Trump Fed pick says he would win Senate backing if debate were over policy

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s pick for a Federal Reserve Board seat, economic commentator Stephen Moore, said on Thursday he would win the Senate’s needed backing for the post if the debate over his prospective nomination were about policy, Bloomberg Television reported.

Moore also said he did not see a case right now for a full percentage point rate cut by the U.S. central bank, an idea that Trump had raised on Tuesday, Bloomberg TV reported, citing an interview with Moore.
