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.
