Melania Trump still feels a certain kind of way about Ivana, who recently sat down with GMA for an intimate interview, where she mocked Donald’s wife on numerous occasions.
The jabs Ivana took in the midst of promoting her new book seemed rather subtle and lighthearted, saying that though she has the phone number to the White House, she would never use it because she doesn’t want to cause any sort of jealousy with Melania Trump.
Ivana finishes her sentence by saying that she’s “basically Trump’s first wife,” a comment which quickly began to trend on social media, with people finding the remark rather hilarious to watch on live television.
Melania Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, issued a statement to CNN in response to Ivana’s remarks.
“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. There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.”
Radar Online claims that Ivana is quite upset with Melania’s statement and has reportedly urged her husband to demand a public apology from Melania.
“She was on the phone screaming at Donald and demanding an apology from her,” a source told the celebrity news site, making it known that Ivana is far from impressed by the strong language in Melania’s statement.
It’s a given fact that the two women do not like each other, and what might have triggered such a feisty response from Melania might have been Ivana mentioning that she has a direct phone number to reach Trump at the White House whenever she likes.
And to insinuate that there’s jealousy on Melania’s side is absurd, the First Lady insinuates in an official press release from the White House earlier this week.
