"You can't have a sustained rally unless something changes in Washington," Cramer said Thursday. "Unless we resolve Washington, then all these great earnings are for naught."
But Cramer said Trump should "shut up" about Powell because the more the president criticizes, the more likely he would face resistance from the Fed chief in order to maintain the central bank's independence.
