The UN migration agency’s member states have rejected President Trump’s nominee for director-general, making it only the second time in the agency’s history that it will not be led by an American.
Ken Isaacs, an executive with a Christian charity, was eliminated after three voting rounds, AFP reported.
Mr Trump’s anti-immigration policies, including separating children from parents, have been widely criticised.
The White House has also proposed cutting UN funding.
Mr Isaacs meanwhile has a history of anti-Islam comments.
