President Donald Trump says he's narrowed down a short list of five people to replace U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley at the United Nations.

Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Iowa on Tuesday that former White House adviser Dina Powell is among those on the short list.

Asked about U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, Trump said he "absolutely" would consider him but would rather keep him where he is because he is "doing such a good job."

Trump earlier told reporters that he has heard his daughter Ivanka Trump's name discussed for the post. He says she'd be "incredible" in the role, but he knows if he selected her he'd be accused of nepotism.

Ivanka Trump later tweeted that she will not replace Haley.
