Donald Trump raised eyebrows this week when he appeared to recommend Nigel Farage for UK ambassador to the United States.
Many people would like to see @Nigel_Farage represent Great Britain as their Ambassador to the United States. He would do a great job!

Of course, Trump has no say in terms of whom foreign governments will select to serve as ambassadors to his administration. But what if he did? The team of foreign diplomats to Donald Trump’s America would be an epic bunch, and big league — certainly a more interesting and charismatic crop of ambassadors than those currently serving. For example…
Silvio Berlusconi (Italy)
Bunga Bunga. The orange billionaire and former prime minister is basically an Italian Trump.
Connor McGregor (Ireland)
A natural fit. UFC president Dana White endorsed Trump and even campaigned for the Republican nominee. Trump has more in common with McGregor, the 2016 lightweight champion, than you might think. Trump has spent his fair share of time in the ring, and is the first WWE Hall of Fame member to be elected president.
Diane Kruger (Germany)
Penelope Cruz (Spain)
Paul Manafort (Ukraine)
Trump’s former campaign manager needs a job, and is basically a Ukrainian citizen. Federal investigators are looking into Manafort’s shady foreign connections, so that diplomatic immunity might come in handy.
Lionel Messi (Argentina)
Messi received at least one vote in the U.S. presidential election, so he deserves a consolation prize of sorts. Trump played soccer in high school, which is presumably how he developed the “injury” that prevented him from serving in the Vietnam War. Maybe he’s a fan?
Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe)
The long-serving strongman president recently hinted that he might step down in the near future, so he might be in need of another job.
Crocodile Dundee (Australia)
Technically not a real person, but actor Paul Hogan would have no choice but to stay in character if Trump gets his way.
Dennis Rodman (North Korea)
An early Trump supporter, “The Worm” has already served for years as the unofficial U.S. ambassador to North Korea, and starred in the Vice Travel Guide to North Korea, a documentary/propaganda film for edgy hipsters.
@realDonaldTrump has been a great friend for many years. We don't need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016
