The first wife of Donald J. Trump, Ivana Trump, has passed away.
The mother of Donald Junior, Ivanka, and Eric Trump was 73-years-old.
Donald Trump made the announcement on Truth Social:
"I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there were many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. 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!"
Ivana was found suffering cardiac arrest at the bottom of a set of stairs in New York City. Law enforcement is investigating whether she had fallen, but officials do not expect foul play was involved.

Ivana Trump was a class act. RIP and condolences to her three children. She and the president did an amazing job raising their 3 kids. Too many kids in that environment come out a mess. Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric grew into responsible adults any parent could be proud of. https://t.co/qQUKu2tP6V
