'He sometimes says things that are silly but he's definitely not racist' - President Trump's first wife, Ivana, defends him

US President Donald Trump may occasionally say "silly" things but he's "definitely not racist," his first wife Ivana Trump said this morning.

She was asked on the UK's Good Morning Britain TV show about the President's vulgar remarks about African nations last week and Ivana Trump said she did not believe they showed he was racist "sometimes he says things that are silly," she said.

Ivana Trump's comments re-affirms the President's own remarks to reporters at a dinner photo opportunity in Florida on Sunday night that where he said "I'm not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed."

Ivana Trump told the ITV network's morning show that she didn't think Trump "is going to do anything irrational," adding "he's a stable genius, definitely. He's very stable, very focused, very organized," Ivana Trump said.

When asked about Michael Wolff's controversial book Fire and Fury, which documented a White House in perpetual turmoil, Ivana Trump, who has three children with the President Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric; said his use of Twitter was "actually not bad" as the media "change everything you say. When he tweets it's out of his mouth, and sometimes it might not be clear, but at least it is exactly what he thinks," she said.
