There are hardly any days that one can’t find Donald Trump, the former president of the US trending on social media for all the wrong reasons. Soon after he announced the death of his ex-wife, Ivana Trump on Thursday, July 14, the words “Wrong Trump” started trending on Twitter. Ivana Trump who was 73 years old at the time of her death had three children with the former president, named Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump.
The Czech-born businesswoman and ex-model divorced Trump in 1992 after 15 years of marriage. However, even after they separated the duo remained relatively close in the years that followed, with Ivana and her fourth husband Rossano Rubicondi even choosing to hold their 2008 wedding at the Mar-a-Lago resort. Donald Trump described Ivana as “a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life” while announcing her death on his Truth Social platform.
Ivana’s death soon became one of the top trending topics on Twitter alongside “Wrong Trump” and “Donald”. With “Wrong Trump”, certain sections of Twitter users expressed their hatred for Trump.
Sportswriter Jeff Pearlman tweeted “I see ‘Wrong Trump’ trending”. “Not gonna lie—I’d said that to my fam a few minutes earlier. I don’t root for deaths. But exception can be made for an aspiring authoritarian with nary a decent bone in his body (who, for that matter, openly celebrated John McCain’s death)” he added. “BREAKING: Wrong Trump Dies,” tweeted comedy writer Brad Wollack. Another user said: ‘God took the wrong one!’
Author William Shunn tweeted “Well, Death, you turned over the wrong Trump”. Comic book writer Matt Miner tweeted “Once again, the wrong Trump”. “Terrible thing to say. But the wrong Trump died,” tweeted a user.
