The Trump wives, former and current, are having a little war of words of their own. And why shouldn’t they? It is the Trump way, after all.
It started with Ivana, Trump’s first wife, making some comments on Good Morning America about who is the first lady. Check out the video below.

Harmless enough, right? She’s clearly joking and making light of the fact that Trump is on wife number three. Well, Melania felt the need to respond.
A spokesperson for Melania Trump on Monday bashed the president’s first wife Ivana Trump for calling herself the “first lady” in a recent interview with ABC News. Ivana was being interviewed to promote her new memoir, Raising Trump, which will be released on Tuesday. “Mrs. Trump…loves living in Washington DC and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States,” said Stephanie Grisham, a spokesperson for Melania. “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.” During the interview, Ivana took “full credit” for raising the couples’ three children and said she has a “direct number” to the White House. “I [don’t] really want to call him there, because Melania is there,” she said. “And I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that, because I’m basically first Trump wife. OK? I’m first lady.” – The Daily Beast
We’re guessing that the “direct number” Iavana boasted about having will be changed by morning. And if we know anything about the Trumps, this feud is just getting started.
