According to a post on Truth Social by the former president, she died at home in New York City. In a statement, the Trumps described her as a "wonderful woman. "
“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,” the statement said.
“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.”
She was born and raised in communist-ruled Czechoslovakia before fleeing the country in the 1970s. In 1977, she married her second husband, Donald Trump, and they have two children.
After 15 years of marriage, the couple divorced with three children. The Czech-born businesswoman and model was vice president of interior design at the Trump Organization.
Her work included Trump Tower, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, and the Grand Hyatt Hotel. She oversaw Trump's Plaza Hotel.
Ivana Trump worked alongside her then-husband to build the Trump organization. She developed her own fashion and beauty brands using her entrepreneurial expertise. She invested in U.S. and European real estate and wrote books.
As the power couple's riches and role in New York's social scene grew, so did their media attention. Donald Trump's affair with Marla Maples, whom he subsequently married, contributed to their difficult divorce.
“She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life,” Donald Trump said in his post. “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!”
