Melania Trump would be the only First Lady to pose in the NUDE and talk about her ‘incredible’ sex life

Published

on

If Donald Trump is elected president, his wife, Melania, would be the most beautiful and elegant first lady to inhabit the White House since Jackie Kennedy.

Mrs. Trump, knowledgeable sources tell Daily Mail Online, has all the sophistication, poise and quiet strength to be the next Jackie.

The 45-year-old Eastern European former model studied art and architecture, speaks four languages (English, of course, Slovenian, French and German) has her own, personally designed line of jewelry and watches, and is the devoted mother of nine-year-old Trump scion Barron – Trump’s youngest of five children from three wives.

Melania is  also ‘the rock’ that her real estate mogul husband, now leading in the GOP polls, relies on.

She plans to start campaigning for her husband in August, Trump told Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview.

 ‘She wants to do it. She is a very confident person. She’s got a great style, and she would be an amazing first lady with heart,’ he said.

When the 69-year-old Trump explored a possible presidential run in 1999, Melania was asked what kind of role she would play if he ever became commander-in-chief.

‘I would be very traditional like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy’, she replied.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis authority Pamela Keogh, and first lady expert Carl Sferrazza Anthony – both of whom have written critically acclaimed books about Jackie – recognize many similarities between President John F. Kennedy’s iconic first lady, and the fashionable Mrs. Trump, who might just become the 45th first lady of the land.

‘Like Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania Trump is beautiful, discreet, smart and keeps her own counsel,’ Keogh, author of the books Jackie Style, told Daily Mail Online in an exclusive interview.

‘Melania would be a terrific first lady, and like Jackie she’s got great style, is great looking, and when she walks into a room, everyone pays attention. I don’t think Melania has any personal ambitions, unlike Hillary Clinton.

‘Melania’s much like Jackie, who really wanted to further JFK’s ideals. Melania keeps a pretty low profile, and allows Donald to shine, which is very similar to what Jackie did with Jack.

‘Like Jackie, she’s very well educated,’ continued Keogh. ‘She’s glamorous and she’s an authentic beauty, not a made-up, plastic surgery, fake person. Jackie, too, was an authentic beauty. Because she has great personal style, Melania (who chose a $200,000 gown for her wedding to Trump) would certainly revive interest in the fashion industry, much like Jackie did.’

Someone commenting on a Washington, D.C, discussion board recently observed, ‘I think the glamour and sophistication would surpass the Kennedy White House. I also believe that it would help our relations with Europe…It’s about having a European first lady.’

Carl Anthony, author of an oral history biography of Jackie Kennedy, As We Remember Her, along with two volumes entitled, First Ladies: The Saga of the President’s Wives and Their Power, told Daily Mail Online he’s intrigued by the possibility of a Trump presidency because there would be a number of interesting biographical facts with Melania as first lady.

‘She would be only the second first lady born outside the U.S., the first being Louisa Adams, born in England, and Melania would be the only first lady born and raised in a communist nation. She would also be the first first lady who is the third wife of a president, and the second to have married a divorced man – the first being Nancy Reagan.

‘She would be the third first lady who worked as a professional model. Pat Nixon did so, on and off, in New York and Los Angeles before her marriage, and Betty Ford was contracted as a professional runway and print ad model in New York with the John Powers Agency.’

But Melania is not without a bit of raciness in her past.

Melania would be the only known first lady who once posed nude – for the British edition of GQ, on a bearskin rug on Trump’s private jet before they were married in 2000,

She told Howard Stern that same year, ‘We have incredible sex at least once a day. Sometimes even more.’

Trump bragged about Melania’s hotness in a ‘very small thong.’

The possibility of Melania Trump, who became an American citizen in 2006, becoming the next first lady is generating much media buzz.

Politico recently noted that should she ‘become first lady, expect a White House with more one-percent touches than even Nancy Reagan, the last presidential spouse famous for her lavish tastes.’

CNN, which has been covering the Trump run virtually nonstop, has called her ‘Trump’s secret weapon’.

Melania Trump’s fairy tale life began in Slovenia, then a part of Yugoslavia.

She was born April 26, 1970. Her family – the name was Knauss — was affluent. Her mother, Amalija, reportedly was a fashion designer, her father, Victor was said to have been a successful businessman, managing motorcycle and automobile dealerships. Along with Melania, there was an older sister.

At the age of five, she started modeling. At 18, she signed with her first modeling agency in Milan.

When she was 19, always creative with an interest in art and architecture, she graduated from the Academy of Design and Architecture, in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital.

She then seriously launched her modeling career, working in Paris and Milan, and appeared on the covers of European editions of Vogue — an exotic, dark-haired Slavic beauty who was multilingual

Paolo Zampolli, founder of ID Models Management, invited her to join his agency in the U.S. He told the New York Post in 2005 that she was a ‘homebody’ and not a ‘party girl’ like many young models.

Melania eveloped and marketed a skin-care line, and one of her favorite products was a moisturizer called Caviar Complex C6, with which she said she used to use on baby Barron  after his bath

In 1996, after arriving in New York City, her image appeared on a Camel cigarettes billboard in Times Square. The leggy beauty began posing in the catalogs of such upscale stores as Lord & Taylor and Bergdorf Goodman, and was part of a Concord Watch campaign.

Soon, the biggest names in fashion photography were shooting her, and she was gracing the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, In Style and was in the 2000 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, along with Vanity Fair and Elle, and appearing in TV commercials.

The designer of sexy, expensive women’s shoes, Manolo Blahnik, called her a ‘true beauty,’ declaring, ‘She has IT.’

At a party in 1998, at Manhattan’s trendy Kit Kat Club, 28-year-old Melania, then living in a one-bedroom Manhattan apartment, met 52-year-old Donald Trump, who was said to have been there with another woman.

Melania was no party girl. When she wasn’t modeling she spent her time reading, watching old moves on television and designing clothes.

‘It was fashion week and it was a fashion party and we were both invited and that’s where we met,’ she later said.

At the time, Trump was separated from his second wife, Marla Maples, whom he divorced in 1999. At that party, he asked, but Melania refused to give him her telephone number, later telling a New York Times reporter, ‘I am not a girl who will just give away the number to anybody.’

Instead, he gave her his numbers, and she called the master of the New York universe several days later.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Soon she was sporting a birthday gift from the outspoken, big-spending real estate tycoon: a diamond-and-gold watch from Piaget that cost thousands of dollars.

Because she was gorgeous and decades younger, there was talk that 5′ 10 ½’ Melania — who stands over six-feet plus in her Louboutins — was just another leggy European gold digger out to snag a rich, older American.

But as Joyce Wadler of the New York Times observed in December 1999, Donald Trump ‘got a woman who does not simply stand by her man, but over him.’

Back then he sometimes referred to his trophy girlfriend loudly and proudly in public as ‘my supermodel.’

The Slovenian supermodel appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine in her hand-embroidered frock from Christian Dior, one of the  extravagances in what was the most expensive society wedding of the year. The dress had a 13-foot train and even longer veil. And it was so heavy, Knauss was advised to eat heartily so she had the strength to make it down the aisle.

The dress had a 13-foot train and even longer veil. And it was so heavy, Knauss was advised to eat heartily so she had the strength to make it down the aisle.

The billionaire’s fiscal conservatism, which appeals to his supporters, was amply demonstrated in the time frame leading up to his January 22, 2005 wedding ceremony in Palm Beach, when it was reported that the author of the bestselling ‘The Art of the Deal,’ managed to get a fifty-percent discount on the $1.5 million, fifteen carat diamond ring that he put on Melania’s finger.

When the deal was made public, Trump was quoted as saying, ‘Only a fool would say, “No thank you, I want to pay a million dollars more for a diamond.”‘

Melania, then 34, apparently was not so frugal.

In order to find the most fabulous wedding gown that money could buy, she traveled to Paris with a pair of fashionistas from Vogue, Andre Leon Talley, and Sally Singer.

Melania’s $200,000 bridal gown from the Paris fashion house Christian Dior, designed by John Galliano, had one hundred yards of material, took 550 hours to piece together – and most of those hours involved just doing the embroidery, replete with fifteen hundred crystal rhinestones and pearls. The veil alone was sixteen feet in length, the train thirteen feet long.

It was said to be the most expensive wedding gown ever made at the time. But it was well worth the labor because it gave her top-line publicity.

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of the fashion bible Vogue, put Melania on the cover of the February 2005 issue, draped in the sumptuously fabulous gown. The headline, heralding the 17-page story, read: ‘EXCLUSIVE: DONALD TRUMP’S NEW BRIDE. The Ring, The Dress, The Wedding, The Jet. The Party.’

Vogue concluded that Donald was ‘lucky’ to marry Melania, and noted that the designer Tom Ford had suggested that she do something about his often joked about hair.

Her response: ‘I like him the way he is.’

When Trump considered having his 2005 wedding with Melania actually televised, she put her foot down. The offer to broadcast the affair had come from NBC, home of Trump’s ‘The Apprentice.’

‘There hasn’t been a live wedding since the royal wedding. Three hours in prime time? That’s $25 million in advertising,’ Trump declared at the time.

But he bowed to his lady’s wish to keep the event more private at their very royal Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

The press and the paparazzi were out in force, with helicopters buzzing the celebration and shooting photos of the hundreds of guests and dozens of celebrities, including the woman who could be Trump’s presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. Billy Joel entertained, making up lyrics about Trump to the tune of, ‘The Lady is a Tramp.’

The Trumps live royally, and there are some who suggest the White House residence might not be up to their gold standard. Most new first families arrive in Washington awed by the presidential perks – Air Force One, the military helicopters at their disposal, the limos, the security.

But all of that is old hat to Donald and Melania who have their own jets, choppers, limos and much more.

They divide their time between their Versailles-like Palm Beach hacienda and their 66th floor palace in Manhattan’s Trump Tower where the dining room reportedly has floor-to-ceiling windows with gold panes, candelabra in gold, mirrors etched with gold.

When Melania was 36 in 2006, she gave birth to Barron William Trump, announcing it to the world on her website, and describing him as a ‘beautiful healthy baby boy – 8.5 lbs. and 21 inches long. Donald and I are very happy and excited. We can’t wait to take our little Trump to his new home.’

Togolese cook seeks plea bargain in Credit Switch CEO’s murder…as wife gives own account

Published

30-year-old Togolese cook, Sunday Anani, charged with the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Credit Switch Ltd, Chief Opeyemi Bademosi, yesterday Tuesday May 21st, asked the Lagos state High Court in Igbosere to grant him a plea bargain agreement with the government.

Recall that 67-year-old Bademosi was stabbed to death at his home in Parkview estate, Lagos state in October last year. Anani fled the scene of the incident and was later arrested in his hideout in Ondo state.

At the commencement of proceedings on Tuesday, Anani’s counsel, the Director of the Office of the Public Defender (OPD), Mrs Aderenra Adeyemi, informed the court of his decision to a plea bargain. Adeyemi told Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile that Anani would be opting for a plea bargain deal and that the defence had approached the prosecutor, Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Ms Titilayo Shitta-Bay, to that effect.

Meanwhile the wife of the deceased, Mrs. Ebunoluwa Bademosi, yesterday, gave her own account of what transpired on the sad day her husband was gruesomely murdered. Mrs Bademosi told the gory story of how she returend from work to find her husband in a pool of blood.

“I went through the kitchen door to gain access to the building. The kitchen door was locked. I knocked several times, calling on the defendant (Anani), but he didn’t come to open the door. My husband’s bedroom and the kitchen door was a distance, so I felt he (Anani) must be doing something for him, so I waited by the kitchen door, for a while. While i was waiting, I got a call from my sister, at Ibadan and we spoke for about 5-6 minutes. ’At some point, I brought out my phone from my bag and called my husband, I realised that the phone was being picked but he was not responding. I called him twice and it was the same thing. It was showing minutes counting but nobody was talking.

‘’I went downstairs and decided to pass through the front door, thinking if I got there, there would be somebody at the door. By the time i got to the front door, I realised that the door was left ajar.”

Mrs Bademosi said she immediately suspected something bad had happened.

“I entered the apartment. By the time I got in, I looked up and saw blood flowing out of my husband’s bedroom. I couldn’t enter my husband’s bedroom because the door was only partially open but I could see his body lying on the floor. I wasn’t sure of what could be happening inside the bedroom, so, I ran out of the building and started screaming, calling neighbours to help. A couple of people came. I told them to go up and check that something was happening, that I didn’t know what exactly it was” she said

Mrs. Bademosi told the court that she ran to the gate and asked the security man,

“Where is that guy that oga brought into the house? What is happening? Who is inside the house?”

The guard said the defendant informed him the deceased sent him on an errand.

“People started coming, my next door neighbours and her driver were going upstairs and I followed them but i stood at a distance. They came out and said he was gone (sobbing), my husband was gone, and the defendant was not inside the house, then i passed out. When I woke up, I saw a crowd around me, inside the house, my husband’s corpse was lying down there. They took me downstairs because they didn’t want me to see the corpse. The police later came and took his corpse in an ambulance, he was buried on November 21, 2018? she said

Mrs Bademosi refuted claims that she had a strained relationship with her deceased husband.

“I had a very cordial relationship with my husband. I cooked for my husband”.

The case was adjourned till June 11 for continuation of trial.

Published

on

*Commences emergency clean-up of the Apapa gridlock

*Trucks, tankers to vacate Port Access Roads within 72 hours from this morning

A Presidential directive has been issued for the immediate clearing up of the Apapa gridlock and the restoration of law and order to Apapa and its environs within 2 weeks. The directive mandates the immediate removal of all trucks from the bridges and roads within Apapa and all adjoining streets leading into the Apapa axis.

To facilitate this important assignment, operators of trucks and tankers have also been directed to vacate the Port Access Roads within the next 72 hours.

This directive follows an emergency meeting convened by President Muhammadu Buhari and chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, on the 25th of April, 2019. The meeting proffered lasting solutions to the gridlock around the Lagos Ports, as the traffic congestion has continued to restrict all operations and livelihood in the area.

At the meeting were key heads and representatives of relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government, including the Honourable Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola; Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu; representative of the Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral B.E.E Ibe-Enwo; Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, Dr. Salaam Taiwo Olufemi; and the Executive Director, Marine and Operations, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Dr. Sokonte Davies, among others.

Consequently, a Presidential Taskforce, chaired by Vice President Osinbajo was established to restore law and order to the area within 2 weeks. The Taskforce, which will report directly to the President, has included on its Terms of Reference the development of an efficient and effective management plan for the entire port area traffic, including the cargo, fuel distribution and business district traffic; enforcing the permanent removal of all stationary trucks on the highway, and the development of an effective manual truck call-up system, pending the introduction of the electronic truck call-up system. It also includes the implementation of a workable Empty Container Return and Export Container Truck Handling Policy, amongst others.

Members of the taskforce include Mr. Kayode Opeifa, former Commissioner of Transport in Lagos State, as the Executive Vice Chairman; a representative of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC); the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA); and the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC).

Other members include a special unit of the Nigeria Police Force led by a Commissioner of Police, representatives of the Truck Transport Union, the Lagos State Government through the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), and other relevant MDAs.

The Nigerian Navy and all other military formations have also been mandated to withdraw from traffic management duties in and around the Apapa axis, while military and paramilitary checkpoints in front of the ports and environs are to be dismantled.

In addition, LASTMA has been authorised to move into Apapa as the lead traffic management agency, while the NPA is to commence the immediate use of the Lilypond Terminal and Trailer Park A as a truck transit park. The directive further mandates compliance by all security personnel and MDAs, while heads of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Nigeria Customs Service, Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, and all other security operatives are to ensure their officers’ adherence to the new directives.

FG to ban individual ownership of cooking gas cylinders

Published

on

The federal government says consumers of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) also known as cooking gas won’t be allowed to own cylinders anymore.

Speaking at a stakeholders’ forum on LPG penetration in Abuja on Tuesday, Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum resources, said the government will introduce a policy that would require that the ownership of the cylinders rests strictly with the dealers and distributors.

He said the policy was part of the strategy to deepen LPG penetration and address issues of safety.

Represented by Brenda Ataga, his senior technical assistant, Kachikwu said the government has reached an agreement with two original cylinder manufacturers to deliver 600,000 cylinders to LPG distributors on credit, with a payback period of 18 months.

He said the government will soon commence a clampdown exercise on illegal roadside LPG dealers and advised all skid operators to “immediately convert their outlets to micro distribution centres (MDCs) before the enforcement begins”.

Ataga explained that consumers would only pay for the content of cylinders when the exercise begins.

“The MDCs will essentially create and introduce into the market what we call the cylinder exchange programme, whereby the cylinders are owned by the distributors.

“There is no need for you to decant for anybody that comes in, and that eliminates illegal risks as well.

“You would fill them at the refill plants that would be tied to you and exchange it with your customers because you know your customers already.

“Your customers pay for only the content, while you own the cylinders and control the management of those cylinders.

“It is for us to be able to, at any point in time, discern and discover cylinders that are bad, cylinders that need recertification and cylinders that need to be removed from circulation.

“We put that onus on distributors going forward, to support the safe and standard method of selling LPG.

“I tell you today that Nigeria is the only country in West Africa that does not practice the re-circulation model.

“Everyone has moved away from this because, again, most of the population cannot afford cylinders. So, you have to remove that cost from them.”

In 2015 when he was the group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Kachikwu had said the government had plans to distribute gas cylinders to households at no cost.
