Donald Trump is quite a weirdo. While the world may know the newly-elected president of the United States of America for several reasons, Serbia will mostly remember him for one – his incredible infatuation for tennis star Ana Ivanovic.
During a meeting with Ivica Dacic three years ago, the 70-year-old businessman claimed that Ivanovic was the most beautiful woman he had seen in his entire life.
He told Dacic: “She is the most beautiful woman I have seen in my life. Simply the most beautiful.”
Dacic, who was the prime minister of Serbia back then, and is now the Minister of Foreign Affairs, claims that Trump went on talking about Ivanovic for fifteen whole minutes. Trump was in the country to talk about potential business investments, when he went completely off topic, speaking about his admiration of Ivanovic’s beauty.
He said: “For 15 minutes all he talked about was Ana Ivanovic and how she was the most beautiful tennis player and woman in the world.”
Ivanovic is currently married to Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. Trump did manage to meet the 29-year-old back in 2014, and she posted a picture with the businessman on her social media feed with the caption: “Meeting with the boss.”
Trump was elected as the 45th president of the United States of America on Wednesday, and when Dacic was asked why the American had such positive feedback about Serbia, he replied saying: “Ana is the one to take credit, he is fascinated with her beauty.”
Following the election results, these quotes were republished in Serbia. While Ivanovic would no doubt be flattered by the comments, you could forgive her for feeling a bit creeped out. After all, the praise did come from a man who once claimed that he would probably be dating his daughter if they weren’t related.
