Ivana Trump joked Monday morning that she is the “first lady” because she was Donald Trump’s first wife, and Melania Trump is NOT HAPPY.
Trump told “Good Morning America” that she has a direct phone line to the White House, but avoids calling too often because she doesn’t want to make first lady Melania Trump jealous.
“I have the direct number to White House, but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there,” Trump said. “I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife.”
“I’m first lady, OK?” she said, laughing.
This didn’t go over very well with Trump’s current and third wife, Melania.
According to CNN’s Manu Raju, Melania’s spokeswoman said Ivana is just trying to sell some books. Raju tweeted, “Melania Trump bashes Ivana Trump for saying she’s the “first lady.” Spox tells @KateBennett_DC Ivana’s comments are “noise” to “sell books””
