The "nepotism!" bells didn't go off when President Trump hired his daughter and son-in-law to work as advisers in the White House, but United Nations ambassador would apparently do the trick.
Trump tweeted on Friday to shut down rumors that he would pick his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to replace outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. "Everyone" wants his daughter in the role, said Trump, but he is simply too disciplined and dedicated to federal government norms to select her for the job.
So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador. She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job.

She would be "incredible," Trump said, echoing his previous claims that there is "nobody more competent" for the role than Ivanka. The first daughter reportedly "laughed off" the idea that she could get the gig, but according to Trump, "everyone" else did not. The president did not explain whether that list of "everyone" included more than just himself and maybe Eric Trump. Alas, if it weren't for all the haters and losers who would surely cry nepotism, Ivanka could bring her "behind the scenes" work to the world stage. Summer Meza
