It seems like only yesterday that Dina Powell was leaving the cozy confines of the Trump White House to return to the salt mines at 200 West Street.
And that's because it was only the beginning of the year...
Dina's been back at Goldman for a matter of months, using what she learned inside this ever-changeable administration to guide Goldman's understanding and also pad DJ D-Sol's diversity in management stats. We would have no idea what Dina's day-to-day is like, but it seems as if some of it has been taken up by pining away for the US ambassador to the UN gig...Which is suddenly available...
Dina Powell, a Goldman Sachs executive and former deputy national security advisor to President Donald Trump, has had discussions with senior members of the administration about possibly replacing Nikki Haley as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
In the days leading up to Haley's sudden and surprising resignation Tuesday, senior White House officials reached out to Powell about possibly taking the role, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter.
Let's get two things straight: Dina Powell is a pretty strong choice for UN ambassador in a Trump administration, and it's objectively fucked that she would be nominated for the role.
On the former point, Powell's resume speaks for itself. She is beyond worldly, sees the state of global play from a perspective that's as [and arguably more] useful than that of a career diplomat, can navigate the cultural divide between DC power players and NYC power players, and is most importantly the kind of intelligent globalist cuck that can best temper the current president's instinct to destroy an institution created for the advancement of globalist cuckery.
On the latter point, Dina Powell is now the living embodiment of the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington. If she is indeed nominated and confirmed to take over the UN gig early next year, that would make three turns through that allegorical door in two years time. Can anyone honestly imagine any other administration getting away with lending and borrowing a top Goldman Sachs executive back and forth in key roles?
Dina Powell might make a transformatively wonderful Ambassador to the UN one day, but if that day ever comes, let's not forget that the only reason a qualified, talented and politically unpalatable executive was able to get the job was because a sitting US president had to be convinced that his fashion "magnate" daughter would not get through a Senate committee vote.
