The possibility surfaced when President Donald Trump no less brought up the idea when he spoke to the media on the White House lawn. Trump told reporters that he heard his daughter’s name being mentioned for the post.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Trump: Ivanka would be &quot;dynamite&quot; as UN ambassador <a href="https://t.co/qIJroRG3jb">https://t.co/qIJroRG3jb</a> <a href="https://t.co/rNtmVXoUa6">pic.twitter.com/rNtmVXoUa6</a></p>&mdash; The Hill (@thehill) <a href="https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1049793908761333760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Trump said that if he chooses Ivanka to replace Haley, he would be accused of nepotism. Still, he again reaped praises on her eldest daughter describing her as “dynamite” and saying that “there is no one more qualified in the world to become the next US ambassador to the UN than Ivanka.”

The President said: “I’ve heard Ivanka, how good would Ivanka be? It has nothing to do with nepotism but people who know that Ivanka would be dynamite. I’d be accused of nepotism even if there’s no one more competent in the world.”

Ivanka herself, however, ruled out the possibility that the post would be offered to her. She took to Twitter to say: “It’s an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley. That replacement will not be me.”

Before that, Ivanka also praised Haley for doing a great job in the UN.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ambassador Haley has served America with dignity + distinction. <br>She is a bold reformer and has been an unwavering champion of truth, principled realism and integrity within the United Nations.<br>Jared and I are grateful for her friendship — a true blessing in our lives! ���� <a href="https://t.co/sidkwXzPZB">pic.twitter.com/sidkwXzPZB</a></p>&mdash; Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1049684207923023873?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

The President also mentioned that he’s considering Dina Powell for the position. Powell previously held the job of being the president’s deputy national security adviser. She then focused on Middle East policy but left her post at the start of this year. Powell opted to join Harvard University after as a non-resident senior fellow.

Trump also said that he’s looking at several names for Haley’s replacement, but other than Powell did not specify his other options.

Haley will step down at the end of the year. She and the President both stressed that it was an amicable departure.
