'And Tiffany's doing extremely well, ' Trump said of his daughter, who is a student at Georgetown Law School.

The current president and Marla had a very public and scandalous affair while still married to Ivana, so it makes sense she still holds a grudge. 'Don is, uh, he's enjoying politics; actually, it's very good, ' he said. I mean, the children-the children have been very, very good, ' Trump said.
