“I Wish My Mother Showed That Much Interest In Me:” Ivanka Trump's Sad And Lonely Childhood Recalled By Her Friend
The daughter of the current US President, Ivanka, has been living her life in the public eye since her birth. She was born to then-businessman Donald Trump and his first wife, model Ivana.
Ivanka grew up in Manhattan and attended the best and most exclusive schools her father’s money could offer.
Now she is a successful woman, the First Daughter, and a key adviser in the White House. But there was a time when she was just a little shy girl who was craving for her parents’ attention.
A lonely child
In a new 2019 book, titled Kushner Inc., author Vicky Ward explores Ivanka Trump’s childhood. Ward claims her father Donald was absent for most of her childhood and her mother Ivana didn’t pay much attention to her either.
According to the book, little Ivanka had a very lonely childhood. The First Daughter’s school friend shared a very sad thing she said when they were teenagers.
When the friend complained about her mother being “overly critical,” Ivanka, reportedly, responded with a pain in her voice:
I wish my mother showed that much interest in me.
