WASHINGTON (JTA) — Ivanka Trump counted herself out as ambassador to the United Nations.
President Donald Trump’s daughter, as well as a top adviser, made the remarks Tuesday after Nikki Haley announced that she was leaving the job at the end of the year.
“It is 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,” she said after the president spurred speculation that he would name her to the post. “That replacement will not be me.”
