Trump nominates World Bank critic David Malpass to lead institution
President Donald Trump on Wednesday tapped a World Bank critic described as a "happy warrior" of pro-growth policies to lead one of the world's primary development lending institutions.
David Malpass, a senior official in the Treasury Department, is a controversial choice but if Trump wins the support of a majority the bank's shareholders, especially European nations, he would have the opportunity to reshape the bank.
Trump said called Malpass "an extraordinary man" who is the "right person" to lead the institution.
