Ivana Trump - first wife of Donald Trump, and mother to Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump - said her daugter "likes" the president's third and current wife, Melania Trump, just "fine" because the first lady was not the woman who caused Ivana and Donald Trump to divorce.

During an interview with The Atlantic for a new in-depth piece on Ivanka Trump's transition from NY high society to "playing government" in the White House - as former Chief of Staff John Kelly referred to her role in the administration - Trump praised Ivanka Trump as his "heir apparent", in The Atlantic's words. "Ivanka decided that she was only going to see her father as good and do whatever it took to earn his affection".

"She's a natural diplomat", Trump said.

It is a pretty clear thing: Ivanka is Donald trump's favorite child.

She was previously a businesswoman and NY socialite.

In 2018, Ivanka partnered with the World Bank to create the Women Entrepreneur's Finance Initiative, a program quickly nicknamed the "Ivanka Fund" which seeks to enable women in developing countries to more readily access loans and grants to fund their own small businesses and other development projects.


The White House previously said Ivanka Trump was involved in the selection process for the post, but wasn't a contender for the job.

The U.S. and China have imposed tariffs on $350 billion worth of each other's goods.

The piece portrays Ivanka as Trump's heir apparent, and it opens up with this anecdote about how Trump suddenly "lit up" when his daughter suddenly walked on an interview her father was giving for Plott's article.


Ivanka Trump lifted her hands, astonished.

I asked why he didn't nominate her.

In the Atlantic interview, the president also praised Ivanka Trump for possessing "a great calmness". Donald Trump also flew Maples to the mountain resort town, where she stayed in a penthouse.
