READ: Donald Trump Tweets ‘Everyone Wants Ivanka Trump to Be the New United Nations Ambassador…But I Can Already Hear the Chants of Nepotism’

Nope.

In a tweet on Friday, President Donald Trump again touted his daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump’s qualifications to replace United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, who will be leaving her post at the end of this year.

For unclear reasons, Ms. Trump’s name arose for the position almost immediately after the announcement of Haley’s resignation, though she insists she does not want the position and the president claims that, despite so-called qualifications, he would be decried for nepotism.

This is at least the second time Donald Trump has indirectly made the suggestion, saying after Haley’s resignation:

“I’ve heard a lot of names. I’ve heard Ivanka. How good would Ivanka be? I think Ivanka would be incredible, but it doesn’t mean I’d pick her. Because I’d be accused of nepotism even though I’m not sure there’s anybody more competent in the world.”

Trump has remained consistent in his lack of clarity as to just who is suggesting this. In today’s tweet, he said that “everyone” wants Ivanka as UN Ambassador, but Twitter users were quick to point out that that wasn’t the case.

Ivanka herself has shot down the notion.

In addition to the wild unpopularity of the idea, others clarified that the appointment would receive cries of nepotism because it would, in fact, be nepotism.
