Ivana Trump Clarifies "First Lady" Comment After Melania Trump Clapback

Ivana Trump Clarifies

President Donald Trump's ex-wife made her comments on The Wendy Williams Show in an interview that aired on Friday, days after ABC aired a Good Morning America interview with her in which she called herself just "First Lady." "She just has to get over it".

"She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books", the rep said in a statement.

The first lady has in recent weeks stepped up her efforts to build a policy platform, hosting children at the White House kitchen garden and attending meetings arranged by the president's opioid commission.

"I tell you, I'm technically 'First Lady Trump, '" Ivana, who is promoting her new book Raising Trump, told Wendy Williams.

She later called Melania Trump a "nice girl." POTUS' third wife Melania Trump responded to the classic First Wives Club shade by calling it "attention-seeking and self-serving noise".

At this juncture, of course, the present Mrs. Trump had the choice either to ignore Ivana's silly and insensitive remarks or, in a slightly more genteel fashion than her husband, respond in kind.

Ivana is promoting he new memoir, "Raising Trump", about growing up in communist Czechoslovakia and raising her three children, Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka with President Trump.

Usually - in America anyway - that doorstep picture features two of the world's most powerful men in the centre, bookended by their First Ladies in handsome dresses. "I sent to Melania the text [saying] the last thing I would want to do is say something bad about you, you know, because you are family and I don't say anything bad or do anything back to the family member", she added, defending her initial comments.

Melania Trump could not be reached for comment Friday.
