CNN’s Jim Acosta: Ivanka ‘Laughed’ Over Speculation She Will Replace Nikki Haley

Despite all the speculation of the last few hours, it seems Ivanka Trump doesn’t plan on taking Nikki Haley‘s place as America’s Ambassador to the United Nations.

Political observers have been speculating about who will replace Haley now that it’s been confirmed she will leave the Trump Administration at the end of the year. As Mediaite‘s Caleb Howe previously noted, many have concluded there is a greater-than-zero probability that President Donald Trump will appoint either his daughter or her husband, Jared Kushner, to become the next UN envoy.

CNN’s Jim Acosta delivered a report from the White House today, and according to him, Ivanka “laughed” when she heard that political speculators consider her one of Haley’s most likely successors. As Acosta noted, it was “not a total denial” from the First Daughter.
