President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, who works as a White House adviser, is one of the names being considered as a replacement for The World Bank's outgoing president, Jim Yong Kim, the Financial Times reported Friday.
The DC-based World Bank, founded after World War II to finance economic-development projects in emerging economies, has traditionally been led by an American. Kim's sudden departure from the bank came as a surprise to employees and leaves the bank's future uncertain.
The Trump administration, which has been wary of and even hostile toward Western-led international institutions like the World Bank, will now be tasked with submitting a recommendation to the bank's board.

Wow, the world really needs to stop giving the US so much power.
Putin :" keikaku means plan, comrade. "

At one point they could trust the Republicans and the Democrats to at least take THAT part seriously. But in their zeal to own the libs, the GOP, who doesn't really give a shit what anybody thinks, was content to let Trump loose like a bull in a china shop. It will sink them. But it will also fuck America in the process. One hell of a backfire from the nefarious planmakers.

Okay, that would legitimately be fucking hilarious. A "fashion" designer who built her brand off her family's name going to head the World Fucking Bank.
I would love to see how those meetings would go between her, and ya'know, actual economists and financial experts.

Seems like a good fit, she knows a lot about bankrupting her own business so she should be an expert in bankrupting developing countries /s

But seriously what the fuck
Her Dad bankrupted several Casinos, whose sole purpose is to take money from people and managed to take Presidency. The world is now qualifying the most unqualified.

I don't know why they keep putting themselves in the crosshairs like this. Maybe they think more responsibility means more safety.

Who nominates these leaders anyway?

Just like she was supposed to be the Ambassador to the UN. They float her name to make it seems like she's being considered for big positions.

Than again, Heather Nauert got the UN gig so who the fuck knows at this point.

This is clearly a joke someone told in the break room and taken seriously by an innocent bystander.

There is no fucking way in hell this can happen, then again, I thought the same about Trump.

Previous guy was appointed by Obama for two terms. A physician and health care advocate.

Bit from Reuters:

Kim, appointed twice by former U.S. President Barack Obama for five-year terms, had pushed financing for green energy projects and largely dropped support for coal power investments, but had avoided public clashes with the Trump administration, which has made reviving the U.S. coal sector a priority.
Just last month, the World Bank announced it would double its investments to fight climate change to around $200 billion over the next five years.
Kim told World Bank employees in an email that he was leaving the world’s largest lender and donor to poor and middle-income countries on Feb. 1 to join a private-sector firm focused on infrastructure investments in the developing world.
“The opportunity to join the private sector was unexpected, but I’ve concluded that this is the path through which I will be able to make the largest impact on major global issues like climate change and the infrastructure deficit in emerging markets,” Kim said.
Kim said details about his new job would be released later. The physician and former Dartmouth College president said he would also rejoin the board of Partners in Health, a health advocacy group he co-founded 30 years ago.

Donald probably heard that name and thought to himself, "Wow, we can do that? Because that would make talks with North Korea much smoother if we could replace him with Ivanka."
