DONALD Trump’s ex-wife Ivana shocked viewers when she launched into a bitter tirade against immigrants on Loose Women.
The 71-year-old Czech-American, who was married to the US President for 15 years, said: « They steal and they rape the women. »
In what some branded a « car crash interview » the former model clashed with The Sun’s Jane Moore, who was on today’s panel.
Ivana paid tribute to her ex Donald, with whom she shares three children, saying they had the same views.
She insisted: « He is pro everything I believe in. He is Republican and so am I. He’s achieved so much, especially with immigration.
« I am immigrant, but they have to come to the country legally, they have to get a job, they have to pay taxes like the rest of Americans…
« And they don’t get a job and they steal and they rape the women. That’s not our idea. »
Jane, 58, told Ivana: « What you’ve just said about migrants a lot of people would find quite offensive.
« You’re a migrant yourself – are you not shutting the door behind you? Do you not understand some people just want a better life? How you describe them is quite inhumane. »
« They have to go and apply for the visa properly then they come to America. They can come and cross the border properly. »
One viewer fumed: « Why give Ivana Trump this air time! Her views are disgusting! At least stand up to her or question her judgements! »
Another applauded Jane for doing that, saying: « Well done Jane Moore for standing up to that ridiculous and offensive Trump woman. What hideous views Ivana has. »
A third tweeted: « respect to Jane for not being afraid to tell her how disgusting her opinion is. »
Others called her « gross and vile » saying the Loose Women panel looked « utterly horrified » during the interview.
Another said: « Omg this is terrible. Ivana saying immigrants rape women, steal and don’t get jobs or pay taxes. And she’s annoyed they don’t dress like Americans! I’m disgusted! »
The millionaire also insisted that her daughter Ivanka, 38, was on a fast-track to the White House predicting that she will be the « first woman President ».
The interview concluded in bizarre fashion, with Ivana saying she would « get even » and wagging her finger at Ruth Langsford after being asked to do the interview at 4am New York time.
