President Donald Trump’s senior advisor, Ivanka Trump, told interviewers with the Associated Press that she turned down the World Bank job — suggesting that she is happy with her current role in the White House. She was interviewed during her trip to Africa, which was intended to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) initiative. Said initiative is designed to encourage women’s employment in developing countries.

Ivanka said that her father presented the job opportunity to her as “a question,” and she responded by telling him that she was “happy with the work” she’s doing. The senior advisor also aided the selection process for the job. According to Ivanka, David Malpass — the successful applicant — will do an “incredible job.”

When Ivanka was pressed about other top jobs that her father had approached her about, she said that she’d “keep that between” them. She also said that she isn’t planning to run for office in the future — a possibility that people have been both supportive and critical of, as The Inquisitr reported.

In the same Associated Press interview, Ivanka said that her trip, along with first lady Melania Trump’s, proves the Trump administration’s “commitment to Africa.” She also added that she hopes her father will visit, per The Squamish Chief.

“I’ve been deeply, deeply inspired by my trip here. And I think he will be as well.”

As TIME reports, Ivanka claims that she’s not worried about the contents of the Mueller report, which the Department of Justice is expected to reveal on Thursday.

“I knew that there was no collusion. I knew that there was no obstruction and this was affirmed in the Mueller report and Attorney General Barr’s subsequent summary.”

The 400-page report — which is the result of search warrants, indictments, and more than 2,300 subpoenas — will censor “sensitive information” using a color code, per The Inquisitr.

Ivanka said that she stands by her previous statement that President Trump was not involved in giving security clearances to her or her husband, Jared Kushner.

“I have no evidence to the contrary.”

Former New York congresswoman Nan Hayworth said that she’s a “big fan of Ivanka Trump” during a recent Fox News appearance. Hayworth discussed Ivanka’s potential to run for the presidency with host Ed Henry and co-panelist Jessica Tarlov.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with her on a couple of projects. She is intelligent, she is articulate, she is effective. And she deeply cares.”
