President Trump’s tweets are the source of many late night TV monologues.
But it seems Donald Trump’s Twitter obsession is thanks to his first wife, Ivana Trump.
In an upcoming interview on CBS’s Sunday Morning, the 68-year-old tells journalist Jim Axelrod she gave him the idea of getting his message out using social media during the election.
“I said, ‘I think you should tweet. It’s a new way, a new technology.
“‘And if you want to get your words across rightly, without telling the New York Times, which is going to twist every single word of yours, this is how you get your message out’.”
When asked what she makes of the US President’s constant tweets and rants, which has drawn plenty of criticism from across the globe, Ivana says her ex-husband is on the money

“Well, it’s a tweeting president. This is his new way, how to put the message across. And he’s right,” she told Axelrod.
On Thursday however, it came to light that the President may not, in fact, be the one posting his own tweets.
The theory ironically puts out on Twitter by political journalist Joe Perticone, shows Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino Jr posting a duplicate tweet, complete with the ‘FAKE NEWS’ hashtag.
Scavino, who has previously insisted the President tweets for himself, has since deleted the double up from his account, leaving just the version on Trump’s account.
“I was just offered to be the American ambassador to the Czech Republic,” she said.
“Donald told me. He said, ‘Ivana if you want it, I give it to you. But I like my freedom.
“I like to do what I want to do, go wherever I want to go with whomever I want to go. And I can afford my lifestyle.”
Ivana reveals she turned down the role because she doesn’t want to say goodbye to spending winters in Miami and summers in St Tropez, or interrupt her jet-setting lifestyle.
