Donald Trump’s ex-wife has spoken out about the President’s loss in the 2020 US election, saying her former husband is “not a good loser” and will “fight and fight and fight” for the outcome he wants.

Ivana Trump, 71, said Joe Biden’s victory over the weekend could push Trump out of politics forever.

“I don’t think he has a choice,” Ivana told People. “He’s going to go down to Palm Beach and play golf and live the normal life, I think. This is the best choice for what he can do.”

But before that happens, Trump must concede defeat.

He gained 214 electoral college votes compared to Biden’s 290, and took to Twitter to spread disputed claims about election fraud and take a jab at the “Lamestream Media”.

“Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be?” Trump tweeted on Monday.

Ivana, a businesswoman and former model, said her ex-husband hates to lose - a statement echoed in Trump’s actions as he fired the Pentagon chief and blocked government officials from cooperating with Biden’s team on Monday.

“He has to go and declare that he lost. But he hates to be a loser, that I’m sure of,” Ivana said. “But if he loses, he loses. He has plenty of money, places to go and live in and enjoy his life.”

The mother of Trump’s three eldest children, Eric, Donald Jr and Ivanka, said she can’t wait for them to return to “normal” lives outside of Washington.

“I think they enjoyed being around Donald and running the election and seeing what will happen, but now it is — thank god — over. I’m not really sure what they are going to be up to.”
