Who Said It: Zeman or Trump?

The connections between the two world leaders keep coming – can you guess who made which controversial remark?

American president-elect Donald Trump’s ties to the Czech Republic began in 1977 when he married Zlín-native Ivana Zelníčková. (The former Mrs. Trump has even put herself forth as a potential candidate for ambassador to the country of her birth.)

Trump’s connection to the country goes beyond the familial; current Czech President Miloš Zeman has been a vocal Trump supporter, endorsing the unlikely candidate during last year’s U.S. presidential election and later penning a congratulatory letter expressing a desire for improved US-Czech relations.

Following his win, Trump invited Zeman to the White House.

The two leaders’ political often intersect: Just like his American counterpoint, Zeman has suggested building a wall to keep out migrants.

And let’s not forget Twitter: the social network is the bull-horn of choice for both Trump and Zeman spokesperson Jiri Ovcacek, who recently set up a separate Twitter account just to blast his own country for creating a center aimed at fighting Russian propaganda.
