Daily Mail UK: First Lady Melania FIRES first adviser she hired in the White House and longtime friend following revelations her event-planning firm received $26 million to help plan President Trump's $100 million inauguration


First Lady Melania Trump has fired her adviser and longtime friend whose firm received $26million in payments to help plan President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff's contract was terminated last week, according to The New York Times

Wolkoff had been working contractually as an unpaid senior adviser to the office of the first lady.
