Trump Attacks Federal Reserve Again, Wants Interest Rate Cut
The Republican president tweeted Monday “think of what it could have been if the Fed had gotten it right.”
Trump is encouraging the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates, saying “now they stick, like a stubborn child, when we need rates cuts, & easing, to make up for what other countries are doing against us. Blew it!”
The Fed at its last meeting kept its benchmark rate in a range of 2.25% to 2.5% but hinted at future cuts. The rate influences many consumer and business loans.
