President Donald Trump considered nominating his daughter to head the World Bank, and she also would have been "great" as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, he said in an interview published Friday.

"If she ever wanted to run for president", Trump said.

"She would've been great at that because she's very good with numbers", the president said. He also revisited a notion he's floated in the past: that she would've been "incredible" as the ambassador to the United Nations. "But she would've been incredible".

The president also harped on his interest in appointing Ivanka to the United Nations ambassadorship after Nikki Haley departed.

"When her parents divorced - in a very public, tabloid-based manner - when she was 9 years old, it really jarred her in a way it would any child", she said.

President Trump doesn't try to hide that he thinks his daughter Ivanka Trump, whom he refers to as "baby" during official meetings, is his most "unique" child. "I was trying to dig up where the first time was that she might have said she was pro-choice, for example, or that she was a huge activist when it came to climate change".

Trump made the claim about his daughter's suitability for the powerful posts in an interview with the Atlantic. And Eric is running the business along with Don, and also very much into politics. I mean, the children-the children have been very, very good, ' Trump said.
