Q: Why did the post office recall stamps depicting famous bankers?
A: People were confused about which side to spit on!
Former President Donald Trump sought to name his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to lead the World Bank in 2019, but then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened to block the appointment, according to The Intercept…
As the White House assembled a list of possible successors, Ivanka Trump emerged as a favorite to the then-president, who told The Atlantic that she would have been an excellent choice because “she’s very good with numbers.”
However, according to two sources who spoke to The Intercept, the discussion surrounding Ivanka Trump’s possible ascent to the top of the World Bank was not simply from the Washington, DC rumor mill.
Then-President Trump wanted his daughter in the role, and Mnuchin had to step in to prevent the selection.
“It came incredibly close to happening,” a source told The Intercept.
When contacted by The Intercept, representatives for Mnuchin and Ivanka Trump did not respond for comment. Queries from the news outlet to the World Bank and the Trump Organization also yielded no response.
Imagine the grifters running the world bank? The mind boggles.
