25 years ago, Ivana Trump’s bitter divorce from The Donald was a tabloid sensation. Now, however, Ivana is happily part of Team Trump once again.
“I suggest a few things,” she said in a recent interview. “We speak before and after the appearances and he asks me what I thought.”
According to Western Journalism, Ivana says she urges Trump to stay calm even though she knows it’s against his nature.
“Donald cannot be calm,” she said. “He’s very outspoken. He just says it as it is.”
“He’s no politician. He’s a businessman,” Ivana added. “He knows how to talk. He can give an hour speech without notes … He’s blunt.”
She went on to say that Trump will surround himself with “fantastic advisers, like Carl Icahn. Really brilliant minds. And he’d make a decision! Obama cannot make a decision if his life depends on it. It’s ridiculous.”
Ivana also said that Trump has been considering a presidential run for decades.
“Probably five years before our divorce, Reagan or somebody brought him a letter and said, ‘You should run for president,’” she said. “So he was thinking about it. But then … there was the divorce, there was the scandal, and American women loved me and hated him. So there was no way that he would go into [politics] at that point. But he was always tooling around with the idea.”
She then urged people to accept Trump’s controversial immigration plan.
“I have nothing against Mexicans, but if they (come) here — like this 19-year-old, she’s pregnant, she crossed over a wall that’s this high,” Ivana Trump said in her interview with the New York Post. “She gives the birth in American hospital, which is for free. The child becomes American automatically. She brings the whole family, she doesn’t pay the taxes, she doesn’t have a job, she gets the housing, she gets the food stamps. Who’s paying? You and me.”
“As long as you come here legally and get a proper job … we need immigrants. Who’s going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? Americans don’t like to do that,” Ivana concluded.
