WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Thursday as part of his search for a new candidate for her position, a source familiar with the planned meeting said.
On Thursday, a White House official said Trump had met with Stanford University economist John Taylor to discuss the job.
Trump is working from a short list that also includes Jerome Powell, a Fed governor; Kevin Warsh, a former Fed governor; Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn; and Yellen, whose term expires in February, sources have said.
White House chief of staff John Kelly said on Thursday Trump is “some time away” from a decision on who should chair the Federal Reserve.
