Trump is Not Going to Scare Janet Yellen Out of Town, Says Yellen



Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Thursday that she will fill out her term, even though Republican Donald Trump will serve as president starting in 2017.

Asked during a congressional hearing if she could imagine any circumstances in which she could resign early, Yellen responded, "no, I cannot."

"It is fully my intention to serve out that term," Yellen said of her term that ends in February of 2018.
