According to the book, Trump had to go through a painful scalp reduction surgery to get rid of a bald spot. Trump pour his anger over his then wife Ivana as it was the same plastic surgeon that Ivana had been using. Hurt writes, “Your fucking doctor has ruined me!” Trump cried. After that, a ‘violent assault’ took place. Donald seized Ivana’s hand and grabbed her by her hair. He pulled out fistful hair from her scalp in order to make her go through the same pain he felt from his own operation. After that, he ripped her clothes and unzipped his pants.

“Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified… It is a violent assault,” Hurt writes. “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’” Following the incident, Ivana ran upstairs, hid behind a locked door, and remained there “crying for the rest of night.” When she returned to the master bedroom in the morning, he was there. Hurt further writes: “As she looks in horror at the ripped-out hair scattered all over the bed, he glares at her and asks with menacing casualness: ‘Does it hurt?’”
This whole incident moved a lot of people. However, Trump claimed that the accusation is false. He even says that he never underwent any scalp reduction surgery. According to Newsday, Trump said: “It’s obviously false. It’s incorrect and done by a guy without much talent… He is a guy that is an unattractive guy who is a vindictive and jealous person.”

Trump’s attorney Cohen said that no one can rape their own wife. There is a very case law. He further said that Ivana must have felt raped emotionally and she did not mean it in any criminal way.
Later, Ivana accepted it as well. She said: “On 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.”
