Title: Herman Cain withdraws from consideration for Fed seat, Trump says

April 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that businessman and former presidential candidate Herman Cain withdrew from consideration for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board.

Four Republican U.S. senators voiced opposition to Trump's expected nomination of Cain in recent weeks, likely enough to deny Cain the support he needed to secure Senate confirmation for the post.

Economists and critics have expressed concerns about loyalists of Trump serving on the traditionally nonpartisan central bank.

Cain would have needed near-unanimous Republican backing in the Senate for confirmation. But four Republicans have said they would not vote for the nominee, effectively killing his chances since Republicans hold 53 seats in the Senate and no Democrats were expected to support him.

I may not agree with some things, said by Herman Cain. But, I was pulling for him.
