Ivana Trump and Donald were married from 1977–1992 and she waits until 1993 to make a rape statement and then recants it  "During a deposition given by me in connection with my matrimonial case, I stated that my husband had raped me," Ivana Trump's statement said. "[O]n one occasion during 1989, Mr. Trump and I had marital relations in which he behaved very differently toward me than he had during our marriage. As a woman, I felt violated, as the love and tenderness, which he normally exhibited towards me, was absent. I referred to this as a ‘rape,’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense."
When Hurt's book was published, Trump and his lawyers provided a statement from Ivana that was included on the first page of the biography. Trump and Ivana had reached a $14 million cash divorce settlement two years earlier in 1991. 
Trump Response
Donald Trump's presidential campaign team fired back Monday night after the Daily Beast published an explosive story highlighting decades-old comments Trump's ex-wife made where she used the word "rape" to describe one of their sexual encounters.
When the allegations first surfaced in 1993 Ivana Trump issued a statement clarifying that she didn't mean the term in a "a literal or criminal sense."
A spokesperson for Trump, who is currently a frontrunner in many polls of the Republican primary, provided a statement to Business Insider claiming the incident was "old news and it never happened." They also claimed Trump's ex-wife, Ivana Trump, made up the "rape" allegation as part of an effort to "exploit" him during their early 90's divorce proceedings. 

"This is an event that has been widely reported on in the past, it is old news and it never happened," the Trump spokesperson said. "It is a standard lawyer technique, which was used to exploit more money from Mr. Trump especially since he had an ironclad prenuptial agreement."

A Cheap ‘Rape’ Smear on Trump

So I’ve never been a fan of Trump-as-politician, but what the Daily Beast has done is as distasteful as a protective tariff: Resurrected a two-decade-old claim by Trump’s ex-wife Ivana that he “raped” her in 1989. This claim was made in their divorce and published in a 1993 book.
So what? When a rich man’s wife divorces him, she always accuses him of awful things. It’s a shakedown: “Give me the money I want or I’ll drag your name through the mud and make an ugly spectacle of it.”
Who knows if it’s true? And who cares? Ivana got her money and Trump moved on with his life. It’s over. Ancient history.
This doesn’t mean I’m in favor of Trump’s candidacy, but there was no point in the Daily Beast dragging this old mess out now.
