Steve Mnuchin stopped Trump from making Ivanka head of the World Bank

Jim Yong Kim threw the global financial development sector into a state of disarray: The former academic and health official announced he would be stepping down the following month from his role as president of the World Bank…creating worries that the America First champion would pick somebody ill suited for the global role…

As the White House moved to select its new leader, one name very dear to the Trump’s heart kept floating around: his daughter Ivanka Trump…two sources, not authorized to speak publicly, tell The Intercept the talk of Ivanka at the helm went far beyond the realm of Beltway chatter: Trump very much wanted Ivanka as World Bank president, and it was Mnuchin who actually blocked her ascent to the leadership role.

It came incredibly close to happening,” said one well-placed source.

Representatives for Mnuchin and Ivanka Trump did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the World Bank or the Trump Organization.

Since Mnuchin, Ivanka and Meathead won’t comment (yet) don’t expect chapter and verse of how Mnuchin won out. Sooner or later, it will come out. The worst crap always does!
