Trump has said he likes her cautious approach to raising interest rates, but declaring her opposition to rolling back new banking rules could put a wide chasm between her and the White House.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the U.S. economy is healthy enough to absorb gradual rate increases and the slow wind down of the Fed's bond portfolio, during an appearance at the Captiol on July 12.
Yellen’s speech comes just hours after the Financial Times published an interview with Gary Cohn, Trump’s top economic adviser, in which he openly criticized the way Trump handled violence carried out by neo Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville.
Banks and Financial Companies were chasing profits by making loans to people who lacked the ability to repay, at times falsifying documents and betting on the false premise that the housing market would continue to soar.
