TRIBUTE: Ivana Trump dies in New York

Published

on

Ivana Trump – the glamorous Czech-American business woman once married to Donald Trump – has died in her New York apartment

Often described as a detail obsessed workaholic, Ivana Trump worked alongside her husband on his early signature projects, and was said to have a direct line to the White House during the Trump Presidency.

She was 73.

She was was one part of the quintessential power couple of the 1980s.

Direct, determined, and never afraid of the limelight, she could even soften the hardest image.

Ivana commanded as much attention as Donald at one point – together they helped define what it meant to be rich in the 1980s.

She worked on signature projects like Trump Tower in Manhattan and the Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City.

She was the vice president for interior design at the Trump Organization, and managed one of his most prized properties, the Plaza Hotel, all while raising their three children.

The couple’s 1990 divorce provided tabloid fodder for weeks. 

The divorce made her something of a heroine for first wives the world over.

And she did everything.

Developing her own business prowess, lines of clothing, jewellery and beauty products.

When Trump became President, many believed she was still the power behind the throne.

The cause of death has now been revealed.

Meta Platforms has announced a better-than-expected sales quarter, as well as a USD$40 billion stock buyback.

The parent of Instagram and Facebook cut its cost outlook for 2023 by $5 billion, and projected first-quarter sales that could beat Wall Street estimates.

Meta stock surged nearly 19% in after-hours trade.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg described the focus on efficiency as part of the natural evolution of the company, calling it a “phase change” for an organisation that once lived by the motto “move fast and break things.”

“We just grew so quickly for like the first 18 years,” Zuckerberg said in a conference call. “It’s very hard to really crank on efficiency while you’re growing that quickly. I just think we’re in a different environment now.”

The cost cuts reflect Meta’s updated plans for lower data centre construction expenses this year.

In November, the company cut more than 11,000 jobs in response, a precursor to the tens of thousands of layoffs in the tech industry that followed.

“Our management theme for 2023 is the ‘Year of Efficiency’ and we are focused on becoming a stronger and more nimble organisation,” Zuckerberg said in a statement.
