Ivanka Trump Says She Will Not Be Nikki Haley’s Successor as UN Ambassador

 

There’s been some speculation that Ivanka Trump would succeed Nikki Haley as UN ambassador––speculation President Donald Trump himself addressed today.

He said she would be great for the job, but he would be criticized for nepotism.

But with speculation growing about this being an actual possibility, the First Daughter and advisor to the President tweeted she won’t be Haley’s successor:

“It is an honor to serve in the White House,” she tweeted, “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.”

In announcing her decision to step down today, Haley offered some strong words of praise for the Trump family, including Ivanka and Jared Kushner.
