If Donald Trump were to take the White House on Tuesday, there’s one person who already knows they won’t have a job much longer: Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.
The Republican candidate and former reality show host has said he will “fire” Ms. Yellen the first chance he gets. He’s accused the U.S. central bank of acting politically – of being in league with President Barack Obama and helping him artificially prop up the world’s largest economy.
Mr. Trump’s personal, frontal assault on the head of an independent central bank was one of the many unprecedented moments in this unusual election campaign. And yet, it’s one of the few issues where Mr. Trump’s Republicans might actually get some understanding from Germany.
