Ex-Wife of Donald Trump Says She Supports His 2024 Presidential Bid and Would Be His VP

Donald Trump Daily Report July 11,2024

Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Marla Maples – with whom the former president shares daughter Tiffany Trump and was married from 1993 to 1999 – gave a rare interview in which she said she fully supports Donald Trump.

“I’m ready. I am available if needed and I’m not sitting back anymore,” Maples, who just turned 60, told The Evening Standard in her first interview in eight years. 

“I want to step out more, share more and not be afraid of positive or negative outcomes that come from speaking out,” she added.

Maples was answering a question related to the lawsuit over Trump by Jetty Jean E. Carroll resulting in Trump being found guilty of sexual abuse and defamation when her supportive comments came up.

“I do know my daughter’s father well enough to know that he’s never had to push himself on another person. He’s always had women throw themselves on him instead,” she told the paper. “I don’t believe there was a crime done.”

She continued to downplay the impact of Trump’s conviction in May on charges that he had directed hush payments paid out to Stormy Daniels totaling $130,000 by prosecutors and involved covering up details surrounding an alleged sex encounter before the 2016 election.

“They love these little sexy stories. We have a country that is failing. Our cities are not protected,” she said. “How do we make people feel safe again? That’s more important than having these lawsuits that are not affecting any of us today.”

The Evening Standard quoted sources who said the actress and singer saw herself as Trump’s next vice president, a spot he could announce later this week.

Asked if this was true she laughed and said: “Someone would have to ask my ex-husband about that.”

“I’m open. I’m open to whatever way that I can serve. Right now everyone [in the Trump family] is just seeing how we can help,” she added.

Trump and Maples’ relationship began under controversial circumstances in 1985 when the two met at a charity event when he was still married to his first wife, Ivana Trump.

The couple married in 1993, but were divorced by May of 1997 and Maples was given an estimated $2 million settlement based on the prenuptial contract that she signed when they said their “I dos.”

The two have since been photographed mingling and taking photos together at Tiffany Trump’s 2022 rehearsal dinner.
