Donald Trump’s Ex-Wife Defends Him After Rape Allegations: CNN

Ivana Trump says Daily Beast report that she accused GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump of rape in the early 90s is “totally without merit,” CNN reports.

  • “I think he would make an incredible president,” Ivana Trump says; comments were “attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald”
  • Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, said in Daily Beast interview that legally “you cannot rape your spouse”
    • Cohen threatened to sue Daily Beast
    • Cohen comments drew fire from DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who said, “This is a new low. Rape is rape. Full stop”
