Ivana Trump will not be a US Ambassador in Prague
13.17 clock: Donald Trumps first wife Ivana will be despite US ambitions not US ambassador in the Czech Republic. The White House will nominate the businessman Stephen B. King from the US state of Wisconsin for the post, a spokesman said on Tuesday. The US Senate has yet to approve the staff.
The 68-year-old Ivana Trump had brought herself into the game last year as an ambassador in her native country. But already at the end of June, she told Czech President Milos Zeman on a short visit to Prague that the diplomatic job was probably too labor-intensive for her. “I was completely out of my way,” the 72-year-old told TV Barrandov. “They are a coward of responsibility,” he said.
Ivana Trump, who was born in Zlin, emigrated to America from the then Czechoslovakia in the early 1970s. She was from 1977 to 1991 with the current US president married.
The nomination of Kings caused confusion in the Czech Republic. Media had first reported on diplomatic circles, the republican deputy in the US House of Representatives, Steve King, from Iowa became ambassadors in Prague.

Tillerson: USA tries to restore confidence in Turkey
Tuesday, July 11, 7:57 am:After talks in Turkey, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cautiously expressed his optimism about improving relations with the government in Ankara. “We are starting to regain the trust we have lost in each other,” Tillerson said on Monday at the US Consulate in Istanbul to conclude a two-day visit to Turkey. “They have lost our confidence in a certain way, and we have been theirs,” but they were working to change this, he said.
The minister said, at every meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdoganwill be “the sound” somewhat better. Erdogan had set great expectations on US President Donald Trump’s ambitions in the Republican, but the hope of an improvement in relations had not been fulfilled. The most important issues remain unresolved.
So Washington is not prepared to react to the urge of Turkey to hand over the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, who is blamed in Turkey for the failed military coup one year ago. The US Army continues to support the Kurdish People’s Defense Units in Syria, although Turkey considers it a terrorist organization.
Tillerson traveled to Kuwaiton the morning of the Montagnes . The US Secretary of State wants to talk with the Qatar crisis there. The Gulf Council has been in controversy with Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, accusing Qatar of supporting terrorist groups. The gas-rich small state has so far not responded to the demands of its opponents.
