Trump Had to Be Blocked From Appointing Ivanka to Head Up World Bank
The Intercept’s Ryan Grim and Max Ufberg say two sources told them that Donald Trump sought to appoint his daughter Ivanka to head up the World Bank in 2019, but then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened to block the appointment.
Not surprisingly, Trump supporters were completely outraged by the news, claiming who better than Ivanka Trump to put developing countries on the right path to greater wealth and prosperity - citing her financial expertise at hawking tacky, overpriced jewelry, handbags, and accessories over the years - simply by referencing her father and the “Trump” name.
I mean, talk about the fox having the keys to the hen house, how about this - “Hi, is this World Bank? Well, great! Say, I’d like to take out a loan for five billion dollars. Approved? Gee, that’s just swell! Thanks a big bunch sweetie. Now, be sure and say hello to Jared and the grandkids for me.” Why, only the most hardened libtard would have a problem with such a sweet conversation like that.
Hell, and while we’re at it, why not just hand over the launch codes to Ivanka also? I’m sure she, Jared, and their lovely kids - could have countless hours of fun playing with those. And, you know what’s funny? Now that Joe Biden is our President and knowing what nice folks those Trump supporters are, I’m sure they’d have no problem whatsoever if Biden did the same thing, and tried appointing Hunter to head up World Bank. He and Ivanka seem to be equally qualified.
Of course, in all fairness, Princess Ivanka is no less qualified to lead the World Bank, than her father was to be President of the United States. Why, word has it, Trump only abandoned the Ivanka appointment, after Mnuchin informed him the World Bank had no ATMs in the DC area. Now, if any of you are finding this nepotism rather disconcerting, just look on the positive side. At least Trump didn’t try and appoint Don Jr. to be our Drug Czar.
