Even some of Trump's Republican opponents from the 2016 presidential primaries jumped on Twitter to try to point to difference conclusions.

White House Economic Adviser Gary Cohn is remaining in his post, a White House official said on Thursday, after speculation earlier in the day of Cohn's possible departure rattled the USA stock market and the dollar.

On Wednesday, Trump disbanded two business councils, with several chief executives quitting in protest over his remarks on white nationalists.

"The dollar, for the most part, remains in a state of directionless confusion, supported on the one hand by resurgent USA economic data yet burdened by the expanding White House rat's nest".

On Thursday, a quickly deleted tweet, later refuted by several journalists and White House sources, suggested that Cohn had made a decision to resign his position.

The dollar posted its third session of losses against the yen, falling 0.15% to ¥109.40 and shrinking this week's gains to 0.4%. That pared the dollar's early gains against most major currencies and sent the dollar index, which tracks the USA currency against six rivals, to near its lows on the day. The index dropped 1.4 per cent last Thursday, as concern over a possible conflict between the United States and North Korea hit the market.

Minutes from the Federal Reserve's latest meeting showed policymakers were growing more cautious about recent weak inflation, with some calling for a pause in interest rate hikes.

The US dollar fell 0.55 per cent against the yen to 109.60 yen and 0.4 per cent against the Swiss franc.

U.S. crude fell 0.15% to $47.02 on Friday, surrendering some of Thursday's 0.7% gain, heading for a 3.7% weekly loss.

A safe-haven commodity, spot gold added 0.4 percent to $1,287.45 an ounce.

Base metals fell as some investors locked in profits from a steep rally amid doubts about future demand in top metals consumer China.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange was down 0.5% to $6,457 a tonne, extending Thursday's 0.6% drop.

Treasury prices rose, with the benchmark 10-year yield settling 3 bps lower at 2.20% after trading as high as 2.25%.
