THE bizarre moment Melania Trump “pulled a face” after coming face-to-face with Ivanka during the Republican National Convention was caught on camera.
In the footage from Thursday night, Melania is seen smiling at her stepdaughter before her face immediately drops.
Ivanka took to the RNC stage to introduce her father, just like she did at the 2016 convention.
Speculation has built over the relationship between Melania and Ivanka following the announcement that FLOTUS aide Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is releasing a book that claims she has recordings of the first lady slamming her.
According to the new bombshell book, Melania fumed that Ivanka tries to steal the spotlight and behaves like she’s on The Apprentice.
A source connected to the book told DailyMail.com about the issues Melania has with her eldest stepdaughter.
The insider said: “Melania complained that Ivanka was always competing with her for his attention, as if she knew better and was more capable of being the First Lady.
“Melania spoke out against Ivanka’s incessant need to involve herself in just about everything in the White House, even if it didn’t concern her.
“She would always find some way to meddle, some way to make her point be heard.”
The source added: “Melania said Ivanka has not shown her the respect a First Lady deserves and is constantly trying to steal the spotlight by overstepping her boundaries and behaving like her father’s most trusted confidant a la The Apprentice.
“Behind Ivanka’s back, Melania would often grumble to her inner circle that there’s only one First Lady and that her husband was the person elected, not his entire family, referring to his kids.”
The highly-anticipated Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady will be released on September 1.
