Ivana Trump, ex-wife of Donald Trump said in an interview that of course, we have to allow immigrants into the United States, after all, we do still need people to “vacuum” and “clean.”
Speaking to the New York Post, Ivana boasted that she is a trusted advisor to her ex-husband. She said that having been born in the communist country of Czechoslovakia, she isn’t much of a fan of politics. But she also said she feels that America has lost its prestige. “We have to get it back,” said Ivana.
How does she suggest we go about doing that? Ivana claims that the only way to “Make America Great Again” is to enact Donald Trump’s abhorrent immigration policy. “And I’m an immigrant,” Ivana said.
I have nothing against Mexicans, but if they [come] here — like this 19-year-old, she’s pregnant, she crossed over a wall that’s this high,” — Ivana said as she lowerd her hand to about 4 inches above the ground. “She gives the birth in American hospital, which is for free. The child becomes American automatically. She brings the whole family, she doesn’t pay the taxes, she doesn’t have a job, she gets the housing, she gets the food stamps. Who’s paying? You and me.
As long as you come here legally and get a proper job . . . we need immigrants. Who’s going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? Americans don’t like to do that.”
Ivana also said that she doesn’t think the bigoted billionaire is a feminist. (Big shocker there, I know.) “He loves women. But not a feminist,” she explained. The New York Post notes that Ivana’s reps called two days after the interview to clarify her statement and insist that yes, he is a feminist. Then they called back to say no, he isn’t. About an hour later, they called back yet again to say whoops, yes he is.
She added that The Donald’s teeny tiny “hands” were never an issue for her and cited his children as proof. “If there was a problem there, Donald would not have five kids,” Ivana said.
