Ivana Trump throws shade on Don Jr’s wife, defends her son: She’ll have trouble finding a new man…

Donald Trump Jr., whose wife filed for divorce last month, should have no problem scooping up another partner, says his mother, Ivana Trump.

“Donald Jr. is a good-looking guy. He is successful. He is not going to have a problem to find a girl,” Ivana, the first wife of Trump Jr.’s father, President Donald Trump, told Page Six in a recent interview.

“Maybe Vanessa might have a little problem because she has five kids … who is going to date and marry the woman who has five children? Especially since she is young [40] and she might want to have more,” Ivana added.

While she finds the divorce “sad,” especially since it involves Trump Jr. reportedly cheating on Vanessa, she understandably seems to sympathize more-so with her son than his spurned wife.

“It’s a long time ago now, so I think Vanessa knew it all along and maybe she just couldn’t get over the hurt to forgive him. But I honestly don’t know that many men who can keep their zippers up,” she said.

She would know. The president cheated on her during their marriage, though she still finds it perplexing how he ever managed to make room in his tight schedule for adultery.

“Donald was always in the office and coming home, so I had no idea how he had the time to cheat,” she said. “I [found out from Post columnist] Cindy Adams. She saw me at a black-tie dinner and she said, ‘Do you know that Donald has an affair?’ And I just looked at her and turned on my heel. I didn’t speak to her for years.”


When it comes to rumors that the president also cheated on his current wife, Melania, with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006, Ivana understands the first lady’s pain all too well.

“I feel bad for [Melania] because I know how bad I did feel. It hurts a lot,” she said. “I divorced Donald immediately [after I discovered the Marla Maples affair] because I told myself, ‘Am I going to live with the person [who] is going to say, “I’m going to go and play golf” [leaving me to] think, “Is he really going to go and play golf?”‘ I cannot do it.”

“I have pride and I have dignity and stuff like that, but so many women, around the world, they live with the men knowing that they are cheating and stuff like that. Everybody handles their situation their own way,” she added.

She also sympathizes with Melania over the struggles she faces as the first lady.

“Honestly, I prefer that she’s in [the White House rather than me],” Ivana said. “I like to do what I want to do and like to go wherever I want to go with whomever I want to go.”

“It’s a hard adjustment because she cannot go anywhere. She cannot go shopping, she cannot go out to the theater, she cannot go to restaurants because she has Secret Service and 15 cars in front and 15 in back. So she’s sort of a little bit stuck in the White House — and Donald is busy from morning to night and he’s a workaholic — so I’m not sure how much you really can do.”

Ivana even sympathizes with her former husband, whose current life revolves around work 24/7/365 courtesy his job as the president of the United States of America.

“I think he probably [misses] a little bit of freedom, I don’t think he probably knew how much is involved of being the president. It’s so [much] information — you have to know the whole world,” she said.

But it’s what she said regarding his 2020 reelection bid that really came as a shocker: “I’ll tell you something, I don’t think it’s necessary. He has a good life and he has everything. Donald is going to be 74, 73 for the next [election] and maybe he should just go and play golf and enjoy his fortune.”

And miss his chance to “Make America Great Again?” I don’t think so!

She feels similarly about her daughter, Ivanka, whom she wishes would give up politics and leave Washington, D.C.

“I would prefer if she would [move back to] New York. Politics is a very dirty business. In [fashion], she would be her own boss,” she said.

Someone whom she has no sympathy for is Daniels: “She is not playing a fair game,” Ivana said, referencing the porn star’s lawsuit against the president.

Nor does Ivana feel any sympathy for Russian President Vladimir Putin: “Donald’s not going to take his crap, that’s for sure,” she said.


Speaking on her own life, Ivana said she still visits the president’s resort Mar-a-Lago every single week, but only on the weekdays.

“I play tennis and go to the spa and go for dinners with my friends there, but [only] during the week. On the weekends, everybody goes there and everybody wants a photograph with Donald and people go, ‘Ivana! My mother loves you, can I take a picture with you?'”

When not busy living the high life, Ivana of course spends her days as “Ivana-ma” and “Glam-ma,” as her nine grandkids reportedly call her.

“Being grandmother, you have the kids for two hours, three hours or for half a day and then when you have headache, you just ship them back to the mama and she has to change the diaper,” she said.

She’s likewise hopeful that her youngest son, Eric, and his wife, Lara, will give birth to even more grandkids soon.

“I hope so, yes, because he loves kids,” she said. “And Lara, I never thought she would have many children because she’s very slim and she runs in the marathons and things like that. It’s hard for the body. [But] she had the baby and she’s very happy, and I think they will have more.”

More Trumps in the world? YES!
