7 Things You Need To Know About Trump's Marriages

7 Things You Need To Know About Trump's Marriages

2. Trump has been accused of treating Ivana like dirt. Ivana once alleged that the following incident happened in 1989 after Trump was enraged over a plastic surgeon Ivana had recommended to him:

What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants.

“Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified… It is a violent assault,” Hurt writes. “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’”

Following the incident, Ivana ran upstairs, hid behind a locked door, and remained there “crying for the rest of night.” When she returned to the master bedroom in the morning, he was there.

“As she looks in horror at the ripped-out hair scattered all over the bed, he glares at her and asks with menacing casualness: ‘Does it hurt?’” Hurt writes.

Ivana later said she didn't "want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense."

Trump also allegedly humiliated Ivana privately and, at times, even publicly. He constantly tore her down with comments like: "That dress is terrible" and "Who would touch those plastic breasts?" When Trump announced that he had hired Ivana as the manager of the Plaza Hotel, he declared: "My wife, Ivana, is a brilliant manager. I will pay her one dollar a year and all the dresses she can buy!" The comment drove Ivana to tears.

Many of Ivana's friends were bewildered as to why Ivana stayed with Trump, but Ivana kept blaming herself. Observers felt that Ivana had developed "Stockholm syndrome" with Trump, as she herself was starting to resemble Trump's personality–a lust for power, media savviness, and an attraction to the decadent lifestyle that comes with being treated as New York royalty.


Evil is what Trump is.
