Trump advisor says Fed Chair Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s jobs are safe

President Donald Trump’s economic advisor Kevin Hassett said Wednesday that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s jobs are not under threat.
Hassett told an NBC News reporter at the White House that Powell’s role as the leader of the U.S. central bank is completely safe.
That assurance followed Hassett’s appearance on Fox Business, where the head of Trump’s Council of Economic Advisors said he is highly confident that the president is happy with Mnuchin.
