Trump continues his temper tantrum by lashing out at Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.

This is unprecedented, and if not illegal, would certainly threaten the independence of the Federal Reserve. That even sounds alarm bells to many R's in Congress. They would not want that to happen. Analysts have reported that firing Powell would lead to even greater instability in the markets. Details here . . .

This is perhaps Trump's biggest problem: In Washington, you don't get to fire just anyone who disagrees with you. The WH is not Trump Tower, and he isn't lord of the realm (although he wants to be). 


At times I believe he thinks he is still on his TV show ............ YOU"RE FIRED !!!!

 

It's time America fired trump !!!!
