Apparently, the Trump family seems to think that we have a monarchy system in America. With the publication of her new book, Trump ex-wife number one discusses the intricacies of her previous marriage, the very publicized break-up, and the potential for her daughter to lead the nation in the future.
Ivana Trump signed a non-disclosure agreement when her divorce from Donald Trump, and she is speaking candidly for the first time since then. From an article on AP News:
‘Ivana Trump, who was married to the real estate magnate from 1977 to 1992, writes in “Raising Trump” that she knew her marriage was over soon after a day in December 1989.
‘“This young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said ‘I’m Marla and I love your husband. Do you?’” writes Ivana Trump. “I said ‘Get lost. I love my husband.’ It was unladylike but I was in shock.”’
The book is set for release next week. AP News obtained an early release copy. Although we may be learning more about Ivana than we ever wanted to know, it will be curious to see how her ex-husband reacts to the open disclosure of previously unknown “family secrets.” Did he get to preview it before publication? If so, you can bet it will be a censored shell of opaque soap-opera-like rich people fighting trash. If it was not pre-screened by Trump and/or his lawyers, it might actually give us some insight into the man who sits at the helm of our nation.
‘In the book, Ivana writes glowingly about her marriage to Trump and her prominent role at the Trump Organization. But then she unburdens herself about the heartache that Trump’s affair with Maples caused her and the couple’s three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric. Donald Jr. didn’t speak to his father for a year after the split.
‘“I can only shake my head at how it insane it was,” Ivana Trump writes. “I couldn’t turn on the television without hearing my name.”’
The AP News interview finishes up with a potentially ominous warning for the future:
‘Her children also contribute passages to the book, and Ivana Trump muses that her former husband may not be the only Trump to call the White House home.
‘“Maybe in fifteen years, she could run for president?” she writes about her daughter, Ivanka, before musing about her own possible title. “First Lady? Holds no appeal for me personally. First Mother? That could work.”’
Even in 15 years, will we be ready for another disaster in the White House? We will just barely be starting the recovery process from the first Trump presidency. No, Ivana, I think Ivanka needs to keeps her business out of politics and just keep making shoes.
