"Every time we do something great, he raises the interest rates.he nearly looks like he's happy raising interest rates", Trump was reported as telling the Wall Street Journal.
"It's a Fed inversion", said Ian Lyngen, head of US rate strategy at BMO. Furthermore, it may be just as likely that if the economy does slow, it will be because of the trade war rather than interest rates. "I think the fed has gone insane".
"If strong growth and robust employment gains were to continue into 2019 and be accompanied by a material rise in actual and expected inflation", he said, "that circumstance would indicate to me that additional policy normalization might well be required beyond what I now expect".
President Trump discusses the midterm elections, the Fed's interest rate hikes and why US economic growth will help bring people together.
When Federal Reserve was asked about this, the bank informed that the USA economy is strong enough to deal with this kind of fluctuations.
"Based on my reading of the accumulating evidence, I believe that trend growth in the economy may well be faster and the structural rate of unemployment lower than I would have thought several years ago", he said during a speech in Washington, D.C.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 400 points, or 1.6 percent, while the S&P 500 gained 1.9 percent, and the Nasdaq surged 3.0 percent.

"Changes in financial conditions are something that is relevant for the economic outlook", and need to be accounted for "if they are sustained", he said. His criticism could mount if the recent sell-off in stocks continues.
He conceded, though, that inflationary pressures seem low now, even with a tightening labor market and rising wages.
While growth is strong and may well have shifted into a higher permanent gear, particularly after data showing higher than previously estimated household savings available to support future spending, Clarida said it also may be the case that productivity is rising and that unemployment can fall lower than expected without producing inflation.
Mr Trump said the Fed poses the biggest risk to the United States economy, adding that higher interest rates would slow growth and add to the national debt. He said there's no clear sign of inflation accelerating above 2 percent.
Trump has nominated three other candidates to fill the remaining open spots on the Fed's board of governors.
It is unclear whether the president would have the authority to remove Powell.
