In terms of the Fed's leadership, they said Trump has the opportunity to reappoint Powell when the latter's four-year term ends or choose a new chairman. President Trump and his advisors have also repeatedly alleged that the current interest rates were responsible for the dollar's strength against other currencies, and that this harmed USA exports.
Concerns over an escalating trade war between the US and China have shaken financial markets and increased bets the Fed will follow a quarter-point cut it made last week with further easing in coming months. They must cut rates bigger and faster and stop their ridiculous quantitative tightening now.
Moore noted that the Chinese economy would suffer significantly because of trade tensions, however, "they might take the American economy down with them". Earlier this week, he called China a "currency manipulator".
President Donald Trump has a new excuse to hector the Federal Reserve into lowering interest rates further this year: his turbulent trade war with China. The Fed held rates steady since then, and cut its target interest rate by 25 basis points to a range of 2 percent to 2.25 percent on July 31 this year. "Everyone wants a resolution to this", he said, adding that business investments were falling because of uncertainty.

The Fed lowered rates on July 31 for the first time since 2008 in a move aimed at sustaining the record-long USA economic expansion amid uncertainties stemming from the trade dispute and weakening global growth. "US monetary policy can not reasonably react to the day-to-day give-and-take of trade negotiations", Bullard said in a presentation in Washington on Tuesday.
Powell suggested that the recent rate move was a "mid-cycle adjustment" and "not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts".
"I think the market reaction is to be expected".
"Our problem is not China - We are stronger than ever, money is pouring into the USA while China is losing companies by the thousands to other countries, and their currency is under siege", he tweeted.
"I would have maybe anticipated even more [stock market losses], but ultimately, it's going to go much higher than it ever would have gone, because China was like an anchor on us", the president said.
