant because with five months, we're going to have another inauguration, and if it's another trump like the last one, we should probably have some legal aid lawyers on standby. It's also alive and relevant right now because multiple prosecutor's offices apparently have open cases right now related to alleged criminal financial wrongdoing having to do with the trump inauguration in two thousand, Seventeen Stephanie Winston walk-off was intimately involved in planning that inauguration, and in this book, she explains that she is cooperating with three different prosecutor's offices on three different open cases related to the trump inaugural right now. And you remember the basic issue here. Right. We covered this extensively perhaps more than any other national news outlet. The Obama inauguration after he was elected in two thousand and eight that was for for lots of reasons, the largest effort, presidential inauguration, and US history they raise the most money for that as well. More than fifty million dollars. That was a huge sum. No inaugural had ever been that bigger that expensive but it was the biggest ever. The trump inauguration after he was elected in two thousand sixteen was was not on the same scale not by a long shot it was just smaller. It was it was inevitably going to be smaller and there were fewer events even the performances were just. On a smaller scale and for smaller numbers of people I mean instead of like you know Bruce Springsteen and beyond say in two thousand nine, they had like the piano guys and Dj Ravi drums and some other kind of. I mean no offense but you know like not. Not, the same type of thing and that it's fine it's fine. I don't say that to cast aspersions. But the much smaller trump inauguration with fewer events with much smaller crowds and with events that were all it's sort of a lower register. There's just no way that it cost more than double what the Obama inaugural cost in two, thousand nine. There's no way it was more than twice as expensive as the most expensive inauguration in history. But that's what they have said about it. Mid Obama raised and spent fifty million dollars in two thousand nine. Trump's inaugural raised over a hundred and seven million dollars. And nobody knows what they spent it on. Nobody's ever been able to say where exactly all that money went because it does not seem to have gone into just paying for that event. And when you look at who was in charge of the financials. Maybe in retrospect shouldn't be all that surprising that there seems to be a little bit of a financial block box. They're the treasurer of the trump inaugural is someone who was named as an Unindicted Co conspirator in a major tax fraud case on Wall Street. The vice chair of fundraising for the inauguration was the aforementioned Elliott Brady who the Washington Post reports. Tonight is about to be indicted on federal influence peddling charges the deputy chairman of the inaugural committee was Rick Gates who pled guilty to multiple felonies became a cooperating witness in the Mueller investigation you might remember him admitting an open court under oath that it's possible. He did steal some of the trump inaugural money when he was the deputy chairman of it. Tom Barrack was the inaugural chairman. Mr Barrot has also reportedly been looked at by federal investigators potential influence peddling charges though I should say that he has not been charged. But With that what looks now in retrospect like this rogues gallery running the inaugural, running a particularly the financial side of the inaugural. What it came to people trying to track down what appears to be tens of millions of dollars missing from the inaugurals balance-sheet. Somehow all the public blame was directed at none of those guys all the public blame was instead directed at. Milania, trump's Stephanie. Not on any of those guys with their deeply erred backgrounds who had actually handled all the money. Do Seventy. was to walk off was friends with trump for years she had organized the met gala in New York and Fashion Week events in New York she was an experienced event planner at the highest levels. She did form a company that did work on the inaugural after being asked to do. So by Mrs Trump, her company that she formed for the inaugural was paid twenty, six, million dollars each. But she says that twenty five, million dollars of that ish was money that she passed onto other companies that handled the broadcast production for some of the inaugurations major events. Nevertheless, she got headlines like that one and she got all the Public Blaine. And the question remains whereas all the money anyway. Let me read you something from her book. The. Inaugural Committees Budget Director Heather Martin reported that the inaugural committee had filed several filing extensions which had delayed releasing the committee's public facing tax form. It's form nine ninety for nearly a year heather stated her mission and bring us all together. We want to be prepared to mitigate any negative press that form nine ninety release might generate for the first lady she said. Winston walk-off says quote I was on the edge of my chair with anticipation I had known this day would come. But why was this about Melania heather walk us through the inaugural committee year long process of preparing the form nine ninety, she told us she'd been working with Tom, barrack with Treasurer Douglas, Amerman unindicted co-conspirator Guy, and also Rick Gates on the preparation of this tax form. Despite Rick Gates indictment, he was still involved in the filing of the nine nine hundred. My spidey senses were going full tilt. I was practically a tarantula by now have their explained. It's taking longer than they expected I asked why apparently Tom Barrack and Douglas. Ehrman were having a rough time preparing the form because the actual numbers didn't add up. That set off a sudden headache for me. The numbers were the numbers. Why.

First Lady Melania Trump reaches out to families suffering from pandemic: "You are not alone"

"What can the Republican convention add to the image of a president who's put himself in constant public view for years? Republicans are giving their best answers to that question. Days after unveiling the replanting of the Rose Garden, the first lady used it as the backdrop for a political speech last night, turning federal property to her husband's personal political use. Melania Trump acknowledged the crisis over shadowing the president's reelection campaign. I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless. I want you to know you're not alone. My husband's administration will not stop fighting. Until there is an effective treatment or vaccine available toe everyone NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson was listening to Mrs Trump in the various other speakers and is on the line, Mara. Good morning. Good morning, Steve. What stood out for you there about what Melania Trump had to say. What stood out for me was she didn't downplay the situation with the pandemic. She didn't call it an offensive nickname. Like the China virus. She tried to make it clear the president takes it seriously something he doesn't always convey herself, she said. Quote. I don't want to use my time attacking the other side that just divides the country. And she also said, instead of tearing things down, let's reflect on our mistakes. So I think it was a message pretty clearly aimed at suburban women, very key grope group. Many of them have drifted away and Melania Trump was trying to make it easier for them to come back to Trump. These are the people Trump calls Suburban Housewives of America. The other thing that stuck out for me was that she was speaking before a live crowd in the Rose Garden, a place that's not supposed to use for partisan political events, and that raised some ethical and legal concern. And we'll just note that you're speaking before a live dog, which is totally fine with the live time. It's totally fine, eh, So we'll just go on here. I want to note you said the ethical issues she's in the Rose Garden. Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state. Spoke from Jerusalem, he said. It's on my own time. But of course he was on an official trip. How serious are the legal issues? I think this is more of a political problem than a legal problem of the House. Democrats say they will launch an investigation. It's interesting because Pompeo recently signed a memo saying that State Department officials should not speak for or against a partisan candidate. And they shouldn't attend a political convention. But mixing official duties and Partisan politics has become a feature, not a bug of the Trump administration and Trump himself busted through a few more Norm's last night because he conducted two official acts as part of the convention program. There was a video of the president's signing a pardon of a convicted bank robber that pardoning obviously is part of his constitutional powers, and he attended a naturalization ceremony. This at a time when the administration has pretty much stopped Naturalization ceremonies because they don't want to do them on zoom. I want to note that the president ran is an outsider as president, he has continued to pose as if he's not really in charge of the government. That's the tone a lot of the speakers have taken. How is this working? I think they're trying to present us kind of split track message portray him as an outsider. Biden is the establishment but still showcase all the trappings of power. I thought the first two nights of the convention were an exercise in methodically addressing trumps deficits on character, Race Cove it and the economy and I think they painted a pretty effective portrait. It just bore very little resemblance to the Things we see from the president on a daily basis. The tweeting the airing of grievances theater axe on his enemies. So the big question for me is who's watching whose minds are still open to be changed and is the hole that the president has dug for himself too deep. For him to get out of

This president has led bold initiatives in nearly every corner of the world. The Pompeo speech, along with a pre taped naturalization ceremony from the White House, are being criticized by government watchdog groups and Democrats who cite the Hatch Act, which is a federal law that's supposed to separate political and government functions.

First Lady Melania Trump reaches out to families suffering from pandemic: "You are not alone"

"Morning. What can the Republican convention add to the image of a president who's put himself in constant public view for years? Republicans are giving their best answers to that question. Days after unveiling the replanting of the Rose Garden, the first lady used it as the backdrop for a political speech last night, turning federal property to her husband's personal political use. Melania Trump acknowledged the crisis over shadowing the president's reelection campaign. I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless. I want you to know you're not alone. My husband's administration will not stop fighting. Until there is an effective treatment or vaccine available toe everyone NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson was listening to Mrs Trump in the various other speakers and is on the line, Mara. Good morning. Good morning, Steve. What stood out for you there about what Melania Trump had to say. What stood out for me was she didn't downplay the situation with the pandemic. She didn't call it an offensive nickname. Like the China virus. She tried to make it clear the president takes it seriously something he doesn't always convey herself, she said. Quote. I don't want to use my time attacking the other side that just divides the country. And she also said, instead of tearing things down, let's reflect on our mistakes. So I think it was a message pretty clearly aimed at suburban women, very key grope group. Many of them have drifted away and Melania Trump was trying to make it easier for them to come back to Trump. These are the people Trump calls Suburban Housewives of America. The other thing that stuck out for me was that she was speaking before a live crowd in the Rose Garden, a place that's It's not supposed to use for partisan political

"And there's a big story out here. Today Melania Trump and her parents and a bunch of different news sources CNN NPR and others are saying that, Melania Trump use the visa opposed by her husband to get her parents citizenship and what they're talking about here is the family chain migration that we've had for, a while now that a lot of people are saying we need to. Change. And I'm one, of them because the way China. Chain. Migration has been going is that people have been able to bring in their spouse in their minor children which I think, must be sure you want. To keep, your family together okay you came over bring your spouse and your children okay but then they've, been bringing their parents and then they've been bringing their brothers, and their sisters and their aunts and uncles. And their nieces and nephews I mean some of this chain. Migration has gone really far and. So President Trump and some Republicans saying you know. What we should shift away from the chain migration and we should move to merit based immigration now we're not saying get rid of all All chain migration. In. Fact the USA, today had peace several months ago. And. They were talking about this in the framework for that the White House is laid out is that you would limit the, family based immigration to spouses. And minor, children so you could still bring in your spouse and your children if they're still minors and, that's it for that type of immigration well if that was, in place now Malani wouldn't be able to. Bring in her parents so he's a hypocrite Well that is a way, to look at you could say that absolutely but. You could also say He's, not. Being a hypocrite at all Because the the the plan that they presented would kick in only after about four million undocumented, people currently on family. Based waiting lists the backlogs are processed And that will, take over a decade So if you really want, to say Trump will be a, hypocrite it would be if he said I want to end it all right now and everybody on the waiting list can't get in and then he let his in laws. In that would be? Your true hypocrite what do you think eight hundred eighty one eighty nine ninety. Nine get.

"Rubs people wrong but i wonder if there's some sexism baked into that absolutely i mean the first lady is largely an a and i had tears as her but she is neccessary you know she is a backdrop she is there to humanize the president in a she is there to personalize him she is the outreach and that is you know as both larnaca have pointed out an incredibly powerful role it is very important if you are the leader of a country you are constantly making a controversial if you're donald trump is debated decisions you have to appear in a certain way and your wife is there the first lady is there to be the flip side of that show the country what you know you're like inside the the the house you know what you're like at the breakfast table and melania trump has largely not played that role she has refused to do it and that makes her both you know subversively interesting to a large number of people and mr us i wonder if by way of wrapping up our conversation we he gets a one more comment from nicky who was listening in long beach california mickey wright's i am in no way a trump supporter however i do feel that every girl in woman in the us has the right to car for own path in this world to shape her own destiny and to achieve her own individual goals malania should not be expected to play the role of first lady if that's not something something she feels equipped or compelled to do if my husband became president tomorrow i would still be a speech language pathologist because working with children with disabilities is my purpose in life i wonder if by way of wrapping up lauren right you could react to that briefly how mrs trump is handling this role and whether she may be as little shrewd and kind of doing it her own way she is any no this is something kate and i have both written about recently she is in carving her own path and she is breaking the mauled by not doing everything to make the white house look good but i think we have to be careful on these conversation.

"Near the top with actors and other a political figures so they carry a tremendous amount of soft power and there is no requirement that they play a public role yes but what we're seeing with mrs trump and what vanessa noted is that when you don't appear that often in public appearances you do make account for so much more they're just more heavilyweighted and so what makes malania trump different as she hasn't really appeased people helped the administration by tweeted taking advantage of this low hanging political fruit which are interviews with the first lady tours of the white house she is not true chosen to really help out the administration in that way and that's certainly different from what we've seen especially hillary clinton laura bush michelle obama because of goods through poipet michelle mood michelle tweeted malania silences boost on selfpreservation and prudence she doesn't really want people partner about her employment history or focusing on her reactions to her husband's behavior malania is keeping her head down and trying to protect herself and her son kate that also goes to one of the key roles of first lady which is as first mother i mean the the obop the bushes had their fair share to deal with with their daughters the obamas with their daughters particularly bringing in michelle obama's mother mary nandes of ms anderson and say ms robinson excuse me marion robinson marion anderson was an opera singer mary robinson and saying that she was there to help raise molina and sasha's so first wife as first mother is a big part of it absolutely and i was surprised in this president state of the union he did not point anything out specifically about malania on her role i taking care of their 11yearold son barron an app rock obama's first state of the union he praised his wife let's move campaign and there was a standing ovation.

"In terms of the way that malania trump has intersected with some of the controversies around donald trump back in two thousand eleven she echoed donald trump's stance on brock obama presenting his birth certificate here's part of what she said let me they easy president obama just so at an agent ongoing is not on earth who wants to see at american who voted for him and who devotedly they want to see that those melania trump speaking back in 2011 ultimately the president did produce his birth certificate spoiler alert he is a us citizen and then after the access hollywood scandal in which donald trump said vile things about being able to grab women in their private parts by dint of his wealth and power here is what mrs trump said after that as you can see from the tape the cameras we're not on it was only and mike and i wonder if they even knew that the mic was on because there there were a kind of a a boy talk and died he was lead on like add on from uh the host to say uh dirty and bed staff kid anderson brouwer how'd you see milania is trump's trump's roll in these various scandals will i you know hillary clinton said no one knows what it's like live in the white house until you've you've done it and i think there is a learning curve there and i think that milania trump you know yes people criticise her for essentially being a birther but i think once she became first lady saw with this fish bull environment is like and the pressures that surround it i'm she has more sympathy i think for these other women interesting how few of you have a high opinion of the first lady nancy tweeted she's arm candy caught at the wrong time in a role she is singularly illsuited to play as is her husband she may be very nice but she is out of her depth in every way but hey at least she's rich and she gets to work.

"Adams that was the wife of john quincy adams the sixth president is that right yes or malania trump has talked about what her role as first lady might be like if donald trump were to get elected here she is from an interview back in two thousand fifteen and they volunteered he's now many many charities involving children involving many different diseases and i will ease the time comes i will choose what is dear to my heart and a work on that 100 percent those malania trump speaking in 2015 lauren right how would you describe the role of the first lady of the united states is what we heard from mrs trump in that clip pretty much the nature of it or are there other expectations oh gosh you know it's such a tough tight rope walk that's how i would characterize at bees first ladies are among the most visible political figures in the country they're the most admired the most scrutinized and there are expected to adhere to these contrasting images of a role model woman and someone who can be provocative of someone who's interested in politics but not to political or controversial and all of these sort of paradoxes are reflected not only in their issues that they choose as mrs trump was just discussing uh but what they say in public and really wet how we judge them it's a it's a really really tough spot to be an and you know every first lady has to figure out how to navigate it for herself vanessa friedman what about the first lady's look we i think we view this differently now in the age of electronic media for sure from you know from drift please wife jackie all we 42 now but what about the fashion aspect of first lady is that something that we're putting much more attention on because of who malania trump use and was or do you think that's kind of.
