ECONOMY/FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Fed should lower rates (there is almost no inflation) and loosen, making us competitive with other nations, and manufacturing will SOAR! Dollar is very strong relative to others.”

ECONOMY/FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Manufacturers are being held back by the strong Dollar, which is being propped up by the ridiculous policies of the Federal Reserve – Which has called interest rates and quantitative tightening wrong from the first days of Jay Powell!”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “…..Reserve should likewise act so that countries, of which there are many, no longer take advantage of our strong dollar by further devaluing their currencies. This makes it very hard for our manufactures & farmers to fairly export their goods. Lower Rates & Loosen – Fed!”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “At my meeting with Jay Powell this morning, I protested fact that our Fed Rate is set too high relative to the interest rates of other competitor countries. In fact, our rates should be lower than all others (we are the U.S.). Too strong a Dollar hurting manufacturers & growth!”

CHINA/ECONOMY/FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump on Thursday [10-31-19] said the U.S.’ own central bank poses a bigger threat to the economy than China because it is keeping interest rates at levels that are higher than in other countries…The central bank on Wednesday [10-30-19] cut interest rates for the third time since July, but Powell signaled that it is done reducing borrowing costs for now, until there’s evidence the economy really needs yet another stimulus. That angered Trump, who has loudly called for rates to drop to zero — or even lower — to boost the economy as he heads into his reelection campaign. Trump’s missives on Thursday seemed to answer his own question from a couple of tweets in August. ‘My only question is, who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powell or Chairman Xi?’ he asked back then. (His tweet today downgraded Powell from ‘enemy’ to ‘problem.’)”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “People are VERY disappointed in Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve. The Fed has called it wrong from the beginning, too fast, too slow. They even tightened in the beginning. Others are running circles around them and laughing all the way to the bank. Dollar & Rates are hurting…”

CHINA/FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “….our manufacturers. We should have lower interest rates than Germany, Japan and all others. We are now, by far, the biggest and strongest Country, but the Fed puts us at a competitive disadvantage. China is not our problem, the Federal Reserve is! We will win anyway.”

EU/FEDERAL RESERVE/JAPAN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “‘Over in Europe and Japan they have NEGATIVE RATES. They get paid to borrow money. Don’t we have to follow our competitors?’ @Varneyco Yes we do. The Fed doesn’t have a clue! We have unlimited potential, only held back by the Federal Reserve. But we are winning anyway!”

FEDERAL RESERVE/GERMANY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Federal Reserve is derelict in its duties if it doesn’t lower the Rate and even, ideally, stimulate. Take a look around the World at our competitors. Germany and others are actually GETTING PAID to borrow money. Fed was way too fast to raise, and way too slow to cut!”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRADE WARS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump on Tuesday [10-1-19] lashed out at the Federal Reserve after a widely tracked gauge of U.S. manufacturing showed the sector shrank for the second straight month, coming in at its worst reading since 2009. Manufacturers have been slammed by a sharp drop in new export orders as a result of the tariff wars that Trump has started with the U.S.’s top trading partners, but the president faulted the Fed for not cutting interest rates fast enough…The president has repeatedly argued that Powell, the Fed chair, and the rest of the central bank are ‘clueless’ for keeping interest rates higher than in other countries. Trump is right that the dollar is strong — making American exports more expensive — although that has much more to do with the relative health of the U.S. economy than with anything the central bank does.”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “As I predicted, Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve have allowed the Dollar to get so strong, especially relative to ALL other currencies, that our manufacturers are being negatively affected. Fed Rate too high. They are their own worst enemies, they don’t have a clue. Pathetic!”

The President wants to be competitive with these other countries on this, but I don’t think he’ll fire Jay Powell (even if I should!).’ We should always be paying less interest than others!”

ECONOMY/FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The world has gone topsy-turvy. President Trump invited, and then disinvited, the Taliban to Camp David. Taylor Swift is in a long-term relationship, and Popeyes put its fried chicken on a bun. Now Mr. Trump wants the Federal Reserve to join everyone else in the upside down that is 2019. The president said Fed officials should slash interest rates to zero or below in a tweet on Wednesday [9-11-19]. In doing so, he urged the central bank to adopt a policy that its counterparts, including the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan, have used as an emergency measure to shore up weak economies. Given that the Federal Reserve is presiding over a strong economy, it is unlikely to acquiesce. The Fed is expected to make a modest quarter-point cut at its meeting next week as it tries to guard against growing uncertainties, lowering its policy rate to a range of 1.75 to 2 percent. But it is also unclear whether the Fed could practically and successfully use negative rates to stimulate the economy.”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Federal Reserve should get our interest rates down to ZERO, or less, and we should then start to refinance our debt. INTEREST COST COULD BE BROUGHT WAY DOWN, while at the same time substantially lengthening the term. We have the great currency, power, and balance sheet…..”

FEDERAL RESERVE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “….The USA should always be paying the the lowest rate. No Inflation! It is only the naïveté of Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve that doesn’t allow us to do what other countries are already doing.
