Stephanie Grisham, the former White House press secretary and chief of staff to Melania Trump, reserved some of her most scathing assessments in her forthcoming book for the couple known to Washington insiders as "Javanka."

During her tenure at the White House, Grisham, a former top advisor under former President Donald Trump, observed several chiefs of staff, two press secretaries, and a multitude of aides leave the administration.

However, according to Grisham's forthcoming book titled "I'll Take Your Questions Now," the influence of first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner continued to grow throughout Trump's term, in spite of all the changes.

Grisham said that Ivanka Trump came into meetings where her presence was not necessary, including a time when she asked that the then-president speak to the nation from the Oval Office at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

She also said that the the former president told her not to get Kushner's "bad side."
