In his bombshell White House-insider bestseller Fire and Fury, the author Michael Wolff wrote that Ivanka Trump aspires to a higher achievement than an appointment from her father: to be the first female U.S. president.

Ivana Trump - first wife of Donald Trump, and mother to Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump - said her daugter "likes" the president's third and current wife, Melania Trump, just "fine" because the first lady was not the woman who caused Ivana and Donald Trump to divorce.

"I remember thinking, 'Okay, we see Ivanka and her husband Jared as moderating influences on this president, '" she said.

Trump called his daughter a 'natural diplomat, ' and said he considered naming her both to run the World Bank or serve as the nation's representative at the United Nations, where Nikki Haley's departure created a vacancy.

"But she would've been incredible", he added. "She's got a great calmness ..." "She's created millions of jobs, and I had no idea she'd be that successful". "She's very hard to understand in terms of intuiting whether there's an inner life there".

Trump wound up nominating David Malpass, the Treasury undersecretary for global affairs, to be president of the World Bank in February.

In her 2009 memoir The Trump Card, Ivanka Trump wrote that an "idiot" asked her if the New York Post's headline "Best Sex I've Ever Had", quoting Maples, was true.

The president said he also was also proud of his other children.

'And Tiffany's doing extremely well, ' Trump said of his daughter, who is a student at Georgetown Law School.

Trump said Ivanka had a "tremendous presence when walks into the room" and stayed calm under pressure. 'Don is, uh, he's enjoying politics; actually, it's very good, ' he said. "She reacts very well-that's usually a genetic thing, but it's one of those things, nevertheless".
