Nick Timiaros and Kate Davidson's WSJ artilcle, "Stephen Moore Says Fed’s Pivot Validates Criticism of Interest-Rate Increases" reads:

Mr. Moore’s impending nomination shows “the attacks on the Fed and Powell won’t stop no matter what the Fed does,” Ian Katz, a financial policy analyst at Capital Alpha Partners, said in a note to clients on Sunday. “It was never plausible that the pause in interest rate hikes would silence [Trump’s] criticism of the Fed.”
