Melania Trump was not a fan of former president Donald Trump's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the new book The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021, journalists Peter Baker and Susan Glasser claimed that the former First Lady vehemently disagreed with the way her husband was handing the situation.
The tell-all goes on to claim that Melania was "rattled by the coronavirus and convinced that Trump was screwing up."
"You're blowing this. This is serious. It's going to be really bad, and you need to take it more seriously than you're taking it," the former model reportedly told Donald, to which he replied, "You worry too much. Forget it."

Both Donald and Melania caught the virus mere days after the political debate, which left the businessman hospitalized with the virus.
"As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19," Melania wrote on Twitter following she and her partner's diagnosis. "We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together."
