& # 39; & # 39; She is a natural diplomat, & # 39; "Trump said." She would have been great in the United States as an example.
Asked why he didn't designate her, Trump replied: & # 39; # 39; If I did, they would say nepotism when it would "I had nothing to do with nepotism. But she would have been unbelievable."

& # 39; & # 39; If she ever would run for president, I think she would be very, very hard to beat Trump added.

& # 39; & # 39; Barron is young, but he has a wonderful potential, & # 39; & # 39; said Trump. & # 39; & # 39; And Tiffany does it very well. Don is, he enjoys politics; In fact, it is very good.
