ivanka Trump floated as possible World Bank president: report

Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump and a White House adviser, is being floated as a possible president of the World Bank, the Financial Times reported without attribution. The report said other names "floating around Washington" include Treasury official David Malpass, former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, and Mark Green, the head of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The Treasury Department says it's beginning the process to make a selection, which typically but doesn't have to go to an American. Non-American alternatives include Nigerian economist Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Rwandan economist Donald Kaberuka and Indonesian finance minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati, the report said. Jim Kim resigned as World Bank president to work at a private-equity fund.

3. Once again, I call bullshit

Names "floating around Washington" are "reported without attribution." The writer of the article could just have made up the story.

This is a useless article and demonstrates extremely poor journalism. Did marketwatch.com really need some clickbait to titillate their readers?

Lame. And stupid.

6. Somebody elsewhere said

she's qualified because she has lots of experience in money laundering. (It's the family business, after all.)

5. Floated by whom? The article doesn't actually provide

Any context as to who floated the name! How do I know it wasn’t two people in a bar laughing about it as a joke?
