Trump and the FED


The President of the United States of America Donald Trump repeated his objection to the Federal Reserve's monetary system and stated that it is supporting a strong U.S. dollar, perhaps at the cost of the U.S. economy. The Statement occurred during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Trump said, "America is now booming like never before,". "Other countries are doing very poorly. That makes it even harder for us to be successful. Plus, we have a gentleman that likes raising interest rates in the Fed," he said, referring to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
