It took a pandemic to bring President Trump and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell together.

The president revealed Monday that he called the embattled Fed chairman to compliment him on the central bank’s emergency actions to rescue the economy that is struggling against the coronavirus outbreak.

“I am happy with him,” the president told reporters. “I called him today and I said, ‘Jerome, good job.’ I really think he’s caught up and he’s done the right thing.”
