New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said Friday rate cuts are not a topic of discussion at the moment for the central bank.

"We aren't really talking about rate cuts right now," he said on CNBC's "Squawk Box." "We're very focused on the question in front of us, which as chair Powell said… is, have we gotten monetary policy to sufficiently restrictive stance in order to ensure the inflation comes back down to 2%? That's the question in front of us."
