Trump criticizes US dollar's strength, blames the Fed

The public pressure on the Federal Reserve by a US president has been unprecedented as the institution has traditionally been viewed as independent

President Trump pointed to ardour rate cuts by three foreign central banks Wednesday as proof that the Federal Reserve's monetary coverage, no longer his trade war with China, is the explanation for "our insist".

"They must Cut Rates bigger and faster, and stop their ridiculous quantitative tightening NOW", the president recommended, pointing to a wide yield curve, which is considered one of the important indicators of a market's recession.

His comments came after central banks in India, New Zealand and Thailand all announced higher-than-expected cuts to ardour charges, adding to a worldwide trend of easing monetary coverage. Together the four chairs served 40 years at the position of Fed chair and were appointed and reappointed by both Democratic and Republican presidents.

On July 31, the Fed cut its target interest rate by 25 basis points to 2.00-2.25%, citing implications of global developments for the USA economic outlook and muted inflation pressures. The Fed said the rate cut is in light of the implications of the global economic outlook and muted inflation pressure.

While the Fed has yet to move at the pace Trump wants, his recent moves against China may force their hand.

As Trump hammers the Fed, four former leaders of the central bank spoke out in favor of its continued independence. "That can lead to unstable financial markets and worse economic outcomes", the former Fed leaders wrote. "We hope that when that decision is made, the choice will be based on the prospective nominee's competence and integrity, not on political allegiance or activism", they said.

The White House has aggressively lobbied for more substantive cuts in interest rates as a way to encourage borrowing and investment to stimulate economic growth. Investors are now assuming another rate cut next month, followed by two more in the coming months.

Goldman Sachs warned on Monday that a trade deal with China may not be completed until after the 2020 election.

In December, Bloomberg News reported that Trump had privately discussed firing Powell. "And coming into question is the broader fundamental strength of economies around the world". According to Trump, the interest rate level held high by the Fed keeps the Dollar high compared to other countries.
