IVANA TRUMP passed away at age 73 at her home in Manhattan. A prime example of America’s greatness, she will be remembered as a woman of endurance and class. She loved America and America loved her. She embraced this nation as her own because after, it saved her from the claws of communist Czechoslovakia.
The endless tributes and commemoration for Ivana have flooded Twitter, and rightfully so. A trailblazer, businesswoman, grandmother, and most importantly a mother, Ivana — like many of us at El American and many of you who read us have witnessed the dangerous consequences of Marxist-inspired ideologies — came to America to flourish.
Ivana spoke candidly and fearlessly about her children: Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump, who are unarguably her biggest accomplishments. She raised her kids to be loving Americans, who despite relentless attacks, have remained tactful and with class.
Today, New Yorkers and those who love the Trump family grieve the passing of an amazing woman, whose life story inspires many of us immigrants. A survivor who embodies the American dream. Ivana went from modelling after fleeing communism to helping build one of the biggest business empires in the nation: The Trump Organization.
May she rest in peace.
