First lady Melania Trump makes a statement on Ivana Trump’s comments

The US first lady was responding to Ivana Trump’s interview on Good Morning America in which she jokingly referred to herself as first lady while promoting her book “Raising Trump”.

“I have the direct number to White House but I don’t really want to call him there because Melania is there” Ivana Trump, who was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992, said. “I don’t really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife, okay? I’m first lady, okay?”

The president’s first wife stirred up controversy this morning, when she spoke about her close relationship with her ex husband, the current U.S President Donald Trump. This comment triggered U.S First Lady Melania Trump to make a statement regarding the controversy, saying:

“Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and The President. She loves living in Washington, DC and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books. There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise” the statement from spokesman Stephanie Grisham reads.

The statement is a stunning departure for Melania Trump, who, until Monday, had largely stayed above the fray, isolating herself from negativity and critics.
She has refrained from wading into news-of-day debates and controversy, focusing on son Barron, 11, and working to develop her platform as first lady. When her husband’s ex-wife’s book comes out on Tuesday, the First Lady will be travelling to West Virginia, where she will visit with infants affected by opioid addiction.
Ivana, a Czech-American businesswoman and former model, was married to the president from 1977 until the early 1990s, when the two split after the real-estate mogul’s affair with Marla Maples became public. Ivana is apparently not on good terms with Maples, whom Trump went on to marry and whom Ivana exclusively refers to as a “showgirl.”
