President Trump said Tuesday that his daughter Ivanka Trump would be “dynamite” as an ambassador to the United Nations, but conceded that he would be accused of nepotism if he appointed her to replace outgoing Ambassador Nikki Haley.
“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.”
