Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana, recently attacked Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, describing the senator from Vermont as a communist.
“Sanders is a communist. I was born in a communist country, so I know when I see them or hear them,” the mother to three of Trump’s grown children told PageSix. “Hillary [Clinton] just lies a lot. Donald is very optimistic, and I think he will be a great president, and not because I’m his ex-wife. He will run this country as a business, and we need someone who will be able to make a decision. If he doesn’t win, he’ll go build another skyscraper. He has nothing to lose.”
Ivana, who was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992, grew up in the Czech Republic in the Eastern Bloc. Sanders describes himself as a democratic socialist.
