In a new book, Ivana Trump, the US president’s first wife, has some words of praise for her former husband. But she reserves much of the back-patting for herself.
Ivana Trump was married to Donald Trump for 15 years, and she’s the mother of three of his five children, Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. In an excerpt from her new book about motherhood, Raising Trump, out tomorrow (Oct. 10) from Gallery Books, she has some congratulations to hand out to all the OG Trumps.
In particular, Trump gives her daughter a considerable, if not surprising, amount of credit for her former husband’s election in November.
I think Ivanka played a big part in Donald’s victory. Voters looked at her and thought, I like her. I trust her. She loves her father, so he can’t be that bad. Who knows? One day, she might be the first female—and Jewish—POTUS.
And who should get the credit for turning out such a beloved election-nabber? Naturally, the author.
