Ivanka Trump could be the next head of the World Bank along with other candidates, including former UN ambassador Nikki Haley. It is thought that Ivanka is a possibility after being the driving force behind a $ 1 billion World Bank fund, funded by Saudi Arabia to promote women entrepreneurship. Outgoing President Jim Yong Kim abruptly announced Monday that he was cutting his tenure as president of the bank more than three years before the expiration of his second term. This opened the field to Ivanka, as did Haley who resigned the ambassador last month, the Financial Times reported on Friday.

Former US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley listens to a speaker during a UN Security Council last month. Prior to becoming her father's advisor to the White House, Ivanka served as executive vice president of the Trump Organization. She began her career as a model before moving into business and accompanying her father to the successful TV meeting "The Apprentice". Other names include Undersecretary of the Treasury for International Affairs David Malpass and Mark Green, head of the US Agency for International Development, according to the newspaper. The Treasury Department declined to comment on potential candidates. The department received a "significant number of recommendations," a spokesman said. "We are starting the internal review process for a US candidate and we are looking forward to working with governors to select a new leader." Under an unwritten agreement, the United States, which is the largest shareholder in the bank, have always chosen its leader since the institution was founded after the second world war. But the success of an American candidate no longer seems completely certain.

Trump's administration has opposed globalist institutions like the World Bank, but has now been charged with suggesting someone for the role. The World Bank Council said Thursday that it will begin nominations for a new leader at the beginning of next month and will appoint a replacement for Kim by mid-April.
