Ivana Trump is “livid” over Melania Trump’s “forceful” statement to the press in response to playful comments she made, saying she should be considered the “first lady” because she was President Trump’s first wife, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Ivana jokingly said on Good Morning America that she has the White House’s phone number but resists calling The Donald too often because it makes Melania jealous.
“I have the direct number to White House, but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there,” Ivana said during the interview on Monday. “I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife.” Ivana’s comments didn’t sit well with Melania, who released a harsh statement to the press.
“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,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grishamsaid in a statement to CNN. “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.”
