  • A new biography reveals the nicknames First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump have for each other.
  • Melania called Ivanka “The Princess,” while Ivanka used to call Melania “The Portrait” because she spoke so rarely.
  • The nicknames shared between President Donald Trump’s wife and daughter were revealed in a new profile on Melania by Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan, called “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.”
  • The book is based on over 100 interviews, but White House spokesman Judd Deere told Business Insider the book’s claims were “totally false.”

Melania Trump has been heard calling Ivanka Trump “The Princess” while Ivanka used to call Melania “The Portrait” because she spoke so rarely, according to a new biography of the first lady.

The snarky nicknames shared between President Donald Trump’s wife and daughter are the latest details to be revealed by a biography on Melania Trump by Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan, called “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.”

The “tension” between Trump’s wife and daughter was reported on in a book preview by The New York Times on Sunday. 

The book also outlined how Ivanka and Melania clashed over an attempt by Ivanka to rename the First Lady’s Office in the White House the “First Family Office,” before Melania had moved in, Business Insider’s Tom Porter previously reported.

“With Melania away, Ivanka used the private theatre, with its plush red seats, and enjoyed other White House perks. Some said she treated the private residence as if it were her own home. Melania did not like it. When she and Barron finally moved in, she put an end to the ‘revolving door’ by enforcing firm boundaries,” Jordan wrote. 

Ivanka and Melania’s relationship has appeared strained at times, increasingly so since Trump became president. 

CNN correspondent Kate Bennett wrote another biography of Melania called “Free, Melania: The Unauthorized Biography, which was published late last year, that said there had been increasing friction between the two, and their relationship was “cordial, not close,” Business Insider previously reported. 

Bennet wrote that Melania wore a jacket on a trip to the Mexican border to meet migrant children in June 2018, with the words: “I really don’t care, do U?” emblazoned on the back as a dig at Ivanka.

She wrote that it was a “facetious jab Ivanka and her near-constant attempts to attach herself for positive administration talking points.”

Other details revealed in Jordan’s new biography include the fact Trump took two hours to find the courage to face Melania after the “Access Hollywood” tape came out, Business Insider’s Mia Jankowicz previously reported. 

The tape showed Trump bragging about how he’d tried to kiss women without asking and saying “grab ’em by the pussy.”

White House spokesman Judd Deere told Business Insider the book’s claims were “totally false.” 

“The media is once again running untrue information from anonymous sources and not once did anyone fact check this with the White House or Ivanka Trump,” he said. 

The book is based on over 100 interviews, though many were off the record. It was released June 16.
