Trump Says Federal Reserve Manipulating Economy
Politico – Donald Trump is trying to convince Americans that much of what they hear about the state of the economy — from the unemployment rate to the soaring stock market — is a politically manipulated lie.
The GOP nominee’s latest attempt came Monday morning as he suggested on CNBC that Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was holding interest rates artificially low to aid Democrats. “She’s keeping them artificially low to get Obama retired,” Trump said. “It is a very serious problem and I think it is very political. I think she is very political and to a certain extent, I think she should be ashamed of herself.”
