Trump Meets With Warsh About Top Fed Job

Kevin Warsh

He had also met with current Fed chair Janet Yellen and White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, who are both in the running for the post, the officials said.

"I have said that I intend to serve out my term as chair, and that I'm really not going to comment on my intentions beyond that", she told reporters, insisting that she had only met Trump once and had not had an opportunity to touch base again.

Trump was critical of Yellen during the 2016 presidential campaign, accusing her of keeping interest rates low to prop up the economy under former President Barack Obama.

Attacks on mayor ratchet up tensions over Puerto Rico
Che read out one of the president's tweets saying that Cruz had been "told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump ". The tweet offended some Puerto Ricans , but Rossello refused to criticize the president.

Mr Warsh is married to Jane Lauder, daughter of Mr Trump's friend Mr Ronald Lauder and a global brand president at the cosmetic company founded by her grandmother, Estee Lauder.

In addition to Warsh and Yellen, others reportedly under consideration for the Fed's top post are Stanford University economist John Taylor and John Allison, the former CEO of BB&T Bank. Her father, Ronald Lauder is a longtime Trump friend. She said last week that she has met with Trump only once since he has taken office and is committed to focusing on the job at hand and not her future. But he's softened his stance since, saying he respects Yellen while professing a commitment to keeping the US dollar and interest rates low.

Treasury bonds jumped higher Friday after news of the Warsh interview with Trump was reported. Her term expires in February. So far, Trump has moved to fill only one of the vacancies, nominating Randal Quarles to the board to be vice chairman for bank supervision.
