Last March Donald Trump had this to say on the gold standard in a television interview with Pittsburgh Action News:
"In some ways I like the gold standard and there is something very nice about the gold standard... We used to have a very solid country because it was based on a gold standard and we do not have that anymore...It would be very very hard to do at this point and one of the problems is we do not have the gold - other places have the gold"...-RW
In the same Pittsburg Action News interview, Mr. Trump was equivocal on his views on whether the Fed should be disbanded. "We have very conservative Republicans who like the Federal Reserve, we have some who think it should be disbanded. I have no opinion yet. I've not really formed an opinion."
