Melania Trump 'counting the minutes until divorce', former aides claim

Former White House aides have made the shocking claims now that Donald Trump has lost the 2020 US presidential election, wife Melania is 'counting the minutes until divorce'.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who first met Trump when she appeared on The Apprentice in 2007, went on to become Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison and has written a book called Unhinged.

Now, Omarosa has claimed the couple's 15-year marriage is over, according to the Mail on Sunday.

“Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce,” Omarosa reportedly said.

“If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her.”


Appearing on the UK TV show Lorraine last month, Omarosa also described Donald and Melania’a relationship as ‘very strange’.

“What I have observed in the last 17 years would make your head spin. Sometimes they like each other but sometimes she is repulsed by him,” she said on the program.

Back in 2016, there were reports Melania ‘burst into tears’ when Trump was first voted into the oval office, with one friend saying at the time: “She never expected him to win”.

She also didn’t move into the White House for five months, because Barron Trump 'needed to finish school'.

However, former aide Stephanie Wolkoff has claimed Melania was actually negotiating a post-nuptial agreement to give Barron an equal share of the Trump fortune.

Stephanie also called their relationship a “transactional marriage”, going so far as to allege they had separate bedrooms in the White House.

Before the election, a psychic told Yahoo Lifestyle she predicted some ‘upheaval’ in the Trump household.

Sarah Yip aka The Numbers Queen is a numerologist, palm reader and psychic, who creates charts based on the sum of a person’s date of birth.

She explained Trump is in a 3 to 4-year completion phase and “his numbers also suggest changes in his home life (peaking March-April-May 2021) due to his 6 Personal Year”.

“Melania and Barron Trump also have upheaval in their charts during this period,” Sarah told us.

“This could suggest a move in residence and/ or family and marriage transitions. If Trump loses the 2020 election, he may leave the US as he has said.”
