Melania Trump was "in tears" on election night: New book

Melania Trump was horrified at the prospect of becoming First Lady and on election night "was in tears — and not of joy," according to an excerpt of Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside Trump's White House" published in NY Magazine.

Wolff writes that Melania "had been assured by her husband that he wouldn't become president," and could "return to inconspicuously lunching." Wolff also writes that President Trump and Melania have separate bedrooms in the White House, "the first time since the Kennedy White House" that such an arrangement has been maintained.

  • Per CNN's Jim Acosta, a spokesperson for Melania said: "Mrs. Trump supported her husband's decision to run for President and in fact, encouraged him to do so. She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did."
