WASHINGTON (JTA) — Ivanka Trump counted herself out as ambassador to the United Nations.
“It is an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley,” President Donald Trump’s daughter and top adviser said Tuesday after Trump spurred speculation that he would name her to the post after Nikki Haley announced she was leaving the job. “That replacement will not be me.”
Trump said earlier that “Ivanka would be dynamite” as ambassador. “I think Ivanka would be incredible.”
Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, who is also a top adviser to Trump, are Jewish.
