President Donald Trump and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who have been at odds over the direction of monetary policy, met Monday to discuss a variety of economic issues.
The two, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, discussed the economy broadly as well as growth, employment trends and inflation, the central bank said.
Powell’s “comments were consistent with his remarks at his congressional hearings last week,” the Fed said.
On Twitter, Trump said the meeting was “good & cordial.”
