She told the Associated Press on Wednesday that her father raised the job "as a question" and that she told him that she was "happy with the work" she's doing.

"If she ever wanted to run for president, I think she'd be very, very hard to beat", Trump predicted of Ivanka.

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

The top job eventually went to U.S. economist David Malpass, whose selection process involved Ms Trump.

Trump had also suggested that he'd considered offering her a role as United Nations ambassador as a replacement to Nikki Haley. She said he'll do an "incredible job". Her trip was viewed with skepticism in some quarters, given the president's efforts to cut foreign aid and his past derogatory comments about the continent.

Ivory Coast, otherwise known as Cote d'Ivoire, supplies almost a third of the world's cocoa, and local farmers seemingly paid tribute to the industry by presenting Ivanka with a chocolate portrait.

Asked if her father had approached her about other top jobs, Ivanka Trump said she'd "keep that between" them.

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".
