Melania Trump and her stepdaughter, Ivanka, had a strained relationship with each other. However, sources close to the two say that after the Trump presidency has effectively ended, the two can't stand the sight of each other. 

This was stated by a New Zealand publication, which cited CNN as its source, adding that after Trump's presidency ended, there has been some "finger-pointing" between the two.

A source close to Ivanka Trump told CNN that tensions have risen so much that Melania and Ivanka don't even want to be in the same room now.

Earlier, a book by Melania's former aide, Stephanie Wolkoff had detailed how the former first lady harboured a disliking for Ivanka and distastefully called her "Princess" behind her back.

Wolkoff had claimed that the relationship between the two was both strained and competitive, with the two personalities' aides working overtime to keep them apart.

Is Melania Trump leaving US President Donald Trump?

After Trump's loss in the US election recently, a body language expert and psychologist had suggested that their relationship dynamic has changed as well.

Bruce Durham, a body language expert and psychologist, had suggested that Melania Trump became more assertive after Trump lost the presidency to Joe Biden in the US election 2020 held earlier this month.

Speaking to Mirror.co.uk, Durham had claimed that the relationship dynamic of the former president and the first lady has flipped as the latter has been reportedly eyeing a divorce from her husband on the heels of his defeat.

He had referred to earlier photographs that were taken prior to elections to put forward his point that the US President “is always leading, his hand is always in the 'power' position, and he has sometimes actually moved Melania out of the way to 'set the scene' for him to be centre stage”.
