President Trump to nominate Shelton, Waller for Fed board
In a formal restatement of the intention to nominate that was originally made six months ago on Twitter, US President Donald Trump is to nominate Judy Shelton, Waller for Fed board. The nominations haven't been sent to the Senate but presumably will be sent soon. Shelton would fill a term expiring in four years. Waller's would expire in 10 years.
"I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Judy Shelton, Ph. D., U.S. Executive Dir, European Bank of Reconstruction & Development to be on the board of the Federal Reserve..."
– Trump tweeted.
