Fear, Bob Woodward’s new book about the Trump presidency, isn’t just dropping bombshells about the White House staff and the machinations happening in the Oval Office. It’s also giving readers a close look at the relationship between President Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump. According to People, Woodward writes that Trump and Melania are indeed in love, but that they’re basically living two separate lives.
“West Wingers and those who traveled regularly with Trump noticed that he and Melania seemed to have some sincere affection for each other despite media speculation,” Woodward writes in Fear. “But she operated independently.”
Woodward adds that it’s not a complete surprise, considering everything that Melania and Trump have been through in the past few years alone.
