MELBOURNE: Seems Donald Trump’s former wife Ivana is the reason for the delay in his run for President.

In a recent interview, Trump’s first wife revealed that five years before their divorce, someone brought him a letter and said, “You should run for president,” reports

She added that the 69-year-old Presidential front-runner has always been thinking about it, but their scandalous divorce postponed the thought.

There was the divorce, there was the scandal, and American women loved me and hated him,” she says, referencing Trump’s much-publicized infidelity with Marla Maples that led to the power couple’s 1991 split.

Ivana, a self-proclaimed conservative who has mended fences with her former-husband, is along for the ride, acting as Donald’s cheerleader and, at times, advisor.

“We speak before and after the appearances and he asks me what I thought,” says Ivana, who tells him to “be more calm” and adds that she gave him the motto, “You think it, I say it.”
