Donald Trump would likely aim to replace Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen if he’s elected president, though he broadly agrees with her policies.
“I think she’s done a serviceable job,” Trump told Fortune in a wide-ranging interview. “I don’t want to comment on reappointment, but I would be more inclined to put other people in.”
Like Yellen, Trump wants the Fed to keep interest rates low, but he still criticized the central bank. “There are lots of good things that could be done that aren’t being done, amazingly,” Trump told Fortune. He added that he would support granting Congress the ability to audit the Federal Reserve’s decision making, taking some power away from the Federal Reserve.
