Bush has 'total confidence' in Bernanke

President George W. Bush has "total confidence" in Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke, a top White House adviser said in an interview on Thursday 25 May.

"Inflation is a concern to all of us," White House economic adviser Allan Hubbard said in an interview with CNBC.

"But we're very, very confident, the president is very, very confident in Ben Bernanke and the members of the Federal Reserve Board. They have made it very clear they are going to be very hawkish in keeping inflation under control.
