“Donald is very optimistic, and I think he will be a great president, and not because I’m his ex-wife. He will run this country as a business, and we need someone who will be able to make a decision. If he doesn’t win, he’ll go build another skyscraper. He has nothing to lose.” -she said. Ivana also took on the mantle of an “unofficial advisor” to Donald Trump, and took a major chunk of credit for the former president’s infamous social media presence, that ultimately led to a ban.

When asked about her opinion on how Melania was doing as FLOTUS, Ivana Trump coyly replied saying, “I am not sure. She’s very quiet, and she really doesn’t go to too many places. She goes to stuff when she has to go,” adding that Melania was “quiet.” Ivana was also asked about her relations with the First Lady, to which she replied saying, “No, I speak directly to Mr. President, and I don’t get involved with his ex-wives and his private life.”

This didn’t sit well with the actual First Lady, and responded saying, “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise.”
