45th President Donald Trump announced his much-anticipated Arizona rally on Saturday will be postponed following the death of his first wife Ivana Trump on Thursday.
The president took to Truth Social on Friday, writing, “Out of love and respect for Ivana, our big Arizona Rally will be postponed until next Friday.”
Ivana Trump, President Donald Trump’s ex-wife with whom he shares three children, including Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump, passed away at 73 on Thursday, as previously reported.
Authorities reportedly responded to a call for a person going into cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon, according to ABC News. Officials later revealed she died of natural causes.
Trump shared the news with his supporters on Truth Social, writing, “I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City.”
“She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life,” he continued. “Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”
