Ivana Trump's "first lady" comment causes stir with First Lady Melania Trump

Here's a breakdown: To promote her new book, "Raising Trump," about parenting Trump's three eldest children, Ivana Trump gave a Monday interview to "Good Morning America" in which she made some comments sure to privately raise the hackles of the woman now occupying the role of Wife of Donald.

She said: 'First Lady?

The current and only first lady fired back via a sharply-worded statement to CNN from her communications director, Stephanie Grisham.

Instead of recognizing Ivana's exaggeration for what it was-a ideal page from Donald's own playbook, overstatement to make headlines in the interest of self-promotion-and letting this lady cook, Melania took the defensive route, proving that no matter how much she plagiarized Michelle Obama, she fully didn't internalize her most-quoted message.

Since her father took office in January this year, the first daughter has been seen by many as assuming some of the duties traditionally associated with the first lady role, including assuming the role of confidante towards her father. "Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise".

Trump is the mother of Mr. Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka and his two sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. She and Donald divorced in 1992 after his affair with Marla Maples came to light.

Ivana - the mother of The Donald's three oldest children - recounted her nasty divorce in her new memoir, "Raising Trump". "I'm First Lady, OK?"

"Donald got letter from Reagan, President Reagan, and he said, 'You should run for president, '" she said.

"I know that he was not involved at all in any wrongdoing", she said. Asked whether she ever talked to the President about it, she said, "Not really, no".

She writes, "This young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said 'I'm Marla and I love your husband".

"Donald during the divorce was brutal".

But she gave a simple reply: 'I said, I think you should tweet'. "Because I'm basically first Trump wife, okay?"

She declined to talk about the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, saying, "I don't want to go into it". I still feel that way, but given our new reality - having a president in the Oval Office who's reviled by 99.9 percent of the media - I understand why President Trump tweets.
