Ivanka Trump Shoots Down UN Ambassador Chatter

Business Insider reports:

When Nikki Haley announced her impending resignation as US ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday, people immediately began speculating online that President Donald Trump may nominate his own daughter, Ivanka, to fill the position.

Ivanka quickly shot down the prospect on Tuesday evening, tweeting, “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.”

Before Ivanka’s tweet, even CNN pundits were discussing the possibility of her as UN ambassador as they waited for the president and Haley to officially announce Haley’s resignation. She’ll remain in her role through the end of the year.
