Ivana’s children went on to credit her as a “survivor,” saying that she had “fled from communism and embraced this country.”
Throughout her marriage with Donald, Ivana worked alongside her former husband in the Trump Organization and oversaw multiple projects, including the construction of Trump Tower in New York City.
“She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination,” it continued. “She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren.”
A New York City official told E! News that Ivana was found dead inside her Manhattan home with no indication of foul play.
The former president, who was married to Ivana from 1977 to 1992, also shared a statement of his own in which he called Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. her “pride and joy.”
