Well, guess that settles it.
“So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador. She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job,” the president wrote on Twitter.

But—despite some speculation online in the wake of Nikki Haley announcing she would resign from the position—everyone already knew that Ivanka Trump wouldn’t be taking the job. Because she already said so several days ago.
Hours after Haley announced her resignation, the president’s daughter tried to put rest some of the speculation about her political future to rest.
“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,” she wrote.

Earlier this week, the president said his daughter would be “dynamite” in the role but also cautioned that he would be accused of nepotism if he were to name her as Haley’s replacement.
So basically the president just confirmed what everyone already knew.
