25 Years Ago, Ronald Reagan Wanted THIS Republican To Run For President! #VoteTrump

In an interview with the New York Post, Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana revealed that iconic president Ronald Reagan once encouraged Mr. Trump to run for the highest office in the land.

 

Ivana said that Reagan wrote a letter to Trump in the 1980s, urging him to run for office, and the real estate mogul has had his eyes on the presidency ever since.

It’s Ivana Trump’s fault that Donald didn’t run for president sooner.

“Probably five years before our divorce, Reagan or somebody brought him a letter and said, ‘You should run for president,’” Donald’s first wife tells The Post at her opulent seven-floor Upper East Side town house, which she purchased for $2.8 million in 1998.

 

“So he was thinking about it. But then . . . there was the divorce, there was the scandal, and American women loved me and hated him,” she says, referencing Donald’s much-publicized infidelity with Marla Maples that led to the power couple’s 1991 split. “So there was no way that he would go into [politics] at that point,” Ivana says. “But he was always tooling around with the idea.”

No tooling now — now, Donald’s the GOP front-runner.

Perhaps that is why Trump paid homage to Reagan using his campaign slogan from the 1980 race:
