STEPHEN MOORE WITHDRAWS AS, US TRUMP'S FEDERAL RESERVE PICK AFTER UPROAR OVER WRITINGS ABOUT WOMEN




Economics writer Stephen Moore, withdrew his name from consideration for a seat on the powerful Federal Reserve board, the second pick for the central bank to pull out in a month, President Donald Trump said Thursday.

"I’ve asked Steve to work with me toward future economic growth in our Country," Trump tweeted.

In his withdrawal letter, Moore said that while he was "honored and grateful" Trump had asked him to serve on the Fed board, "the unrelenting attacks on my character have become untenable for me and my family, and three more months of this would be too hard on us."

Moore's decision, which followed an uproar over his writings on women and other issues, came just a little more than a week after another Trump pick, former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, pulled his name from consideration for a Fed seat because of GOP opposition in the Senate.
