USA 2019: crazy continues to be the order of the day (Part Two)

On 8 January 2019 the current President of the World Bank Group Jim Yong Kim announced he would be stepping down on 1 February this year.

US President Donald Trump appears to be considering his daughter for appointment as the new bank president. 

A position which has an after tax salary package of est. US$878,391 plus per year. The package contains a supplemental allowance of $89,600 to cover expenses. As a U.S. citizen, the president receives a tax allowance to cover the estimated taxes on salary and benefits. In addition to a pension, the president receives a supplemental retirement benefit equal to 5 percent of annual salary.

Financial Review, 16 January 2018:

Ivanka Trump is on a list of potential successors to Jim Yong Kim, who unexpectedly quit this past week as president of the World Bank, the Financial Times reported.

Other people being considered for the role include David Malpass, a current top US Treasury official on international affairs, Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the UN and Mark Green, head of the US Agency for International Development, the FT reported.

Mr Kim is stepping down after six years at the helm of the Washington-based bank. 

He was nominated for both a first and second term by President Barack Obama. He is leaving to take a job at investment firm Global Infrastructure Partners.

Kristalina Georgieva, who has been chief executive at the bank since 2017, will serve as interim president until a successor for Mr Kim is named.

President Donald Trump however, will wield strong influence in choosing Mr Kim's successor, according to Reuters, as the US holds a controlling share of the World Bank's voting rights. The bank president has traditionally been an American chosen by the US administration……

Ivanka Trump is an advisor to her father on job creation and economic empowerment, workforce development and entrepreneurship. She's married to Jared Kushner, also an advisor to President Donald Trump.

Ivanka Trump is seriously being considered for the position of president of a bank which awards major contracts around the world worth billions of dollars annually?

The same Ivanka Trump with this background…..

In December 2018 it was announced that the Trump Foundation would be dissolved under supervision of the Manhattan Supreme Court and its remaining funds would be dispersed among reputable charities. The court case continues.

 By December 2017 it was being reported by GQ magazine that: Thanks to an overlooked filing made in federal court this past summer, we can now add a jewelry business to the list of Trump family enterprises that allegedly served as vehicles to fraudulently hide the assets of ultra-rich foreigners with checkered backgrounds. In late June, the Commercial Bank of Dubai sought—and later received—permission to subpoena Ivanka Trump’s now-defunct fine jewelry line, claiming its diamonds were used in a massive scheme to hide roughly $100 million that was owed to the bank, according to filings at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
