It’s worth noting that as of this moment, we’re unsure whether Ivana Trump died of a heart attack, hurting herself as she fell down, or some other type of injury. 

What Were Ivana Trump’s Politics?

Ivana Trump wasn’t much of a political junkie. In September of 2020, she told the Loose Women TV show, “I really don’t like politics that much. And I would do a great job in the White House, but really, it’s not my inspiration.”

Moreover, after Donald Trump lost the election but refused to accept this reality, she said to People, “I just want this whole thing to be over with, one way or the other.” Ivana Trump then went on to state, “I really don’t care.”

However, she was also on the record expressing that she was a Donald Trump supporter. During the aforementioned Loose Women episode, Ivana Trump said that she was “very very proud” when Donald Trump was inaugurated. She later added, “He’s pro everything I believe in.”
