Although the couple was very public about their divorce, they were on good terms in recent years.

Her role in 1996’s hit film The First Wives Club featured her famous line: “Ladies, be strong and independent. And don’t get mad. Get everything.”

Trump posted the death of his ex-wife on Truth Social, his social media platform that he created after Twitter was banned indefinitely.

He said, “She was an amazing, beautiful, and inspiring woman who lived a great, inspirational life.”

Her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, were her pride and joy. They were her pride and joy, just as she was proud of us all. Rest in Peace, Ivana!

Trump’s family stated that “Ivana Trump was a survivor.” She fled communism and adopted this country. She instilled in her children grit, toughness, compassion, and determination.

“She will be missed dearly by her mother, her 3 children, and her 10 grandchildren.”

She was four times married, the most recent to Rossano Rubicondi, an Italian actor.
