According to reports, Ivana Trump is furious over Melania's "forceful" statement in response to a few playful comments she's made about being called the first lady because she was Donald Trump's first wife.
"I have the direct number to White House, but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there", Ivana said during the interview on Monday.

Melania and US President Donald Trump were honouring the 2017 National Hockey League Stanley Cup Champions, The Pittsburgh Penguins, in the East Room of the White House on October 10, when the 47-year-old wore the dress. "She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books", spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement to CNN.
On a visit to discuss an ongoing drug addiction epidemic in West Virginia yesterday, Trump forwent her typical "America first" policy (usually we see her in Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and other big NY names) instead choosing Cameron's vivid green "belted muslin shirt dress" design, with signature Christian Louboutin snakeskin heels. "There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise". By wearing a garment designed by a well-known First Lady (albeit from a different country), Melania is quietly reminding whoever sees that picture of her title.
It was unclear whether the president was aware of the fracas.
