Marla Maples, ex-wife of President Trump, said she’s willing to help with his campaign in an interview with the Evening Standard.

Maples, who shares daughter Tiffany Trump with Donald Trump, said “I am available if needed and I’m not sitting back anymore.”

“I want to step out more, share more and not be afraid of positive or negative outcomes that come from speaking out,” she told the outlet.

Trump and Maples married in 1993 and divorced in 1999.

Maples even said she’s willing to serve as Trump’s running mate.

The outlet asked her if it’s true that she’s ambitious enough to be vice president.

“Someone would have to ask my ex-husband about that,” she responded.

“I’m open. I’m open to whatever way that I can serve. Right now everyone [in the Trump family] is just seeing how we can help,” she added.

From the Evening Standard:

Recent lawsuits against Trump have not swayed her faith either. Last year, a jury found him liable for sexual abuse of the writer E Jean Carroll and awarded her $5 million following an incident in 1996 — when he was married to Maples. She doesn’t believe the claim. “I do know my daughter’s father well enough to know that he’s never had to push himself on another person. He’s always had women throw themselves on him instead,” she says. “I don’t believe there was a crime done.”

As for the New York jury that found him guilty of 34 charges in a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 election through hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, she can only chuckle. “They love these little sexy stories. We have a country that is failing. Our cities are not protected. How do we make people feel safe again? That’s more important than having these lawsuits that are not affecting any of us today.”

Maples is more than happy to detail her concerns about the US and the world at large. She believes “the media” is hiding rising crime rates in US cities — in New York, specifically, by “gangs that had come up off the southern border” — and declares: “It’s time to wake up to a higher truth, and to not believe everything that is shown to us in the news.” Where does she go for her news? “Oh my god,” she smiles. “Conversations.”

She remains furious about the Biden administration’s handling of the Covid pandemic; the current US president implemented a goal to hit 100 million vaccine shots in his first 100 days. 200 million were administered in 91 days.

“I’m not a fan of forcing people to take an injection. They wouldn’t tell people what was in it. I think that’s horrific,” she says. “A lot of people are sick because of the Covid vaccine. Many people died that didn’t need to die.” She also claims the drugs ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were “things that worked” to treat infection, but “were pulled off the shelves in many states and many countries”. As for her own natural remedy for coronavirus? Delivered in complete seriousness, she offers: “Surround yourself with joyful people. Joy keeps you alive and happy for a long time.”


The pair married in 1993, shortly after the birth of their daughter Tiffany, and divorced in 1999. She said she has forgiven Trump for their past disagreements, citing the fact that marriages are challenging, “especially when you play them out in the media.”

Maples previously revealed she cautioned Trump about launching a bid for the White House while they were married in the 1990s.

“It’s something we thought about doing in the ’90s, but I knew it would be difficult on the kids, it takes a big toll on kids, and Donny, Ivanka and Eric (Trump’s three eldest children with his first wife) were much younger then,” Maples said in a 2018 appearance on NBC.

Today, Trump views some of children and family members as close political confidants. During his administration, Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump worked as an adviser to her father and her husband Jared Kushner served as an assistant and senior adviser to the president. Both took no salary.

This year, Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, was appointed co-chair of the Republican National Committee and his son, Donald Trump Jr., has provided input on who should join him on the Republican ticket this November.
