Jeffrey Gundlach, the money manager who predicted the presidential election of Donald Trump when few saw it coming, has a new surprise call: Neel Kashkari will be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Gundlach, speaking Tuesday at a Vanity Fair summit in Los Angeles, said Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, is a strong advocate of easy money.

Kashkari wrote in an essay on the bank’s website Monday that the Fed shouldn’t raise interest rates again until inflation hits 2 percent or there’s a large drop in unemployment.

“There’s no chance the president wants” Janet Yellen to continue as Fed chair, Gundlach said. Nor will Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, get the nod, according to the fund manager. Gundlach, the head of DoubleLine Capital, cited Cohn’s recent role as president of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. as a reason.
