Fact checked
A Channel 4 Television documentary claims that Donald Trump raped former wife Ivana Trump

An explosive British documentary aired by Channel 4 Television claims that Presidential candidate Donald Trump raped former wife Ivana in 1989. 

The documentary, The Mad World of Donald Trump, reveals the shocking allegations Ivana Trump made during their 1992 divorce. Ivana was slapped with a gagging order just one year later.

Institutomanquehue.org reports:

Allegations of a 1989 rape are revealed by Trump biographer Harry Hurt III on Channel 4 at 9pm. Czech-born Ivana and Trump had wed in 1977.

Hurt said: “One night, he comes in — in a rage — and starts pulling Ivana’s hair. Then according to her sworn deposition testimony ‘he raped me’.

“At this point she is terrified, runs out of the room, runs down the hall to her mother’s room and locks the door behind her. She stays up crying all night.

“The next morning, again according to her testimony, she comes creeping out and sees him and he goes, ‘Did it hurt?'”

Mum-of-three Ivana, 66, clarified the claim in 1993, saying: “I referred to this as a ‘rape’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.”

Republican Trump, 69, previously denied the claims. His lawyer Michael Cohen last year said the billionaire “never raped anybody” and “You cannot rape your spouse”.

The lawyer added: “She felt raped emotionally. She was not referring to it as a criminal matter and not in its literal sense.”
