Trump comes publicly unglued again – rages at his own Fed chair for acting ‘like a golfer who can’t putt’
President Donald Trump resumed his attacks on Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on Wednesday, blaming him for keeping the economy from growing much faster.
In yet another Twitter screed, Trump said, "The only problem we have is Jay Powell and the Fed. He's like a golfer who can't putt, has no touch."
Trump appointed Powell to his position, but repeatedly excoriated him for raising the key interest rate too quickly last year. He has called on the Fed to reverse all of those moves, cutting the rate by a full point, to help the economy and weaken the US dollar.
"Big U.S. growth if he does the right thing, BIG CUT - but don't count on him! So far he has called it wrong, and only let us down," he tweeted.
‘That was anti-Semitism!’ ADL leader rips Trump apart on CNN over ‘disloyalty’ smear of US Jews
President Donald Trump's accusation that American Jews who vote for Democrats are somehow "disloyal" earned him a furious denunciation on CNN Wednesday from Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.
During an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Greenblatt was asked about Trump’s declaration that "any Jewish people" who vote for Democrats have "a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty."
Greenblatt did not hold back in his disgust about what the president said.
Jeff Sessions’ troubling legacy: He may be gone — but his ideas and policies live on
Donald Trump’s former Attorney General Jeff Sessions may have gained some sympathy from the constant attacks he suffered from the president after he recused himself from Robert Mueller’s special investigation. But that should not excuse Sessions from the judgment of historians as they evaluate his leadership of the Justice Department from January 2017 to November 2018. Sessions was arguably the most abusive and disgraceful Attorney General in history.
Sessions previously served as an Alabama Republican Senator since 1997 and he had an extremely conservative voting record. Even before he was a senator, a Republican-controlled Senate refused to appoint Sessions to a Federal District Court judgeship in 1986. This was only the second time in a half century that a federal appointee to the federal judiciary had been rejected by the Senate Judiciary Committee for elevation to the federal bench.
