Daughter of US President Donald Trump Ivanka said she won’t take Nikki Haley’s place as ambassador to the United Nations, the US TIME magazine reported on Wednesday.

“I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley,” Ivanka Trump said in a tweet. “That replacement will not be me”.

Ivanka said that it is an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley. That replacement will not be me.

The president said earlier in the day that his daughter would be an “incredible” ambassador to the UN, but “I’d be accused of nepotism”. She and her husband, Jared Kushner, are currently senior advisers to the president on the White House staff.

“I’m not sure there’s anybody more competent,” the president added.

Haley will leave her job as ambassador by the end of the year, the president said earlier in an announcement that surprised many in the White House including Chief of Staff John Kelly and Vice President Mike Pence.

The president said he is considering Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s Dina Powell as a potential replacement along with “others”. Another potential Haley successor is the US ambassador to Germany, Ric Grenell.
