Donald Trump's ex-wife, Ivana Trump, came to his defense on Tuesday after The Daily Beast resurfaced a decades-old deposition in which she reportedly accused the billionaire real estate mogul of sexually assaulting her.
The Beast dredged up an account of the deposition that was published in the 1993 book "Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump." The Beast brought up the incident after the now-presidential candidate made remarks describing Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and drug runners.
