Wow, wouldn’t that be something?
With Nikki Haley leaving the post at the end of the year, President Trump has a gap to fill.
A BIG gap to fill.
Honestly, although I did not like her during the campaign, I have to say Haley has done a phenomenal job as Ambassador to the U.N.
So they are big shoes to fill, and it’s a big job. Not because the U.N. is so important, but because it’s the Lion’s Den. The Swamp on Steroids.
So who could Trump send in there?
Perhaps….a Trump! As in Ivanka.
President Trump tweeted about the idea today, but seemed to kill the possibility:
Newsweek also picked up on the story:
White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump would be “incredible” serving as the country’s ambassador to the United Nations, and “everyone” wants the first daughter to replace Nikki Haley, but “chants of nepotism” made it unlikely, according to President Donald Trump on Friday.
The president was referring to speculation over his eldest daughter leaving Washington and heading to New York to take over after Haley leaves at the end of 2018. It’s unclear exactly who he meant by “everyone.”
“So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador. She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job,” Trump tweeted.
Ivanka Trump immediately pushed back Tuesday on any notion of her leaving the White House.
Just hours earlier, Haley had sat beside Trump in the Oval Office to announce her future departure and offer praise to the president, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
“It is an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley. That replacement will not be me,” Ivanka Trump tweeted.
Is This Just The Art of the Deal?
Many have suggested that Trump's downplay of the idea is actually quite the reverse.
They think this is a classic Trump move, the "Art of the Deal" so to speak. Float the name out there even though you're saying it won't happen just to see what kind of reaction it gets.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if that's what he was doing.
Testing the waters, and if the waters appear warmer than anticipated....? Who knows!
What Do You Think?
Would Ivanka make a great Ambassador to the U.N.?
Who else would you pick?
