Trump slams Fed over interest rates

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday repeated his call for the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates, saying that such a step would further boost the economy.

In comments made to reporters outside the White House, Trump also touted the country's low unemployment rate of 3.7% and the 224,000 jobs added last month, in figures released by the Labor Department on Friday.

Trump has repeatedly railed against the central bank for hiking interest rates and against the Fed's chairman, Jerome Powell, whom Trump nominated, in particular.

Fed officials, in turn, have argued that last year's rate hikes were a proper precaution against inflation or financial sector bubbles.

But Fed officials' sentiment began shifting in May, amid concerns that Trump's trade policy was beginning to undermine economic sentiment, business investment and growth.

Fed officials are poised to cut rates by as much as half a percentage point by the end of the year.
