Solidcore Gym owner and founder, Anne Mahlum, has admitted her accusation that Ivanka Trump had attended one of her Pilates-style workout classes using an alias was false. Mahlum posted on Thursday on her Facebook account that Trump had attended a workout class in one of her Washington, D.C. gyms, using an alias, but she has since admitted her accusation was false.
The Washington Examiner reported that Mahlum criticized Ivanka’s attending one of her workout classes using an alias, saying in the Facebook post that her father, President Donald Trump, “threatened” many of her other clients and coaches with his stances regarding their rights. Now, Mahlum has admitted she was just trying to reach out to Ivanka Trump and set up private classes with the president’s daughter, according to FOX News Insider.
Mahlum continued by saying the president’s daughter was welcome at Solidcore and she hopes the first daughter will come back. Mahlum mentioned that Solidcore was “founded on inclusivity” and she called it “unfortunate” that her previous Facebook post requesting a meeting with Ivanka Trump fell short of communicating Solidcore’s commitment to openness.
On Friday Mahlum said, referring to her Facebook post from Thursday, that she did not say Ivanka could not attend classes. She stated in the post that Solidcore’s clients “represent a spectrum of different races, religions, sexual orientations, and political beliefs, all of whom are welcome here proudly.” As of Friday afternoon, “Mahlum’s original Facebook post was no longer visible.”
The Inquisitr reported that Mahlum’s original Facebook post on Thursday had gone “viral” because of Mahlum’s accusation that “Ivanka Trump had taken a class in one of her gyms, but used an assumed name while doing so.” Mahlum has bragged in the past that former First Lady Michelle Obama had taken classes at her Solidcore gyms, and she was apparently trying to lure the president’s daughter to become one of her latest big name clients.
Some supporters of President Donald Trump, who were angry by Mahum’s original Facebook post on Thursday, suggested “a boycott of Solidcore.” Social media users commented that if Ivanka Trump had attended a workout class at a Solidcore gym and had used an alias, that would not be so out of the ordinary, as it is not unusual for famous people to use aliases so they can maintain a low profile.
