Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana would be the best choice for a U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic, the central European country’s president said, after speaking to her by phone on Wednesday.

The fact that Ivana Trump, the U.S. president-elect’s first of three wives, expressed interest in representing the U.S. in her native country, “made me very happy,” President Milos Zeman said in a press statement. “The U.S. couldn’t send a better ambassador to Prague.”
