Trump considers Ivanka for UN ambassador after he said he wouldn't


The Trump White House is thinking of nominating Ivanka Trump for U.N. ambassador — backtracking on a claim that he wouldn't pick his favorite child for the job.

Another broken promise from the Trump administration.

After saying back in October that he wouldn't nominate first daughter Ivanka Trump as U.N. ambassador over "nepotism" concerns, Trump is now reportedly considering appointing his clothing designer scion to the important diplomatic role, according to Bloomberg News.

The news comes after Trump's last U.N. ambassador nominee, Heather Nauert, withdrew her nomination after a background check revealed that she employed a nanny who wasn't legally allowed to work in the U.S.

Of course, hinging her withdrawal solely on that would be odd, given that the Trump Organization knowingly hired undocumented workers for years. If Nauert is not fit to serve, then neither are Trump or his daughter Ivanka, for that matter.

Nevertheless, Ivanka Trump's name is being tossed around as a potential nominee to fill the role vacated by Nikki Haley.

Bloomberg News' report says that Ivanka Trump would only be considered if "no front-runner emerges."

Still, it's unclear how Ivanka Trump would fare in the job after she had to sit stonefaced as some of the most important world leaders and foreign policy experts laughed at her father and his administration on Monday at the Munich Security Conference.
