Reporter: In his first year in office, Ivana sayi is she's given the president advice. I tell him not to speak that much. And tweets are the tweets. And I think -- I don't disagree with him, because he has so much press against him, so, if you say something, his words are going to be twisted immediately. Reporter: When you read your book, you are all about kindness and manners. What about the fact that president trump often uses Twitter to name-call? Well, people are different, you know, I like the good manners. Reporter: But if you heard your children call someone a loser, how would you feel about that? I think they sometimes call the people losers if they are losers. And I don't mind it. And Amy robach with us here tonight. And Amy, you were telling us that Ivana trump says the president offered her as ambassador to the Czech Republic? Reporter: That's right. She told me she would have to say bye-bye to Miami in the winter, bye-bye to New York in the spring and fall and bye-bye to San tropez, where I spend all summer long. So, she's happy where she is. All right, Amy robach tonight. Amy, thank you.
