Report: Ivanka Trump Is 'Being Considered' For a Different Role In The Administration

President Donald Trump's daughter and senior advisor, Ivanka Trump, is reportedly being considered to serve as president of The World Bank, which was established after World War II to help fund economic-development projects in emerging countries. The organization's current president, Jim Yong Kim, decided to leave unexpectedly, Business Insider reported.

President Trump faced the issue of nepotism before when he considered Ivanka to replace United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley. 

Eventually, he nominated State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert. 

It's unclear if the president would face similar issues with placing Ivanka at The World Bank.

Other potential nominees for the position include Treasury for International Affairs David Malpass, U.S. Agency for International Development director Mark Green and former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, the Financial Times reported.

Unlike other candidates, Ivanka doesn't have experience in international trade economics but she does have business experience. When she was in the private sector, before joining the White House, she was vice president for acquisitions at the Trump Organization and she launched her own clothing line, the Ivanka Trump brand.

The Treasury Department has received "a significant number of recommendations for good candidates" and plans to begin "he internal review process"to select the appropriate candidate, a spokesperson said.
