Janet Yellen Had Breakfast With Ivanka Trump On July 17, Fed Schedule Reveals

Fed Chair Janet Yellen had a breakfast meeting with Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, on Monday, July 17 from 8am to 9am, at the U.S. central bank, according to Fed public schedules, posted earlier this month on the Fed website. Bloomberg first reported the encounter.

Eight days after the one-hour meeting in a private dining room at the Fed, on July 25 Trump told the Wall Street Journal that Yellen was “in the running, absolutely,” for a second term as chair. “I like her; I like her demeanor. I think she’s done a good job,” he said. “I’d like to see rates stay low. She’s historically been a low-interest-rate person" the president added about the Fed chairman.



The Fed chair often meets with administration officials and members of Congress. But as the LA Times notes, a sit-down with a member of the First Family is highly unusual for the chief of the nation's independent central bank.

The breakfast came as Yellen's four-year term is set to expire in February. She has not said publicly if she is interested in a second term but Trump has said he is considering renominating her.

Ivanka Trump is an unpaid assistant to the president and a key advisor. She has advocated for women's issues, such as paid family leave and an expanded child tax credit. On June 5, Ivanka Trump tweeted an excerpt of a speech Yellen gave a month earlier at Brown University in which she said: “Too many women struggle to combine aspirations for work and family.” Ivanka Trump’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Ivanka Trump and Yellen had breakfast in a room in the Fed's beaux arts Marriner S. Eccles Building, where Yellen frequently dines with guests. In July, Yellen also had breakfast there twice with Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. She also had lunch there in July with Gary Cohn, the White House's top economic advisor and a possible rival for the Fed chairmanship.

A Fed spokeswoman declined to comment Monday on what was discussed at the breakfast or who requested it. A White House spokesman also did not provide details.

As of today, according to the PredictIt online market, Yellen is back on top in the ranking of who the "market" sees as most likely Fed Chair on February 4, in other words, Yellen is expected to remain in her position.

Welcome to the Machine. Toast, no butter and coffee for Ivanka. A stack of pancakes, half dozen eggs, a pound of bacon, and a dozen donuts for The Pillsbury Dough Girl.

Bes, you can sit over there at the other table with Lena Dunham and Meryl Streep. Sometimes it's best not to discuss politics with a girl. Just enjoy and smile. I've learned in undergrad to smile alot, say I want to save the dolphins and seek world peace and hope to adopt a Malawi baby some day.You'll get more then second base that way.

But you did vote for the representative who, by omission, "voted" for the current confirmation process which explicitly allows it.

Or do you only care when certain last names are in play? Nothing wrong with not being objective, just don't pretend you are.

And I don't care for the guy any more than you do, that's not the point.

Honestly if you are so into plastic women I recommend picking one up at the toy store.....it's cheaper (or has no one seen her photos before the nose/boob jobs?). She's a spoiled little daddy's girl who gets whatever she wants and her (((husband))) knows this and uses it. She is Trump's Achilles heel and the biggest threat to his presidency (no, I am not kidding). Her objective is to make Israel great again and bleed America out while doing it. She is also a SJW nut job who believes in the global warming myth and other silly things like the wage gap. Also to those horny guys out there who think she's so great I hope your Jewish because that is all she ever dated. She has sucked more Jewish dick than a rabbi. She really wanted to marry the Rothschild that was banging her, but she was goyim so he said no.
