Ivanka Trump claims her father offered her the job of World Bank chief - but she turned it down.

Crowds of female workers appeared to be nuts about the first daughter's arrival, welcoming her with flags reading "We Love U", and she wasted no time to do a little dance. The bank funds development and anti-poverty efforts around the globe.

Earlier she visited a cocoa farm in Adzope, in south-eastern Ivory Coast, where she announced a US AID and World Cocoa Foundation initiative to give US$2 million to female cocoa farmers.

Responding to questions, Ivanka confirmed the story while also insisting that she "loves the work" that she is now doing.

Speaking to the Associated Press news agency during a trip to Ivory Coast, Ms Trump said her father brought the job up with her as "a question", but she refused the offer.

Ms Trump was eventually involved in selecting the new World Bank president, United States economist David Malpass.

Some have also speculated that Ivanka might run for office one day, but she said she doesn't see that happening.

"I knew that there was no collusion". It's been pointed out on multiple occasions that when it comes to fighting for women, Ivanka Trump talks a good game, but is often either passively or actively harming them.

A convert to Judaism, Ivanka Trump said she was concerned about a "rise in anti-Semitism" and said there now was "less support for Israel than Israel has traditionally experienced".

"That's a price that we're paying together", she said.

To be clear: There is nothing wrong with being proud of your kids.

Ivanka Trump said her 7-year-old daughter Arabella recently used her nanny's phone to ask the Siri digital assistant how many people her father had helped get out of prison, after the passage of a criminal justice reform bill Kushner had helped champion.
