Ivana Trump has been very supportive of her ex-husband’s presidential aspirations, but she isn’t endorsing The Donald’s wife as First Lady.

At a recent event in town, one partygoer told Ivana that she would’ve been a lovely First Lady. We’re told that 66-year-old Ivana, who was married to the bombastic businessman from 1977 to 1992, laughed and said, “Yes, but the problem is, what is he going to do with his third wife?” She was referring to Melania Trump, 45, who married the Donald in 2005. “She can’t talk, she can’t give a speech, she doesn’t go to events, she doesn’t (seem to) want to be involved,” Ivana told our insider.

Despite her modeling roots, Melania has been noticeably camera shy during her husband’s headline making campaign. In a very rare interview following last week’s GOP debate, she told Extra TV that Donald should “Just keep tough, and smart, and keep going.”

But even if The Donald’s First Lady is a silent partner, Ivana thinks candidate Trump will be as good a President as he keeps telling us he’ll be.

“He’ll be a great President,” she said. “He’ll surround himself with the right people. He was always meant to be a politician.”

Our insider said that Ivana wouldn’t get involved when the conversation turned to a nude photo shoot Melania participated in on an ex-boyfriend’s private plane for an GQ magazine in 2000.

“Everyone is leery of that,” said our party source. “Let’s remember that Carla Bruni modeled too and she became first lady to Nicolas Sarkozy. There is some precedent, but that’s France.”

According to Ivana, The Donald’s second wife, Marla Maples, might be to blame for the fact that we haven’t already had a Donald Trump presidency, says our insider.

“I suggested to Donald that he should run for President in the ’80s,” Trump told our partygoer.

Ivana and Donald were married through a Golden Era of conservative politics that included two Reagan administrations and a four-year term for George H.W. Bush. That all ended in the early ’90s when Bill Clinton began his successful campaign to push the GOP out of the White House and The Donald’s affair with his second wife-to-be broke up Ivana’s home in 1991. According to Ivana, Donald’s dalliance may have derailed his political ambitions for a couple of decades.

“Then he got involved with Marla Maples and America hated him,” she said.

At least now, America is amused by him.
