Despite their disparate political beliefs and the fact that there is no actual confirmation that Anna Wintour is being considered for an ambassador position, Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to endorse her.
He Tweeted yesterday,
I am happy to hear that Pres.Obama is considering giving Anna Wintour @voguemagazine an ambassadorship. She is a winner & really smart!
We can’t disagree, but we’re a little…surprised. In this past election, Trump endorsed and threw tons of money at the Romney campaign, and has said some pretty nasty things about the current president, for whom Wintour was a top-tier fundraiser.
We guess they aren’t total enemies though. Apparently, Wintour once talked Trump into letting Marc Jacobs use the Plaza ballroom for a show early in his career, when he was too broke to pay for a venue. Wintour also once offered Ivanka Trump a job at Vogue. Also, they’re both tennis fans and we all know how much Anna Wintour loves tennis.
While it’s nice that they can put aside their political differences and be friends, let’s be real: This endorsement doesn’t necessarily bode well for Wintour if she does actually want the position.
