Ivanka Trump is Reportedly Under Consideration to Lead World Bank

President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, who works as a White House adviser, is one of the names being considered as a replacement for outgoing World Bank president Jim Yong Kim, the Financial Times reported on Friday. Other possible nominees to lead the bank, according to the paper, include former UN ambassador Nikki Haley, undersecretary of the Treasury for International Affairs, David Malpass, and United States Agency for International Development director Mark Green. The controversial Washington D.C.-based international financial institution, which that finances infrastructure projects in developing countries, has traditionally been led by an American. Kim's sudden departure from the bank came as a surprise to employees and leaves the bank's future uncertain. The Trump administration, which has been wary of and even hostile toward Western-led international institutions like the World Bank, will now be tasked with submitting a recommendation to the bank's board.
