Ivanka Trump on List of Possible Candidates to Lead World Bank

Trump Administration Floating Some Names For Last Head Of The World Bank

Possible names are already floating around Washington, including David Malpass, a current top Treasury official on global affairs, Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the UN, Mark Green, head of the US Agency for worldwide Development, and even Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter.

Ivanka Trump is reportedly in the running as a possible candidate to take over as head of the World Bank.

Kim abruptly announced Monday he was cutting short his tenure as the bank's president more than three years before his second term was due to end.

The Treasury Department told AFP on Friday it was not going to make statements about potential candidates.

The first competitive process for a World Bank president occurred in 2012, when Mr. Kim, a former Dartmouth professor nominated by President Barack Obama, was selected for the job.

Ivanka Trump, 37, serves as a senior adviser to the president; she shut down her own fashion label in July, saying that she would focus on her job in the White House.

ESPN Releases Final Prediction For Cowboys-Rams
The Patriots are consistent in the playoffs, having made it to at least the Conference Championship for seven straight years. According to several reports, the league has had discussions about moving the game to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Ivanka, 37, was the driving force behind a billion dollar Saudi-supported World Bank fund to promote entrepreneurship by women in 2017.

"I think frankly right now people in the bank are anxious about how do we protect the institution", former senior World Bank official told the Financial Times.

'We are beginning the internal review process for a United States nominee, ' they said.

But the success of a USA candidate no longer appears completely assured.

The World Bank board has started an "open, merit-based and transparent" selection process, which means that the candidate choice may not depend on nationality.

The bank's statement also said the new director should have "a firm commitment to and appreciation for multilateral cooperation", a phrase that draws a contrast with the views of some Trump administration officials who have questioned the value of multilateralism, and of institutions like the World Bank.
