Trump considered Ivanka for World Bank as she's 'good with numbers'

Trump considered Ivanka for World Bank as she's 'good with numbers'

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. "I've seen her under tremendous stress and pressure", he said.

Trump said that if he did nominate her, "they'd say nepotism, when it would've had nothing to do with nepotism. It responds very well - it's usually genetically predisposed to it", he boasts. That marriage ended in divorce in 1999.

"I don't know if Ivanka Trump has any relevance now", he sniped during panel focusing on a new Atlantic magazine profile of the White House adviser.

It is a pretty clear thing: Ivanka is Donald trump's favorite child.


Melania Trump was slower to embrace her role as first lady, moving from New York City to the White House almost five months after her husband was inaugurated.

First Lady Melania Trump speaks with Ivanka Trump during the presidential inaugural parade for President Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Ivanka Trump "likes" Melania Trump "fine", Donald Trump's first wife Ivana Trump said. This is from an Interview that has led Trump with the US magazine "The Atlantic".

After Ivanka spearheaded an unsuccessful effort to convince the President to stay in the Paris Climate Accords, she hunkered down and selected a "portfolio" of a few key issues, including global women's empowerment and workforce development, that she would focus on exclusively, The Atlantic said. Donald Trump also flew Maples to the mountain resort town, where she stayed in a penthouse. Ivanka Trump was 8 years old when her entire family went to Aspen, Colorado, for Christmas.

Previously, the White House disclosed that Ivanka Trump was involved in the selection process for the post, however, he was not a contender for the job. She wrote in her book that she used the experience to give "shape and meaning" to her life.
