Former First Lady Ivana Trump passed away
Donald Trump announced on Thursday that Ivana Trump, a lifelong businesswoman and his ex-wife, had passed away at home in New York City. She was 73.
Later on Thursday, the New York Police Department declared that there "appears to be no wrongdoing" connected to Ivana Trump's passing. A statement claims that at at 12:40 p.m. ET, officers received a 911 call about a "assisted individual" and discovered a "73-year-old female who was unconscious and unresponsive."
The New York Fire Department said that it reacted to a report of a person having a cardiac attack at the home, and the timing and location of that reaction matched the ones the NYPD linked to Trump. The guy was reportedly already dead when the fire department arrived.
Ivana was the mother of Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump. "I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are 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!" Donald Trump posted.
Eric Trump wrote in part on Instagram that his mother was "a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend."
Ivanka Trump tweeted that she was "heartbroken by the passing of (her) mother," adding: "Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate and wickedly funny. She lived life to the fullest -- never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance. I will miss her forever and will keep her memory alive in our hearts always."
