Ivana Trump, First Wife Of Former President, Has Died
NEW YORK (AP) – Ivana Trump, the first wife of Donald Trump, has died in New York City, the former president announced on social media Thursday.
“I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
“She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”
The Trumps were a publicity power couple in New York in the 1980s and 1990s before their equally public, and messy, divorce after Donald Trump met his next wife, Marla Maples.
But in recent years, Ivana Trump had been on good terms with her former husband.
She wrote in a 2017 book that they spoke about once a week.
