In an interview with the New York Post, GOP frontrunner’s ex says there’s a need for immigrants
In an interview in Sunday’s New York Post , Ivana Trump endorsed the anti-immigration policies of her ex-husband, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, saying that the first step for America to resume it’s leadership in the world is by adopting his immigration policies.
“And I’m an immigrant,” said Ivana, who was born in the Czech Republic.
“As long as you come here legally and get a proper job … we need immigrants. Who’s going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? Americans don’t like to do that,” she added.
The GOP presidential contender’s first wife insisted she has “nothing against Mexicans.”
“But if they [come] here — like this 19-year-old, she’s pregnant, she crossed over a wall that’s this high. She gives birth in American hospital, which is for free.
The child becomes American automatically,” she said. “She brings the whole family, she doesn’t pay the taxes, she doesn’t have a job, she gets housing, she gets the food stamps. Who’s paying? You and me.”
Trump offered some little-known insights into The Donald’s character, including when he may have first been intrigued by seeking the Whote House. “Probably five years before our divorce,” she told The Post, “Reagan or somebody brought him a letter and said, ‘You should run for president.’ So he was thinking about it.
“But then . . . there was the divorce, there was the scandal, and American women loved me and hated him,” she said, a reference to The Donald’s affair with Marla Maples, a dalliance that led to Ivana Trump divorcing him in 1991. “So there was no way that he would go into [politics] at that point,” she said. “But he was always tooling around with the idea.”
