Trish Regan: 'Everybody Wants to Paint President Trump as a Racist'


President Donald Trump's ex-wife Ivana Trump said Monday that she remains good friends with the former businessman, denying claims he is at all "racist."

On "Good Morning Britain," host Piers Morgan asked Ivana if she's ever heard him say anything that could "be construed as racist."

"Is he a racist?" Morgan asked.

"I don't think Donald's racist at all. Sometimes he says these things which are silly or [that] he doesn't really mean," she said. "But he's definitely not racist."

When asked why the president would tweet things that are controversial, Ms. Trump, 68, quipped, "who knows."

"He's not going to change. I think the tweeting is not actually a bad idea. The press changes every word you say, and they twist it," Ms. Trump said. "[Tweets] come from his mouth."

Regarding claims the president has been abusive or acted in an untoward manner toward women, Ms. Trump said she was "treated fantastic" when she was married to him from 1977 to 1992.

"I never had a problem. [Donald] was always polite," she said. "During the divorce it was nasty because the lawyers got involved."

Ivana said that following the divorce, she and Donald reconnected and became good friends once again.

She said she still talks to him on occasion, mostly about family and vacations, adding that she is well aware of the dynamic her contact with him could create with the president's current wife, First Lady Melania Trump.

"If it would be me in Melania's place, I would not really like it - the ex-wife calling my husband," she said.

Remarking on a much-criticized tweet in which Donald Trump called himself a "stable genius," Ivana Trump echoed the sentiment.

“I don’t think Donald is going to do anything irrational. He is a stable genius, definitely," she said.
