US President Donald Trump’s first wife Ivana Trump last night responded to the reported fallout between herself and Melania.

The former model, who is the mother of three of Trump’s children, told The Ray D’Arcy Show what happened when she declared herself “the first Trump lady”.

“I said I’m first Trump lady. And first lady went bananas over it. I have no idea how it sparkled. I have no idea why, but I am definitely first Trump lady.”

“I was married to Donald. I have three kids with him, and I have no idea why she resents it.”

Then she added: “Who cares.”

Ivana and Donald were married in 1977 and divorced in 1992. Ivana is currently promoting her memoir 'Raising Trump', which details how she brought up her three children - Eric, Donald Jr and Ivanka - with her then-husband.

Asked by Ray D’Arcy if she thinks Melania is doing a good job, she replied: “I think she’s trying her best.”

Describing Trump as a father when their children were young, she said: “He was very caring. He loved the kids. But he would not really be a Dad that would take them for a stroll in Central Park or go to soccer with them… He was always on the telephone making the business.”

“They were playing with their lego on the floor and he was on the telephone making the deals.”
