Trump gripes about Fed in rare rebuke by sitting president

Donald Trump

President Donald Trump trashed the Federal Reserve on Thursday for raising interest rates — moves that he said could damage America’s ongoing economic recovery from the Great Recession.

“I’m not thrilled. Because we go up and every time you go up, they want to raise rates again. I don’t really — I am not happy about it. But at the same time, I’m letting them do what they feel is best,” Trump told CNBC in a rare rebuke of the Fed by a sitting president.
