Ivana Trump thinks her ex-husband Donald Trump will be the next U. S. president. Ivana was having dinner with designer Domenico Vacca at Le Bilboquet when she made the statement.
In a separate occasion, Ivana said Donald would make “an incredible president.” This was after she defended her ex-husband against an old report that resurfaced recently. The report which was posted to the The Daily Beast on Monday night, recounts the rape complaint Ivana filed during their divorce.
Ivana, now 66 years old, refuted the old story saying it was “totally without merit.”
“Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of,” Ivana said of Donald as she remembers him as a good father to her children.
She also thinks Donald will make a good president: “I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president.”

The rape claim was included in the book Lost Tycoon, published in 1993. Soon after its publication, Ivana issued a statement saying she used the word to express that she “felt violated” and that she was never raped by her husband.
She felt violated because “the love and tenderness which he normally exhibited towards me was absent.” Ivana said she referred to this treatment as “rape” but added, “…but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.”
