Ivana, who was married to the business mogul from 1977 to 1992, also discussed what she imagines Melania's life at the White House is like.
Melania is the most popular Trump in the White House, according to a recent CNN survey in which 44% of those polled said they have a favourable opinion of the first lady. "She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books".
The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said Ivana Trump's comments have "no substance".
The statement has since warranted a response from the first lady's office. 'I don't talk about her. She and the president have remained in contact despite their marriage ending 25 years ago. Because, quite simply, I am the first Trump " she said laughing.
Or she could just. ignore it. because Ivana was clearly making a joke? But she said she has a better relationship with Melania, for a good reason.
Of course, the scandal Ivana was referring to was Donald's affair with Marla Maples, who he later married in 1993.
Ivana also took full credit for raising her kids, claiming that Trump was a "good provider" but didn't spend much time actively involved with the children until they were 18. OK, why would I go and say bye-bye to Miami in the winter, bye-bye to Saint-Tropez in the summer and bye-bye to spring and fall in NY?
