President Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, came to her former husband's defense during an interview on Monday. She said he says "silly" things but he's "definitely not racist," reported CNN

While overseas, UK's Good Morning Britain TV asked Ivana about the president's alleged comments about Haiti and African nations. Ivana Trump said that, according to her knowledge of her former husband, she didn't think the comments were racist.

"Sometimes he says things that are silly," she said.

Ivana comments are similar to the comments that the President's made to reporters at a dinner photo opportunity. While in Florida on Sunday night, he said "I'm not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed."

Ivana Trump also told the British show that she doesn't agree with those who say the POTUS is unstable.

"[I don't think he] is going to do anything irrational." She added, "he's a stable genius, definitely."

She continued, "He's very stable, very focused, very organized," in response to a question about Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury."

Ivana Trump, who has three children with the President—Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric—also said his use of Twitter was "actually not bad" as the media "change everything you say."

"When he tweets it's out of his mouth, and sometimes it might not be clear, but at least it is exactly what he thinks," she said.

She also commented on the way she thinks President Trump governs the United States.

"I think he loves to wheel and deal, he likes to make decisions, he likes to do contracts. He runs the country as a business," she said.
