Trump escalates his war with the Fed

Powell Trump Federal Reserve

A Reuters report on Friday that the Bank of Japan was in unusually active discussions to modify its massive easing also played a role in the tick-up in yields globally. In its latest report, issued in April, it said China's currency had "generally moved against the dollar in a direction that should, all else equal, help reduce China's trade surplus with the United States" a year ago. Tightening now hurts all that we have done.

The president told CNBC that he is ready to place a tariff on every single Chinese good entering the the latest salvo in what could quickly turn into an unprecedented trade war. "In fact, an argument can be made that the President's comments may skew the Committee in a hawkish direction: if a decision is a close call then the appearance of kowtowing to the President may bias them toward raising rates".

Auto tariffs would escalate global trade tension dramatically: The U.S. last year imported $192 billion in vehicles and $143 billion in auto parts - figures that dwarf last year's $29 billion in steel and $23 billion in aluminum imports.

The Fed has raised the benchmark lending rate twice this year after three increases in 2017 and two more rate hikes are expected this year as the central bank removes stimulus from the economy to keep a lid on inflation. In a 1990 Playboy interview, Trump was asked about his first action if he ever became president.

The president also praised Fed Chairman Jerome Powell as "a very good man".

Trump said on Twitter.

"I'm not doing this for politics, I'm doing this to do the right thing for our country", the president said.

"But I don't like all of this work that goes into doing what we're doing, ' he vented".

"Trade tensions are likely to remain in the headlines as Juncker meets President Trump in Washington to discuss potential US tariffs on European autos", asset manager Insight Investment, which is owned by BNY Mellon, said in a note.

Doing so slows growth, as it raises the cost of borrowing, but can also prevent the economy from overheating and tipping into recession.

China accused American officials of making false accusations Thursday as it fired back against a claim President Xi Jinping is blocking talks with the U.S. Earlier, White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow said Xi has no intention of making a deal over trade with the Trump administration.

'I'm not happy about it. "But at the same time I'm letting them do what they feel is best".

The CNBC interview will air in its entirety Friday but the network released excerpts Thursday.

"His comments on the Fed hikes and Trade concerns were the key issue into the weekend's G-20 finance ministers' summit".

Economists say state intervention in the affairs of central banks can have disastrous consequences, leading to hyper-inflation and devalued currencies.

Powell has said he believes the economy is strong enough for the Fed to continue normalizing rates, which were held at a historically low level during the recovery. "I couldn't care less what they say, because my views haven't changed".
