According to a report by Inquisitr on Saturday, November 11, 2023, an audio tape leaked last month has exposed former President Donald Trump’s disrespectful behavior towards his wife, Melania Trump
The tape reveals that Trump once urged Melania to parade around Mar-a-Lago in a bikini to show his friends “what they were missing.”
The audio tape was obtained by ‘60 Minutes Australia’ in a joint investigation with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.
The recordings were made by Australian businessman Anthony Pratt, who was a donor to Trump and a high-spending member of Trump’s Palm Beach country club in Florida.
As reported by The Independent, Pratt can be heard on the tapes discussing his time spent in Trump’s administration
The tapes were recorded during Trump’s presidency without Pratt’s knowledge. In the recordings, Pratt recounts how Trump, at the age of 77, asked Melania, then 53, to walk around the pool in her bikini “so all the other guys could get a look at what they were missing.”
This revelation provides a disturbing insight into Trump’s attitude towards women, including his own wife.
It raises serious questions about the respect and dignity accorded to women in Trump’s circle.
The incident also emphasizes the objectification of women, reducing them to mere objects of desire and jealousy.
Melania, however, responded to her husband’s inappropriate request with a fitting retort.
According to the recordings, she told Trump, “I’ll do that when you walk around with me in your bikini.”
This response highlights Melania’s refusal to be objectified and her demand for equal treatment.
The leaked recording has sparked widespread outrage and condemnation. Critics argue that it reflects a broader culture of misogyny and disrespect towards women within Trump’s administration.
It also raises concerns about the treatment of women in high-profile political circles, where power dynamics can often lead to inappropriate behavior.
The incident at Mar-a-Lago is not an isolated one. It is part of a pattern of behavior that has been repeatedly criticized during Trump’s presidency.
From his derogatory comments about women to allegations of sexual misconduct, Trump’s attitude towards women has been a subject of controversy.
The leaked recording of Donald Trump urging Melania to dress inappropriately at Mar-a-Lago is a reminder of the pervasive culture of disrespect towards women in political circles. It emphasizes the need for a fundamental shift in attitudes and behaviors towards women, not just in politics, but in all spheres of life.
As the fallout from the leaked tape continues, it remains to be seen what impact this revelation will have on Trump’s reputation and future political ambitions.
