Melania Trump's office slams books about her as 'idle gossip'

Former first lady Melania Trump's office put out a statement Friday pushing back on anecdotes found in a number of new books coming out about her husband's final year in office. 

'How can people believe any of the books discussing Mrs. Trump's life,' the tweeted statement read. 'Stories about her are idle gossip, many of which are misleading, and only some the truth.' 

The statement continued by saying that the writers, including reporters from The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, have 'no credibility.' 

Former first lady Melania Trump's office called stories about her 'idle gossip' as one new book says she resisted throwing an election night party at the White House due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

'Books are fiction, and readers should be cautious about what they choose to believe,' it said. 

The Wall Street Journal's Michael Bender wrote in his new book, Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost, in an excerpt first obtained by DailyMail.com, that Melania Trump tried to stop her husband from having an election night fete at the White House amid the coronavirus pandemic.   

Melania Trump told then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows 'no' three times. 

The campaign originally planned to use the Trump International Hotel, just five blocks down the street from the White House, for the big event.

But Washington D.C.'s COVID regulations prevented gatherings of more than 50 people. 

And Mayor Muriel Bowser was still angry about Trump's September Rose Garden event for his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. It became known as a 'superspreader event' after guests were diagnosed with COVID after it.

'We'll be talking to our licensee, which is the hotel,' Bowser warned.

Meadows called Melania to say they needed to hold the event at the White House, which was exempt from DC regulations. If they held it at the hotel, they would face fines or other penalties.  

'I'm not comfortable with it,' she told him.  She told Meadows no. 

He, in turn, called Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law who served as a senior counselor in the White House. Kushner brought it to the president.
