Trump says he considered his daughter Ivanka to lead the World Bank

Trump says he considered his daughter Ivanka to lead the World Bank”

In his bombshell White House-insider bestseller Fire and Fury, the author Michael Wolff wrote that Ivanka Trump aspires to a higher achievement than an appointment from her father: to be the first female U.S. president.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he had considered his eldest daughter for two high-profile global positions.

In an interview published by the Atlantic on Friday, the president praised his daughter's performance as a White House adviser as a "natural diplomat" and foreshadowed her future as a formidable presidential candidate.

When asked why he didn't nominate Ivanka to be a United Nations ambassador, the president said he would be called out for nepotism.

"If she ever wanted to run for president", he said, "I think she'd be very, very hard to beat".

"But she would've been incredible", he added. For example, Plott describes how inside Ivanka's all-white office, she had a seemingly out-of-place book on the Burning Man festival. "But I don't profess to be a political savant", she said at the time.

He ended up nominating David Malpass, the Treasury undersecretary for worldwide affairs, who was unanimously approved by its executive board last week.

The president also seemingly took credit for Ivanka's "great calmness" claiming that it's usually a genetic trait.

Trump talked about his children to the magazine and said he was proud of them. "And Tiffany's doing extremely well.

She would've been great at that because she's very good with numbers", Trump said. Don is, uh, he's enjoying politics; actually, it's very good. "I've seen her under tremendous stress and pressure", he said. "I mean, the children - the children have been very, very good".

"When her parents divorced - in a very public, tabloid-based manner - when she was 9 years old, it really jarred her in a way it would any child", she said.
