Following the sudden announcement of United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley’s resignation on Tuesday, President Donald Trump answered questions on the topic from White House reporters.
Commenting on some of the names being floated as possible replacements, Trump focused on his own daughter, Ivanka, who has served as an adviser.
“I’ve heard a lot of names,” Trump said. “I’ve heard Ivanka. How good would Ivanka be?”
The president said his daughter’s perceived qualifications might not be enough to get her the job, though.
“I think Ivanka would be incredible, but it doesn’t mean I’d pick her,” he said. “Because I’d be accused of nepotism even though I’m not sure there’s anybody more competent in the world.”
