Fed Chair Yellen Said to Impress Trump in Interview

Updated on

President Donald Trump said he’s thinking about giving Janet Yellen another term as U.S. Federal Reserve chair as he balances the desire to put his stamp on the central bank with the risk of changing leadership amid a stock market rally.
