“I have the direct number to White House, but I don’t really want to call him there because Melania is there, and I don’t really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife, OK? I’m first lady, OK?” Ivana Trump told ABC News.
Melania Trump responded through a spokesperson to CNN later in the day.
“There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise,” the statement read in part.
“Washington is tough. It’s a tough town,” Ivana Trump said.
She also added that Mr. Trump offered her the ambassador to the Czech Republic position, but she said she didn’t want to “lose her freedom.”
