When asked if Mr Trump had approached her about other top jobs, Ms Trump said she would "keep that between" the two of them, also ruling out a run for political office in her future, AP said.

The president recently told The Atlantic: "I even thought of Ivanka for the World Bank".

"He did", Ivanka said - when asked if the President offered her the job.

Speaking at a press conference during her trip to Africa, Ivanka confirmed her father had offered her the role which ultimately went to David Malpass.

In an interview last week, Trump said he had considered his daughter for a number of different roles, including U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, as he believes she is "a natural diplomat".

Currently, Ivanka serves as a White House adviser to her father and undertakes work on issues such as workforce development and women's empowerment.

She added that Mr Malpass would do an "incredible job".

Asked to describe the nature of her father's pitch, Ivanka replied, "It was a question".

When asked why he didn't nominate her, Trump said,"If I did, they'd say nepotism, when it would have had nothing to do with nepotism".

Ivanka's role in the Trump administration has been a consistent point of controversy and led to accusations of nepotism.

She also said she stood by a previous statement that the president had no involvement in granting security clearances to her or her husband, Jared Kushner, saying, "I have no evidence to the contrary".

White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump speaks during an interview with The Associated Press, Wednesday April 17, 2019, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, where Trump is promoting a White House global economic program for women.

Trump is not the first president in United States history to bring members of his family into key White House positions. At the time, The Nation magazine slammed the move as "the greatest example of nepotism this land has ever seen".
