Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan has spent the last two plus years tracking Melania's life story: from Slovenia, where her family stood out for their nonconformity, to her days as a fledgling model in Europe staying clear of the industry scene, to a tiny space in Manhattan she shared platonically with a male photographer, to the long dating dance that finally landed her Trump. Jordan documents Melania's key role in Trump's political life before and at the White House and shows why he trusts her instincts above all. The portrait that emerges is one of a woman who is savvy, steely, ambitious, deliberate and who plays the long game. And while it is her husband who became famous for the phrase “the art of the deal,” it is she who has consistently pulled off deals that bring her exactly what she wants. This is the story of the art of her deal.
