Melania Trump Drops Adviser Who Got $26 Million Inauguration Contract

First lady Melania Trump has dropped one of her advisers, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, after it was revealed that Wolkoff’s firm received a $26 million contract to help plan President Donald Trump’s inauguration last year. The New York Times reports that the Trumps were not happy when the paper first broke the story about the payment. Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for the first lady, said Melania Trump “had no knowledge of how funds were spent” with regard to the inauguration of her husband.
