Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 07, 2018

President Trump himself appears to be prepping for a slowdown by identifying scapegoats. Chief among them, for the moment, is Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell. Just last week, Trump blamed the independent Fed for the drop in the stock market as well as a recent plant-closing announcement by General Motors. Speaking to the Washington Post, Trump said he was "not even a little bit happy" with Powell, whom he nominated to run the Fed. Trump "is more strategic about setting up the assignment of blame than people give him credit for," said a second Republican close to the White House when asked about the attacks on Powell. Other advisers expect Trump to continue blaming Democrats for recent market weakness, as he and his aides did in the runup to last month's midterm elections.

"He'll blame the Democratic House"

And he'll blame them for things that happened before they were the majority in the house.
