Trump blasts Fed in latest salvo over rate hikes

March 29, 2019

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Friday that the U.S. Federal Reserve had made a mistake in raising interest rates and blamed the central bank for hurting the U.S. economy and stock markets.

“Had the Fed not mistakenly raised interest rates, especially since there is very little inflation, and had they not done the ridiculously timed quantitative tightening, the 3.0 percent GDP, & Stock Market, would have both been much higher & World Markets would be in a better place!,” Trump tweeted.
