Trump Says It Is 'Incredible' Fed Is Considering Another Rate Increase

‘Paris is burning’: Trump hails US economy while ‘outside world blowing up’

Trump warns Fed not to raise interest rate, urges it to ‘feel the market’

It is "incredible" that with "a very strong dollar" and "virtually no inflation", and with the outside world "blowing up", the Fed is even considering "yet another" interest rate hike, Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

In an interview with Reuters last week, Trump said he needed the flexibility of lower rates to support the broader U.S. economy as he fights a growing trade battle against China, and potentially other countries. The Fed is widely expected to raise interest rates again on Wednesday.

"The Fed continues to see the economy is overheating, as we're operating above normal levels right now - so we'll continue to see rate hikes in 2019 because the economy is overheating at this point", Rick said. Among the factors depressing the market are the Fed's rates hikes.

Trump has said he thinks the Fed is "way off base" by raising rates, but has been powerless to stop it from boosting them. In my opinion, avoiding a rate hike in December will send a negative signal to markets, confirming the views that a recession is about to hit the global economy.

Any clarity the central bank provides Wednesday could come in a policy statement, in updated economic and interest-rate forecasts or in a news conference Powell will hold.

Trump fired off two such tweets this week in the run-up to the Fed meeting.

In a November speech, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell signaled fresh flexibility in how the Fed sets interest rates but didn't say policy makers' economic outlook had changed.

Responding on "America's Newsroom", former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said President Trump "jawboning" the Federal Reserve over interest rates will not help matters. "The Fed's governors might have thought in September that another increase would be needed by year's end, but they should acknowledge that the market beat them to it".
