•, ZeroHedge

After the Fed cut rates to zero, launched unlimited QE, is on pace to buy $1 trillion in Treasurys and MBS in 2 weeks, backstopped pretty much every asset class and announced it would purchase bonds, loans, commercial MBS,munis as well as the LQD ETF, Trump is finally very happy with Fed Chair Jerome Powell, ironically on the same day Powell signed the dollar's death warrant.

Here's what Trump said on Powell.

"I am happy with him. I really think he's caught up and he's done the right thing. And I think ultimately we will be rewarded because of the decision he made over the last — he's really stepped up over the last week."

"I called him today and I said 'Jerome, good job."

"He was a little bit slower than what I'd have liked, in the sense of what he was doing."

"But today I called up Jerome Powell and I said 'Jerome you've done a really good job.' I was proud of him. It took courage. Ultimately you're going to see the fruits — he's not finished. He's got other arrows in the quiver."

"I'm very happy with the job he did."
