President Donald Trump is expected to tap David Malpass to lead the World Bank, despite the Treasury official’s documented conservative critiques of the institution.

According to a Monday Politico report, Malpass has said that international bodies like the World Bank “have grown larger and more intrusive” and “the challenge of refocusing them has become urgent and more difficult.”

The administration will announce its choice on Wednesday.
