Bannon Wanted Yellen to Stay as Fed Chair

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon considered endorsing Janet Yellen for a second term as Federal Reserve chair but instead kept quiet as President Donald Trump passed her over in favor of fellow Republican Jerome Powell, reports Bloomberg.

Ousted from the White House in August, Bannon subsequently toyed with urging Trump to reappoint Yellen to lead the Fed, according to a new preface in the paperback edition of “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Nationalist Uprising,” to be released by Penguin today.

“The Breitbart posse is in love with Janet Yellen. If we get behind her, that is the signal of signals -- the realignment of American politics, ” Bannon told the book’s author, Bloomberg’s Joshua Green, in September, several months before he stepped down from the conservative media outlet. “Yellen’s my girl.”

What happened to end the Fed?

Bannon, Trump, the entire crew are a bunch of dumb socialists.
