Senate blocks confirmation of Trump’s Federal Reserve pick Judy Shelton

The Senate blocked the nomination of Judy Shelton, President Donald Trump’s pick for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Shelton’s nomination failed by a vote of 47 to 50, with two Republicans joining Democrats to stall her nomination to the central bank as the end of the president’s term nears. Shelton, an informal Trump advisor, once equated the Fed to the Soviet Union’s economic planning.

"In addition to opposition from Senate Democrats, Shelton's nomination was criticized by several economists and former members of the Fed board. She has previously expressed support for reinstating the gold standard and indicated in past writings that she believes the historically independent Fed should become more political." Ah yes, the terrifying gold standard.
