As columnist R.

Donald Trump pays his last respects to his ex-wife

Whether Donald Trump, 76, accompanied by wife Melania Trump, 56, would appear was unclear until the ceremony, although the couple is currently in New York. Donald and Ivana were married from 1977 to 1992. “She was a wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman who lived a great and inspiring life,” the ex-president said in an official statement after Ivana’s death. Now it is clear that the 45th President of the USA is also paying his last respects to his ex-wife.

No sign of Melania far and wide. She and Ivana are said to have never gotten along well, in 2017 Ivana even publicly lashed out at her husband’s new wife in a Good Morning America interview. “But I hate to call the White House because Melania is there and I don’t want any jealousy about me. After all, I’m Trump’s first wife, okay? I’m the first lady, okay?” she said. Melania didn’t let that sit down and announced through her office: “There is obviously nothing to this statement by an ex, it is a regrettable case of craving for recognition […].”

According to R. Couri Hay, “people from all over the world” were flown in to say goodbye to Ivana Trump. In lieu of flowers, the family asked for donations to benefit Florida-based animal welfare organization Big Dog Ranch Rescue. The deceased had been involved with the association for years.
