President Donald Trump was "rattled" by General Motors' plan to slash production at several American plants, and he's beginning to notice there are "cracks" in the economy, CNBC's Jim Cramer argued Wednesday.
Trump is starting to realize "holy cow" the booming U.S. growth "could go away," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street, " a day after the Washington Post published a wide-ranging interview with the president.
Powell said early last month that the cost of borrowing money was a long way from so-called neutral, sparking concerns about a more aggressive Fed tightening. In turn, the in October saw its the worst month since September 2011. The market volatility has since spilled over into November.
Stocks opened higher Wednesday as Wall Street awaited Powell's speech at The Economic Club of New York, around noon ET.
Cramer has repeatedly blamed Powell for spooking the markets. The "Mad Money " host has said central bankers need to recognize that the economy is slowing and they can't move rates to a preconceived notion of neutral.
Last week, Cramer warned that investors should sell their stocks if they think the Fed, as expected, will raise rates in December. The Fed already increased rates three times this year.
After its most recent hike, in September, the Fed projected three rate increases in 2019.
