Eric Trump wrote the following: “Our mother was a remarkable lady – a powerhouse in business, a world-class athlete, a stunning beauty, and compassionate mother and friend.” She accepted this nation after escaping communism. She instilled in her kids the values of compassion, perseverance, and tenacity.

Ivana Trump was discovered by authorities to be unconscious at the scene, and emergency medical personnel declared her dead, according to a statement from the New York Police Department. The city’s medical examiner will establish the cause of death since there were no indications of foul play.

According to a profile on the website of talent agency CMG Worldwide, Ivana Trump grew up in Gottwaldov, Czechoslovakia, which is south of Prague. Before starting a modeling career, she immigrated to Canada in the 1970s and worked as a ski instructor.

She met Donald Trump in 1976 while visiting New York for business. The biography states that the pair was hitched in 1977.

Her first child, Donald Trump Jr., was born in the same year. Her daughter Ivanka and son Eric were born the following year.

Ivana and Donald aggressively worked to create a celebrity atmosphere around their marriage since they were regularly used as tabloid fodder.

Ivana Trump served as the Trump Organization’s vice president of interior design. She worked on the design of Trump Tower and held the position of CEO of a few Trump hotel companies.

The couple’s failing marriage was featured on tabloid front pages, and they eventually got divorced in 1992.

In the 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald Trump, Ivana Trump claimed that her husband had raped her during their marriage and tore out her hair, but she later recanted this claim in a statement made soon before the book’s publication.

“[Mr. Trump] and I had marital intercourse on one occasion during 1989 in which he acted extremely differently toward me than he had throughout our marriage,” she said. “As a woman, I felt violated because he wasn’t showing me the usual amount of love and affection. I called this a “rape,” but I don’t want my words to be taken literally or in a bad way.

The assertion was labeled as “clearly untrue” by Donald Trump.

After the divorce, she continued to be well-known and capitalized on her notoriety by starring in commercials for well-known companies and starting a cosmetics line called Ivana Haute Couture.

After Trump was elected president, she caused controversy by referring to herself as the “first lady” in an interview with ABC News.

I have the White House’s direct number, but I don’t want to contact him there since Melania is there and I don’t want to arouse any jealously because I am essentially the first Trump wife, she added. I’m the first woman.

Donald, Ivanka, and Eric Trump, Ivana Trump’s three adult children, and a number of grandkids, all survive her.
