Stephen Moore referred to Cleveland and Cincinnati as the “armpits of America”.

Stephen Moore, who is expected to be Trump’s nominee to the Federal Reserve, has called two midwestern cities the “armpits of America.”

He begins by calling Chicago a “world class city.” He continued, “if you live in the midwest, where else do you want to live besides Chicago?”

Moore then says, “You don’t want to live in Cincinnati or Cleveland or these armpits of America- you want to live in Chicago!”

Trump has often said he cares about “the forgotten Americans,” but his Federal Reserve nominee does not seem to feel the same.
