American reporter, columnist, and member of the White House Press Corps and State Department Press Corps. She regularly wrote for McCall's magazine and for The New York Times Syndicate, The Washington Post, as well as numerous other media, especially publications for the Jewish community. Feldman interviewed every U.S. president from Lyndon B. Johnson until George W. Bush; and every U.S. vice president from Hubert Humphrey to Al Gore. She was a contributing editor for World Tribune.com.
Feldman wrote from, and about, the Middle East since she covered the 122 sessions of the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. There, and in Haifa, and in Cyprus, she was an 'extra' in the 1960 film Exodus. Later, she accompanied former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt on her five-day Middle East trip – her last before her death in 1962.
On Mideast issues, Feldman interviewed every Israeli prime minister, including the first, David Ben-Gurion, to Ariel Sharon, with the expectation of Ehud Olmert.
Four months after Anwar Sadat's historical 1977 peace mission to Jerusalem, he and his wife Jehan visited Washington, DC, where both were interviewed by Feldman at Blair House.
Her interview articles on the Middle East were not just friendly to Israeli leaders, but to Arab leaders as well, and she gently argued for open dialogue and an even-handed approach to a just and lasting peace in the region.
Trude Feldman lived in Washington DC up until her death in January 2022 at age 97.
