Powell rejects Trump proposal


Dina Powell, the American top woman of investment bank Goldman Sachs, has rejected the proposal of US President Donald Trump to succeed Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations. US media report.

Powell let Trump know by telephone on Thursday that she was honored with Trump’s request, but that she has no interest in the position. According to her, the job would come at the wrong time because of her family. However, she told Trump to informally inform the White House.

Trump and Powell had been in discussion since the beginning of the week about the possible follow-up of Haley, who unexpectedly announced her departure on Tuesday. Powell, who is close to Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, and her husband Jared Kushner, previously worked under Trump as a deputy national security advisor.

Trump had said earlier this week that he thought Powell would find the job “great,” but that he also spoke to other candidates. ,, We certainly look at Dina and we look at others. There are a lot of talented people “, says Trump.

Not everyone in and around the Trump government were enthusiastic about Powell as a possible new UN ambassador. For example, national security advisor John Bolton would have been against her appointment.
