Melania Trump is NOT having it after the President’s ex-wife Ivana called herself the First Lady. In an interview with “Good Morning America,” Ivana Trump claims she has a direct line to the President and often helps her ex-husband with making decisions. The real First Lady’s office calls the claim nothing but an attempt to sell books.

In an interview with “Good Morning America” to promote her new book “Raising Trump,” Ivana Trump said she and the president speak “about once every 14 days.”
“I have the direct number to White House, but I [don’t] really want to call him there because Melania is there,” she said. “I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife.”
She added with a laugh: “I’m first lady, okay?”
But Melania Trump’s office said there “is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex.”
“This is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise,” the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement to Fox News.
“Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, D.C. and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States,” Grisham said, slamming Ivana’s book-promotion. “She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books.”
