President Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, would be “dynamite” as the ambassador to the United Nations after Nikki Haley announced she would resign her post later this year.
“I want to tell you, the people… know that Ivanka would be dynamite. But, you know, I’d then be accused of nepotism, if you can believe it,” Trump told reporters as he prepared to depart the White House for a campaign rally in Iowa.
“I think Ivanka would be incredible,” he continued. “You’d be accused of nepotism, even though I’m not sure there’s anybody more competent in the world.”
