On a tour to promote her new book, Raising Trump, about raising Donald Trumpâs three eldest children, Ivana said she still spoke to her ex-husband about once every 14 days on a âdirect number to the White Houseâ.
She told ABC News she was reluctant to call the president too often âbecause Melania is there, and I donât want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like thatâ.
She then added, laughing, âbecause Iâm basically first Trump wife, okay? Iâm first lady, okay?â
That drew a curt response from Melania Trumpâs s pokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, who said Ivanaâs comments had âno substanceâ.
âMrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, DC and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books,â wrote Grisham in a statement to CBS News.
âThere is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex,â Grisham continued. â[T]his is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.â
Ivana Trump was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992 and is the mother of Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric. She writes glowingly about her marriage to the future president in the new book.
In the book, she suggests Ivanka could run for president one day and says she and Donald have a warm relationship despite the âinsaneâ circumstances of their notorious divorce.
But during the 2016 election, it was reported that Ivana on ce signed a sworn deposition alleging Donald had raped her. She sought to clarify that the accusation, which Donald has consistently denied, was not intended in a âliteral or criminal senseâ. Donald Trumpâs lawyer amplified the issue, however, by suggesting to a reporter there was no such thing as marital rape.
