WASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump again criticized the Federal Reserve on Monday for not cutting interest rates, keeping up his pressure on the central bank to change its policies.
"Despite a Federal Reserve that doesnt know what it is doing - raised rates far to fast (very low inflation, other parts of world slowing, lowering & easing) & did large scale tightening, $50 Billion/month, we are on course to have one of the best Months of June in U.S. history," he wrote on Twitter.
"Think of what it could have been if the Fed had gotten it right. Thousands of points higher on the Dow, and GDP in the 4s or even 5s. Now they stick, like a stubborn child, when we need rates cuts, & easing, to make up for what other countries are doing against us. Blew it!"
The U.S. president has repeatedly accused the Federal Reserve led by Chairman Jerome Powell of undermining his administrations efforts to boost economic growth and has repeatedly demanded that rates be cut.
The U.S. Federal Reserve last Wednesday signaled interest rate cuts beginning as early as July, saying it is ready to battle growing global and domestic economic risks as it took stock of rising trade tensions and growing concerns about weak inflation.
