Trump considered nominating daughter Ivanka for head of World Bank

In an interview with the Atlantic published on Friday, Trump was apparently quite eager to sing his daughter's praises: the author writes that she requested an interview with Ivanka herself and was turned down, but instead got a call that the president wanted to talk to her. "Because she didn't cause me to break up the marriage like the other one-I don't even want to pronounce her name".

"If I did, they'd say nepotism, when it would've had nothing to do with nepotism", he said, "but she would've been incredible". "She reacts very well-that's usually a genetic thing, but it's one of those things, nevertheless".

In January, the Financial Times reported that Trump was also considering Ivanka to replace outgoing World Bank president Jim Yong Kim, rumors that the White House denied. Due to government nepotism regulations, Ivanka's current White House advisory role is unpaid.

The U.S. and China have imposed tariffs on $350 billion worth of each other's goods. Ivanka Trump was 8 years old when her entire family went to Aspen, Colorado, for Christmas.

In 2017 and 2018, Ivanka Trump topped Melania Trump in Forbes' "World's Most Powerful Women" list as "the de facto First Lady as her step-mother" opted to avoid the limelight. The family and Maples collided on the mountain and divorce conversations ensued immediately after.

The piece portrays Ivanka as Trump's heir apparent, and it opens up with this anecdote about how Trump suddenly "lit up" when his daughter suddenly walked on an interview her father was giving for Plott's article.

Both Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner serve as presidential advisers.

She has been involved in World Bank initiatives on women's economic development and has worked closely with the bank's leadership over the past two years, which is why she worked on the nomination, spokeswoman Jessica Ditto said.
