"On January 6, 2021, I was fulfilling one of my duties as First Lady of the United States of America, and accordingly, I was unaware of what was simultaneously transpiring at the U.S. Capitol Building," Trump said in an interview with Fox News.
She went on to explain that she was not aware of what was going on, and was unwilling to commit to anything without further intelligence.
"Had I been fully informed of all the details, naturally, I would have immediately denounced the violence that occurred at the Capitol Building," she said. "And while Ms. Grisham's behavior is disappointing, it is not surprising or an isolated incident.
"This is not the first time a former staffer has tried to maintain relevancy and profit by using my name to create a false narrative," she added.
Melania Trump expressed disappointment that her former chief of staff and confidante had proven herself to merely be another self-seeking opportunist, saying that she had "always been very supportive of my former Chief of Staff, Stephanie Grisham."
"I stood behind Ms. Grisham after her failed stint as White House Press Secretary and welcomed her back to the East Wing. Ms. Grisham was not in the White House on January 6, and her behavior in her role as Chief of Staff ultimately amounts to dereliction of duty," she said, observing that it was Grisham's duty to provide detailed briefings to the first lady about important national events and issues, something she failed to do that day.
"In fact, Ms. Grisham failed to provide insight and information into the events surrounding January 6 as she had abandoned her post in Washington, D.C.," Melania Trump added. "Shamefully, this behavior has only partially become public knowledge, yet was consistent for Ms. Grisham.
"It is evident that Grisham's recent betrayals are a last-ditch attempt to resuscitate her ruined career and reputation."
