‘Just go play golf’: Ivana Trump advises Donald to give up on running in 2020

Published

on

Businesswoman and former model Ivana Trump, perhaps best-known for being Donald Trump’s first wife, says her former husband shouldn’t run for re-election in 2020.

“I’ll tell you something, I don’t think it’s necessary,” she tells The New York Post’s “Page Six.”

 “He has a good life and he has everything. Donald is going to be 74, 73 for the next [election] and maybe he should just go and play golf and enjoy his fortune,” she advised. “I think he probably [misses] a little bit of freedom.”

President Trump on Sunday was at Mar-a-Lago, his 149th day at a Trump property while being president. Over the past week he has golfed – or at least been at his Florida golf course – at least five times.

Ivana Trump, who remains close to her former husband and is the mother of Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump, also suggested that the president might be in over his head.

“I don’t think he probably knew how much is involved of being the president. It’s so [much] information — you have to know the whole world,” she acknowledged.

She had some advice for the Senior Advisor to the President, her daughter, Ivanka: Move back to New York and give up your job in the White House. “Politics is a very dirty business,” she told The Post. “In [fashion], she would be her own boss.”

And the first Mrs. Donald Trump had a few words for Donald Trump Jr.’s soon-to-be ex-wife. The president’s eldest son and Vanessa Trump are divorcing. Rumors are Donald Jr. had an affair.

“I think Vanessa knew it all along and maybe she just couldn’t get over the hurt to forgive him. But I honestly don’t know that many men who can keep their zippers up.”

But she admitted that when she learned Donald Trump cheated on her with Marla Maples, who became his second wife, she was very hurt.

“I divorced Donald immediately [after I discovered the Maples affair] because I told myself, ‘Am I going to live with the person [who] is going to say, ‘I’m going to go and play golf’ [leaving me to] think, ‘Is he really going to go and play golf?’ I cannot do it.”

On the Stormy Daniels scandal, Ivana Trump said, “I feel bad for [Melania] because I know how bad I did feel. It hurts a lot.”

Trump-voting evangelist drops the ‘blasphemy’ hammer on president for deifying himself

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, an evangelical leader who admits he voted for Donald Trump in 2016  is very displeased that the president anointed himself the "chosen one" when speaking with the press on Wednesday.

According to Jay Lowder who heads up the Harvest Ministries in Wichita Falls, Texas, the president stepped over a line with his boast -- calling it "disturbing."

"Since President Trump’s election, many in the evangelical community have lauded him, grateful for his work to protect and propel some of the Christian values we hold so dear," before pointing out that a comparison to Jesus by man who "claims to be a Christian" is nothing less than " shocking, blasphemous and sacrilegious."

An Alabama couple who operated a controversial gay "conversion therapy" camp has been indicted on human trafficking charges in connection with a new religious facility they set up in Texas.

Burnet County officials raided the 10-acre property near Bertram in July 2018, where they removed eight boys between 10 and 17 years old as part of an investigation into possible abuse, neglect, labor violations, fraud, licensing violations and human trafficking.
