'premature'-Bloomberg TV@ (Adds background)
WASHINGTON, June 12 (Reuters) - U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a television interview on Wednesday the Federal Reserve should reconsider its last rate increase, which he said was premature.
"I think the Fed taking a more cautious attitude on rates and reconsidering, in effect, the last rate increase that they put in, I think that's good. I think they should reconsider. I think it's quite likely that that last increase was, at best, premature," Ross told Bloomberg TV.
After two days of policy-setting meetings this week, Fed officials will soon issue updated rate projections. The Fed has come under pressure in recent months amid President Donald Trump's trade wars and other signs of economic weakness.
Additionally, Trump has repeatedly attacked the central bank, whose political independence is seen as key to the country's economic stability.
