First Mother? Ivana Trump raises the possibility of her daughter Ivanka's presidency

"I'm basically first Trump wife", Ivana said. "OK? I'm [the] first lady". "I'm first lady, OK?" she told ABC, laughing. Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, dispatched a crisp response dismissing Ivana's remarks as "attention seeking" from someone who just wants to sell books and making clear that Melania Trump does not, in fact, hate her Washington life.

Ivana said she has no interest in being first lady of the United States, but would love to be "First Mother".

Over the weekend, in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning promoting her new book Raising Trump, she called Trump's second wife, Marla Maples, a "showgirl" and a "nobody". "There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex". "T$3 his is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise".

What's even more wonderful is the fact that this is the first public drama between the first and third Mrs. Trumps (the second Mrs. Trump was Marla Maples, who had an affair with Mr. Trump while he was still married to Ivana). "And the other one, it's first lady".

Ivana was married to The Donald from 1977 to 1992 and had three children with him: Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka, whom she'd love to see be president one day (more on that later). The two separated in the 1990's.

"I'm a big believer in healthy eating because it reflects on your mind and your body", she said before telling the group to "come with me and have some fun". "I have a flawless life", Trump said in an interview on CBS' Sunday Morning. Ivanka is also a senior White House adviser. "I'm First Lady, OK?"

Though the first lady has previously said she has a "thick skin" and isn't bothered by criticism, it is clear that Ivana Trump's comments struck a nerve. "It's better her than me".

Ivana Trump also said she still talks to her ex-husband weekly and has encouraged him in his Twitter habits.

"The more comfortable she becomes in the position, the more great work she's going to be able to do", said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide.

She declined to talk about the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, saying, "I don't want to go into it".
