President Trump considered nominating his elder daughter, Ivanka, to lead the World Bank — because “she’s very good with numbers” — and said she would be “very, very hard to beat” if she decided to make a run for the White House, according to a new report.
In an interview with the Atlantic, Trump called his 37-year-old daughter and senior adviser a “natural diplomat,” saying she “would’ve been great at the United Nations, as an example.”
Asked why he didn’t nominate her as UN ambassador, he replied: “If I did, they’d say nepotism, when it would’ve had nothing to do with nepotism. But she would’ve been incredible.”
The president confirmed that he seriously considered nominating Ivanka for a vacancy leading the World Bank, a rumor that sparked a backlash from his opponents.
