1. SOUNDBITE (English) Ivanka Trump, White House Senior adviser:
"He did ask me about that, but I love the work that I am doing and myself and (Treasury) Secretary (Steve) Mnuchin, we oversaw the process of selecting the final candidate and bringing multiple candidates to the president, ultimately for him to make the final decision. But we had a strong preference, David Malpass, was unanimously confirmed and he was going to do an unbelievable job. He also cares deeply about women's economic empowerment and knows that the mission of the World Bank is to eradicate poverty and one of the smartest ways to do that is by targeting women. The education of women and girls, skills training, economic opportunities. So we're very aligned and I'm incredibly excited to work with him and we're here at a World Bank conference doing exactly that."
Catherine Lucey, AP White House reporter (Off-camera) But he did ask you if you'll be interested in taking on that role yourself?
Lucey: And what was his pitch to you?
It was a question.
Lucey: And you said no?
I'm very happy doing the work that I am doing.
Lucey: Are there any other positions he's asked you about? He's sort of floated you as for U.N. ambassador as well?
