Melania Trump has made it clear that she and her team are not happy about the rapper, T.I’s recent Dime Trap promotion video.
During the one-minute clip, Donald Trump is seen flying off in a helicopter to handle presidential business. Meanwhile, T.I is sitting in the oval office when a Melania look-alike enters into the room only wearing the infamous “I Really Don’t Care” jacket.
After a while, she takes the jacket off and is completely naked. The look-alike proceeds to seduce the rapper while he remains seated smoking a cigar.

On Friday (October 13), Melania’s rep Stephanie Grisham tweeted, “How is this acceptable?” #disgusting @boycottT.I. @Tip.”

According to ET Canada, Grisham elaborated on her initial tweet in a new statement.
“Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country. It needs to stop.”
Tip was likely triggered after Kanye West’s White House meeting with 45 last Thursday (October 11). That same day, he fired off a lengthy Instagram post, blasting ‘Ye for — what he called — an “embarrassing act of desperation.”
The next day, T.I. posted the controversial clip to his Twitter account.
The caption read, “Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye.”
