Trump wanted to name his daughter Ivanka at the World Bank

“It is very good with the numbers”: the US President Donald Trump tells, in an interview published Friday, to have considered naming his daughter Ivanka, 37, at the head of the World Bank.

“He's a real diplomat,” says Trump in an interview with The Atlantic. “She would have been great at the United Nations for example (as ambassador of the United States, Ed).

“If I had named it, they would have cried nepotism when it would have nothing to do with nepotism,” he said.

“Very good with the numbers”

Continuing on, the US president added, “I even thought of Ivanka as (lead) the World Bank,” founded in 1944 at Bretton Woods in conjunction with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“She would have been excellent on this post because she is very good with numbers,” he says, referring to his daughter and close friend whose husband, Jared Kushner, is also one of his most influential advisors.

“She is calm, I have seen her in situations of enormous stress, she reacts very well (…) She has a real presence when she enters a room”.

Donald Trump has finally named one of his loyal supporters, David Malpass, to head the “BM”.
