In their joint announcement today, neither President Donald Trump nor former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley gave anything away about who will be replacing her at the U.N. … or did they?
A lot of people think they may have done just that, and the names floating around are Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Haley effusively praised them, especially Jared, referring to him as a “hidden genius.”
Ahead of the official statement on Haley’s resignation but after the news of it leaked, CNN had already floated the idea that Trump might want Ivanka in the job, noting that she has made many efforts to build communication between Trump and Democrats.

CNN is now speculating that Ivanka Trump is taking over as UN ambassador and I want to throw my computer out the window

He’s going to make Ivanka UN Ambassador. Then he’ll run her as VP in 2020. Then she’ll be president, life will finally catch up to House of Cards, and then we can cancel Netflix. What I’m saying is, in the long run, Nikki Haley quitting could save us 8 bucks a month.
