While many are busy speculating about what the next four years with Donald Trump as President will look like, Ivana Trump has actually given the world some predictions based on her real-life, first-hand experience of The Donald.

The President-elect's first wife, who is a Czech-American businesswoman, socialite, former fashion model and even appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2010, has given an interview with the New York Post which includes a number of gems about the victorious Republican.

From his living arrangements to his apparent sleeping patterns, Ms Trump has given her perspective on the billionaire property tycoon.

She remarks on his attachment to his private jet

Ms Trump predicts that he is likely to keep his own plane, which has been dubbed the “Trump Force One” by some, rather than adopting the presidential air force. According to a Discovery Channel documentary featuring the plane, Mr Trump's Boeing 757 cost $100 million.

“I think he probably will keep his own plane. He’s very happy in his own plane,” she told the publication. 

She comments on his attachment to Trump Tower

Ms Trump thinks the President-elect will struggle to leave his New York penthouse on the 66th floor of Trump tower. Unsurprisingly, he appears to have grown rather attached to the marble pillars, crystal chandeliers, gigantic painted portraits depicting Greek myths, cherub statues, and indoor fountain. 

She did not think the White House was a patch on Trump Tower. “To be perfectly honest, I think probably the Trump Tower and my townhouse in New York is much better than the White House,” she said while laughing. 

“I don’t think he will ever give up [his apartment at] the Trump Tower. I know it is probably inconvenient for the residents, but he is going to work it out. But he is moving to White House [as his primary residence].”

“Donald is like a good French wine. He doesn’t like to be moved and traveled.”

Obama says Trump’s temperament 'will not serve him well'

She jokes that Melania trump will be doing the packing

Ms Trump said she did not envy Melania Trump because she might have to “start to pack the clothes”.

She claims he only sleeps three hours a night

Like Margaret Thatcher, she claims Mr Trump only sleeps three hours a night and relishes in working from morning until late at night.

A representative for Mr Trump did not immediately respond to request for comment.
