Trump's ex-wife Ivana says president asks for tweeting advice

When asked about her current situation, the first wife of President Donald Trump, Ivana Trump said, "I have a flawless life".

Trump said the president is still a big part of her life and that they speak 'maybe once a week, ' and that he is 'still asking me for advice'.

"I still have a feeling she looks at this and says, 'Am I really in this position?'" said Myra Gutin, a professor at Rider University who writes about first ladies.

In the book, Ms. Ivana writes glowingly about her marriage to Mr. Trump and her prominent role at the Trump Organization.

"There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise", the first lady's communications director added.

She has given several interviews over the past few days in anticipation of her new memoir Raising Trump, which is slated for release on October 10.

Ivana gave an interview to promote her upcoming book in which she said she doesn't call the direct White House number because she doesn't want to make Melania jealous. The two divorced in 1992 in the aftermath of his tabloid affair with Marla Maples - who later became his second wife and mother of their daughter, Tiffany. Ivana is apparently not on good terms with Maples, whom Trump went on to marry and whom Ivana exclusively refers to as a "showgirl".


"My impulses revealed to me that Donald was keen and amusing - an all-America great person", Ivana Trump composes.

And Ivana Trump is to blame. "It's better her than me".

She then implied that Maples gets the blame for her marriage ending. "And the other one, it's first lady".

One said: "I'm making a public plea to Melania Trump: stop with the sunglasses (and the heels at disaster areas)".

She also said she was offered the post of ambassador to the Czech Republic, her native country, but turned it down because she already has "a flawless life". I like to do what I want to do, go wherever I want to go with whomever I want to go.

But she turned it down because she already has the "perfect life", which includes jaunts to Saint-Tropez, and winters in Miami.
