Former President Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana Trump, died at 73, according to the family.
Trump posted a statement on Truth Social that he is “very saddened” by the news that the mother of Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump passed away.
I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!
Trump married Ivana in 1977 and the couple divorced in 1992.
Eric Trump also posted a tribute with a family photo on Truth Social:
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump. Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend. Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination. She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren.
The phrase “wrong Trump” was trending on Twitter Thursday following the tragic news.
