Trump wanted to nominate Ivanka to the United Nations and the World Bank

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

The president revealed that he wanted to nominate Ivanka Trump to the United Nations and the World Bank, reported The Atlantic.

“She’s a natural diplomat,” Trump said. “She would’ve been great at the United Nations, as an example.”

However, Trump said he was afraid of the criticism he would have faced if he chose Ivanka for either position.

“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.”

“I even thought of Ivanka for the World Bank,” Trump added, “She would’ve been great at that because she’s very good with numbers.”

He said his daughter was possessed of a natural calm.

“I’ve seen her under tremendous stress and pressure,” Trump said. “She reacts very well — that’s usually a genetic thing, but it’s one of those things, nevertheless. She’s got a tremendous presence when she walks into the room.”
