Private conversations that were secretly recorded revealed the way former President Donald Trump treated his wife, according to Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt, who makes his fortune from paper and packaging mills.
The conversations, accessed by prosecutors working for Special Counsel Jack Smith, show Pratt expressing admiration for Trump, mixed with amazement at how often Trump has violated various norms as president.
In an excerpt, Pratt cited a conversation Trump had with his wife, Melania, a former Slovenian model. According to the billionaire, the former president asked his wife to pose in a bikini by the pool at the mansion in Mar-a-Lago (Florida, UA) to show other men “what they are missing.”
“I asked Melania to walk around the pool in a bikini so all the other guys could see what they were missing,” Trump said, according to Pratt. The three were having dinner at that time.
In response to the request, the former first lady reacted as follows, according to the billionaire:
“I will when you walk around with me in a bikini.”
According to Mediaite, Trump’s spokesman stated that the information “lacks context and importance.”
Melania has already rated her husband’s sexist rhetoric that resurfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign, which the Republican won, as “unacceptable.”
