Both of Donald Trump's ex-wives, Ivana Trump and Marla Maples, are angling to get something out of having been married to the man in addition to children and what is hopefully a hefty divorce settlement.

Ivana, Donald's first wife and mother to the Children of the Corn, is hoping to be ambassador to the Czech Republic. The skier/socialite, who was born in The Country Formerly Known as Czechoslovakia, told the New York Post that she has the qualifications:

[That] is where I’m from and my language and everybody knows me. I’m quite known all around the world. Not only in America. I have written three books, and they were translated in 40 countries in 25 languages. I’m known by the name Ivana. I really did not need the name Trump.


Marla Maples, the woman with whom Donald cheated on Ivana and then married for a while, wants to be a UN ambassador to an African country.

Again, the New York Post reports, “She has volunteered in Africa and she has taken Tiffany [her daughter with Trump] there recently.”

Happy birthday @itsmarlamaples I ❤️ you to the 🌝and 🌎🔙

Donald will have to pull a whole bunch of strings, since the president doesn't appoint UN ambassadors. He only gets to appoint the US ambassador to the UN. But what's to stop him?

Nepotism has been a consistent strain in his campaign. Trump's eldest children are on his transition team, and he's been bending the rules to keep them by his side.

Despite a federal anti-nepotism law, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner is meeting with lawyers to try and get around it and into the White House.


What are laws anyway?
