WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican Senator Joni Ernst on Tuesday said she was “very unlikely” to back fellow Republican President Donald Trump’s pick for a seat on the U.S. central bank, according to a CNN reporter on Twitter.

“Very unlikely that I would support that person,” Ernst told CNN, adding that she told the White House about her position.
