IVANKA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Ivanka Trump is the eldest daughter of Donald Trump. And a senior adviser in his White House. And, according to her, she could have been the head of the World Bank, too. In an interview with the Associated Press in the Ivory Coast (she’s in Africa along with the head of USAID) Ivanka Trump said she talked to her father about the opening but decided against the job — preferring to stay on in her current role, which has a very fuzzy job description but puts her in the mix on virtually every issue that comes across her father’s desk. Trump himself is effusive when talking about Ivanka. In a recent interview with The Atlantic, Trump says his eldest daughter ‘would’ve been great at the United Nations’ and acknowledged that ‘I even thought of Ivanka for the World Bank. … She would’ve been great at that because she’s very good with numbers’…That’s not happening. Yet. (Ivanka told the AP that she does not see a run for elected office in her future.) But whatever Ivanka Trump winds up doing in the future when it comes to politics, the fact that her father basically sees her as a perfect fit for every position in government — including his own — is a telling window into a) how much power she has in this White House and b) how little Trump differentiates between his personal life and his day job.”
