President Donald Trump said he is "not thrilled" about the Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes, breaking with the longstanding precedent of American presidents not commenting on central bank policy out of respect for its independence from political influence. "Because we go up and every time you go up they want to raise rates again".
He added, "No one in the administration has said anything to me that really gives me concern on this front".
Even though he's frustrated, Trump said he's "letting them do what they feel is best".

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has raised rates twice this year, with two more increases projected to come, saying he believes the economy is strong enough for the Fed to continue on its recent path. In the interview, Trump called Powell a "very good man". "We do our work in a strictly nonpolitical way, based on detailed analysis, which we put on the record transparently".
