Powell Meets With Trump, a Frequent Critic, to Discuss Economy

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell met with President Trump, who has criticized the central bank dozens of times this year, at the White House on Monday to discuss an economy hindered by faltering global growth prospects.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly stated a low opinion of the job Mr. Powell is doing, calling him a “terrible communicator” and an enemy of the state. The president said in a statement on Twitter that the Monday meeting was “very good and cordial.”
