Asked frequently how she raised three successful children with now-President Donald Trump, Trump's first wife said she was the sole "chef" until they were 21 years of age, teaching them to "not to cheat, steal, and lie," before handing them over to their businessman father as a "finished product."

"I told Donald, ‘There can only be one chef in the kitchen,' and it was me," Ivana Trump, President Trump's wife from 1977-'92, told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y.

Ivana's comments come after she was inspired to write a book, "Raising Trump,"  to answer myriad questions of how President Trump's eldest three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, were raised.

Her answer was her way, Ivana told host John Catsimatidis, because their father was busy with business and she was there to instill values in them before handing over "the finished product."

"He did not know how to speak the children's language — he was not able to do it until the kids were in university," Ivana told Catsimatidis of handing her kids' seasoning over to her ex-husband after college.

". . . This is the final product. They had the education. They had the values. They knew the value of the money."

Ivana takes credit for the men and woman they have become outside of business and politics — the latter of which she left to the now-president after they graduated from college.

"I taught them the value of not to cheat, steal, and lie – not to take drugs, alcohol, or smoke, and this is what any parent can do the best in today's society," Ivana said. "If everybody would do that, the world would be a better place."
