Trump Likely To Tap Herman Cain For Federal Reserve

Axios reports:

President Trump has told confidants he wants Herman Cain on the Federal Reserve board, but will wait until his background check is completed before making the formal announcement, according to two senior administration officials familiar with the decision.

It’s likely confirmation that Trump is ready to move ahead with the former presidential candidate, whose possible nomination was reported by Bloomberg in January. “He won’t formally announce until the vet is completed…But he likes Cain and wants to put him on there,” said a senior official who has discussed the matter with the president.
