Here’s the article:
President Donald Trump and economic advisor Peter Navarro are alone in the White House when it comes to blaming Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for the economic slowdown, administration officials told CNBC.
And now for the chaser. . .
CNBC needs better sources:
Also strange bc I spoke to a senior WH official yesterday who was not named Navarro or Trump and they were blaming Jay Powell and the Fed for just about everything afflicting the world. https://t.co/LcdqJroeuS

We believe the term for what CNBC just did is, “Fake News!”
