“Upon arrival, officers observed a 73-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive,” the spokesman said. “EMS responded on the spot and declared the victim dead on the spot. There does not appear to be any crime. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.”

Donald Trump responded to the death of his first wife by calling her a “wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman who led an amazing and inspiring life” in a statement posted on his Truth Social platform.

“Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric,” he added. “She was as proud of them as we were all so proud of her. Rest in peace, Ivana!”

In addition to Ivanka’s tweet, Ivana’s three children responded to their mother’s death in a joint statement issued shortly after the former president announced the news.

“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump,” reads the joint statement Eric Trump posted to Truth Social along with a picture of the Trump family in the 1980s. “Our mother was an incredible woman – a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty and caring mother and friend.”

“Ivana Trump was a survivor,” it continues. “She fled communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about cruelty and toughness, compassion and determination. She will be greatly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren.”
