US President Donald Trump has escalated his war of words against America's central bank, calling the Federal Reserve his "biggest threat". The remarks, made in an interview with US media outlet Fox Business, follow the president's repeated criticism of the Fed for its decision to raise interest rates.

Well this article sheds some light on why Trumplethinskin will give bin Salman a pass after threatening to spank him if he had any part in killing Khashoggi . The orange whore needs some money to cover his stupid policy.

Hey libertaricl°wns this is why its a bad idea to put a businessman in charge of the country.

The Federal Reserve actually has been an issue with a few presidents.

Taking them on and/or attempting to remove the central bank has horrible consequences

This war is bigger than any other - the banks are a nation on their own.

It must be costing him personally somehow, since we all know that's the only thing he cares about.

If only there were some political/societal norm whereby presidents laid bare their sources of income so we could confirm they are not making national decisions based on their own personal inurement.

#4 - "If only there were some political/societal norm whereby presidents laid bare their sources of income so we could confirm they are not making national decisions based on their own personal inurement." There was but Trump simply ignored the norm.

Unless Trump gains his inurement via his Trump Foundation, no fault , no foul; otherwise it's bribery or coertion. A real crime.

The whole point of independent central banks is to manage the money supply to moderate inflation (some claim to care about unemployment) so that politicians don't print money to the point that hyper-inflation ala Venezuela happens.

The Fed and Obama helped the US recover from 2008 better than any OECD economy. The ECB was too hawkish.
Time will tell if the Fed is able to manage inflation in the US.
That is made difficult by Trump's massive deficit spending during a full employment economy.
The deficit must come down or the Fed will raise interest rates, which will also curtail trade and slow the economy.

"The Federal Reserve actually has been an issue with a few presidents."

So?
And will bet a million dollars (that I, like Trump, obviously won't pay) that Humpy cannot name a single one who did or why.
