Ivana Trump suggests she would be a good choice for US ambassador to the Czech Republic

US President-elect Donald J. Trump's ex-wife Ivana Trump has told the New York Post she will talk to her ex-husband about the possibility of serving as the next US ambassador to Prague. In the interview published on Friday, the 67-year-old businesswoman suggested that her fluency in Czech as well as name recognition in the country of her birth, could be strong assets. Ivana Trump was born in the former Czechoslovakia in 1949. The possibility of her serving as ambassador was greeted positively in a tweet by Jiří Ovčáček, the spokesman for Czech President Miloš Zeman. The Czech president had backed Mr Trump ahead of his surprise win last Tuesday, when most polls in the US had suggested the presidency would be won by Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton. Clinton won the popular vote but lost in the electoral college.
