    "Donald Trump's daughter is reportedly one of a handful of people being considered as the new head of the World Bank.

    "The US president’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump has been mentioned as a possible successor to Jim Yong Kim, who stood down earlier this week, three and a half years before his term was up.

    "The sudden departure of Mr Kim, who was first appointed by former president Barack Obama in 2011 and re-elected in 2016, means Mr Trump can now choose a successor.

    "According to the Financial Times, names being thrown into the mix for the role include Ivanka Trump, Treasury official David Malpass, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and head of the US Agency for International Development Mark Green."

    The World Bank board says its next president should have a "proven track record of leadership", "experience in managing large organizations with international exposure and familiarity with the public sector."

    Ivanka Trump could be given MAJOR NEW ROLE by Donald Trump after sudden resignation

    "Mr Kim announced on Monday that he will no longer be the bank’s president, more than three years before his second term was due to end.

    "He had become disliked for his criticism of the institution and for his desire to use the bank as an instrument to promote global development.

    "The bank’s board decides on the new World Bank president, with the voting shares distributed based on how much money each country has given to the bank.

    "The US is the bank’s largest shareholder and has always chosen an American candidate since the institution was founded in 1945."

    It isn't likely anyone named Trump will use the Bank to promote global development.

    US should pull out of Wold Bank, IMF, Bank for International Settlements, and the rest of the global bankster scams.

    Suggesting any Murican should head them, let alone some dilettante like Ivanka, just lends them legitimacy.

    Do you think the IMF and World Bank prop up elite American lifestyles?

    Michael Hudson: America's Monetary Imperialism

    "Each time this global system has broken down over the past century, the major destabilizing force has been American over-reach and the drive by its bankers and bondholders for short-term gains.

    "The dollar-centered financial system is leaving more industrial as well as Third World countries debt-strapped.

    "Its three institutional pillars – the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and World Trade Organization – have imposed monetary, fiscal and financial dependency, most recently by the post-Soviet Baltics, Greece and the rest of southern Europe.

    "The resulting strains are now reaching the point where they are breaking apart the arrangements put in place after World War II."

    Do you think the US dollar would maintain its global reserve currency status without the IMF and World Bank?
