Ivana Trump believes her daughter has gained invaluable experience working alongside her father Donald Trump at the White House. Ivanka Trump could be the first woman American President, believes her mother Ivana Trump. The former wife of Donald Trump spoke in length about the President, their daughter Ivanka among other things during an appearance on British daytime panel show Loose Women. Ivana Trump, 71, said she had everything needed to be the first US woman President. "I think she's in the White House every day, she's next to her father every day, she knows all that is going around... I think she could be one day the first woman president, definitely. She's smart as hell, she's beautiful," said Ivana, reported The Newsweek. Donald Trump has also insisted that he sees his elder daughter as a future presidential pick. During a campaign rally last month, Trump told his crowd of supporters in New Hampshire, "They're all saying 'we want Ivanka. I don't blame them." A book titled Kushner Inc. claimed that Ivanka Trump does harbor ambitions of becoming President and the book's author Vicky Ward stated that Ivanka believes "her father’s reign in Washington, D.C., is, she believes, the beginning of a great American dynasty," reported The New York Times. Ivanka Trump has also faced a lot of opposition after she was named White House adviser with many questioning her qualifications for the job. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez questioned her after a video showed her trying to force herself into a conversation among world leaders. "It may be shocking to some, but being someone's daughter actually isn't a career qualification. It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn't hurt either," said Ocasio-Cortez. Singer Cher once slammed Trump's children and said, "not one of them is worth a damn."
Ivana Trump also courted controversy after she lashed out at immigrants and echoed racist stereotypes pushed by her former husband Donald Trump. She said immigrants "steal and rape" women during the show. Ivana said she supported her former husband's tough stance on immigrants. "He is pro everything I believe in. He is Republican and so am I. He's achieved so much, especially with immigration," said Ivana. "I am immigrant, but they have to come to the country legally, they have to get a job, they have to pay taxes like the rest of Americans... A lot of people don't dress even American, they dress whatever they dress in. And they don't get a job and they steal and they rape the women. That's not our idea." Host Jane Moore told Ivana Trump that she was being hypocritical. "What you've just said about migrants a lot of people would find quite offensive. You're a migrant yourself — are you not shutting the door behind you? Do you not understand some people just want a better life? How you describe them is quite inhumane." Ivana replied, "It is inhumane but everybody has to pick themselves up. They have to go and apply for the visa properly then they come to America. They can come and cross the border properly." The former model hails from Czechoslovakia (now Czechia) before moving to Canada in September 1973. She met Donald in 1976 at a modeling event in New York City. The pair married in 1977 before divorcing in 1992. The couple has three children —Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. Donald Trump himself has been guilty of pushing such racist stereotypes. His Presidential campaign in 2016 was filled with racist stereotypical assessments of Mexicans, "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." He constantly painted Mexicans as thugs and promised to be the "savior" by building a wall to keep them out.
