Al-Memoir, who is said to be a former colleague of First Lady Melania Trump, has revealed vague details about the White House as her husband seeks re-election.
In Melania and Me, published on Tuesday, Stephanie Winston Volkoff stated that she had seen “cheating” and “cheating” throughout her former friendship.
The White House condemned the book as “a strange twist on the truth.”
The author said Monday that she was working with officials on a financial investigation into Mr Trump’s inauguration.
Ms. Winston Volkoff, a longtime event planner for Vogue magazine, also described the widely reported tensions between Ms Trump and her stepdaughter Ivanka Trump, calling Ms Trump a “princess”.
Ms. Trump, a fan of emojis, was once sent a text message describing her as “snakes” by Ms Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner – both senior White House advisers.
Ms. Winston Volkoff, senior administrator of the Trump inauguration, told ABC News on Monday that she was cooperating with investigators investigating allegations of financial crime associated with the cost of the event.

What else does the book explain?
Ms. Winston Volkoff, a White House aide who said her 15-year friendship with Ms. Trump ended two years ago, was “cheated” by the First Lady for refusing to publicly defend herself and unpaid from allegations of financial abuse while planning the inauguration.
She describes how a person who has become well acquainted with each other for a period of time feels a “stab in the back”.
“I saw Melania transform from a gold plate into 24-carat gold,” Mrs. Winston Volkoff wrote: “Looking at her now, and seeing only the gold shell left, I wonder if she ever has, and I’m the sucker who bought the fake watch on the street corner. “
A spokeswoman for Ms Trump said: “This book is not just about disbelief and insanity.
The author reveals surprising nuggets about the private lives of President Trump, who has now run for president and won the White House. In one episode, Ms. Winston Volkoff describes how the future First Lady reacted in 2016 after hearing the Access Hollywood tape, in which her husband boasted that he could “catch” women because of his fame.
“She’s bright, she’s smiling,” wrote Mrs. Winston Volkoff. “Nothing seems to be happening.”
“She knows who she’s married to … she knows what she’s doing, and so is he,” the author said, adding that she had never voted in a presidential election before 2016.
One of the lines that Mrs. Trump often repeats is that “it’s not my priority to please anyone else,” Mrs. Winston Volkoff later wrote: “She was always a pragmatist, arguing why people should care about what they believed, because she had no control over it.”
The book, dedicated to Mrs. Trump, states that the First Lady refused to go into the White House for five months until the shower and toilet used by Obama were restored, and that Mr. Trump exceeded the color of his choice for wall paint. .
