In an interview with ABC News on Monday ahead of the release of her new book, “Raising Trump.” , USA President Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, referred to herself as “first lady” , and also boasted that she had direct number to Trump who she calls once every two weeks.
Now, Trump’s current wife, First Lady, Melania Trump, has fired back at Ivana, saying Ivana is just ‘seeking attention”
“I have the direct number to White House but I don’t really want to call him there because Melania is there and I don’t really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife, OK? I’m first lady, OK?” she told ABC.
Melanie Trump responded through her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, to CNN.
“Mrs. 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,” Grisham said, adding, “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.”
Ivana Trump, is the mother of Donald Trump’s three eldest children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric and divorced the U.S president in 1992 following his affair with Marla Maples.
