March 31, 2020 Tweet - "With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
March 13, 2020 Tweet - "The Federal Reserve must FINALLY lower the Fed Rate to something comparable to their competitor Central Banks. Jay Powell and group are putting us at a decided economic & physiological disadvantage. Should never have been this way. Also, STIMULATE!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
March 10, 2020 Tweet - "Our pathetic, slow moving Federal Reserve, headed by Jay Powell, who raised rates too fast and lowered too late, should get our Fed Rate down to the levels of our competitor nations. They now have as much as a two point advantage, with even bigger currency help. Also, stimulate!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
March 6, 2020 Remarks by President Trump at Signing of the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020 Pres. Donald Trump Washington, DC
March 3, 2020 Tweet - "The Federal Reserve is cutting but must further ease and, most importantly, come into line with other countries/competitors. We are not playing on a level field. Not fair to USA. It is finally time for the Federal Reserve to LEAD. More easing and cutting!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
March 3, 2020 Tweet - "Australia's Central Bank cut interest rates and stated it will most likely further ease in order to make up for China's Coronavirus situation and slowdown. They reduced to 0.5%, a record low. Other countries are doing the same thing, if not more so. Our Federal Reserve has us...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Feb. 17, 2020 Tweet - "Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration. He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Feb. 11, 2020 Tweet - "When Jerome Powell started his testimony today, the Dow was up 125, & heading higher. As he spoke it drifted steadily downward, as usual, and is now at -15. Germany & other countries get paid to borrow money. We are more prime, but Fed Rate is too high, Dollar tough on exports." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Jan. 28, 2020 Tweet - "The Fed should get smart & lower the Rate to make our interest competitive with other Countries which pay much lower even though we are, by far, the high standard. We would then focus on paying off & refinancing debt! There is almost no inflation-this is the time (2 years late)!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Dec. 2, 2019 Tweet - "Brazil and Argentina have been presiding over a massive devaluation of their currencies. which is not good for our farmers. Therefore, effective immediately, I will restore the Tariffs on all Steel & Aluminum that is shipped into the U.S. from those countries. The Federal...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Dec. 2, 2019 Tweet - "Manufacturers are being held back by the strong Dollar, which is being propped up by the ridiculous policies of the Federal Reserve - Which has called interest rates and quantitative tightening wrong from the first days of Jay Powell!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Nov. 25, 2019 Remarks by President Trump in a Signing Ceremony for H.R. 2423, The Women's Suffrage Centennial Commemorative Coin Act Pres. Donald Trump Washington, DC
Nov. 18, 2019 Tweet - "At my meeting with Jay Powell this morning, I protested fact that our Fed Rate is set too high relative to the interest rates of other competitor countries. In fact, our rates should be lower than all others (we are the U.S.). Too strong a Dollar hurting manufacturers & growth!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Nov. 18, 2019 Tweet - "Just finished a very good & cordial meeting at the White House with Jay Powell of the Federal Reserve. Everything was discussed including interest rates, negative interest, low inflation, easing, Dollar strength & its effect on manufacturing, trade with China, E.U. & others, etc." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Nov. 12, 2019 Remarks by President Trump at the Economic Club of New York | New York, NY Pres. Donald Trump New York, NY
Oct. 31, 2019 Tweet - "People are VERY disappointed in Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve. The Fed has called it wrong from the beginning, too fast, too slow. They even tightened in the beginning. Others are running circles around them and laughing all the way to the bank. Dollar & Rates are hurting..." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Oct. 1, 2019 Tweet - "As I predicted, Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve have allowed the Dollar to get so strong, especially relative to ALL other currencies, that our manufacturers are being negatively affected. Fed Rate too high. They are their own worst enemies, they don't have a clue. Pathetic!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Sept. 19, 2019 Remarks by Vice President Pence at the 9th Annual Delivering Alpha Conference | New York, NY Mike Pence New York, NY
Sept. 12, 2019 Tweet - "European Central Bank, acting quickly, Cuts Rates 10 Basis Points. They are trying, and succeeding, in depreciating the Euro against the VERY strong Dollar, hurting U.S. exports.... And the Fed sits, and sits, and sits. They get paid to borrow money, while we are paying interest!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Sept. 11, 2019 Tweet - "The Federal Reserve should get our interest rates down to ZERO, or less, and we should then start to refinance our debt. INTEREST COST COULD BE BROUGHT WAY DOWN, while at the same time substantially lengthening the term. We have the great currency, power, and balance sheet....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Sept. 6, 2019 Tweet - "I agree with @jimcramer, the Fed should lower rates. They were WAY too early to raise, and Way too late to cut - and big dose quantitative tightening didn't exactly help either. Where did I find this guy Jerome? Oh well, you can't win them all!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 30, 2019 Tweet - "If the Fed would cut, we would have one of the biggest Stock Market increases in a long time. Badly run and weak companies are smartly blaming these small Tariffs instead of themselves for bad management...and who can really blame them for doing that? Excuses!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 28, 2019 Tweet - "Our Federal Reserve cannot "mentally" keep up with the competition - other countries.

Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 27, 2019 Tweet - "The Federal Reserve loves watching our manufacturers struggle with their exports to the benefit of other parts of the world. Has anyone looked at what almost all other countries are doing to take advantage of the good old USA? Our Fed has been calling it wrong for too long!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 23, 2019 Tweet - "As usual, the Fed did NOTHING! It is incredible that they can "speak" without knowing or asking what I am doing, which will be announced shortly. We have a very strong dollar and a very weak Fed. I will work "brilliantly" with both, and the U.S. will do great..." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 22, 2019 Tweet - "The Economy is doing really well. The Federal Reserve can easily make it Record Setting! The question is being asked, why are we paying much more in interest than Germany and certain other countries? Be early (for a change), not late. Let America win big, rather than just win!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 22, 2019 Tweet - "Germany sells 30 year bonds offering negative yields. Germany competes with the USA. Our Federal Reserve does not allow us to do what we must do. They put us at a disadvantage against our competition. Strong Dollar, No Inflation! They move like quicksand. Fight or go home!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 21, 2019 Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure Pres. Donald Trump Washington, DC
Aug. 21, 2019 Tweet - "So Germany is paying Zero interest and is actually being paid to borrow money, while the U.S., a far stronger and more important credit, is paying interest and just stopped (I hope!) Quantitative Tightening. Strongest Dollar in History, very tough on exports. No Inflation!....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 21, 2019 Tweet - "Doing great with China and other Trade Deals. The only problem we have is Jay Powell and the Fed. He's like a golfer who can't putt, has no touch. Big U.S. growth if he does the right thing, BIG CUT - but don't count on him! So far he has called it wrong, and only let us down...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 20, 2019 Remarks by President Trump and President Iohannis of Romania Before Bilateral Meeting Pres. Donald Trump Washington, DC
Aug. 19, 2019 Tweet - "Our Economy is very strong, despite the horrendous lack of vision by Jay Powell and the Fed, but the Democrats are trying to "will" the Economy to be bad for purposes of the 2020 Election. Very Selfish! Our dollar is so strong that it is sadly hurting other parts of the world..." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 8, 2019 Tweet - "As your President, one would think that I would be thrilled with our very strong dollar. I am not! The Fed's high interest rate level, in comparison to other countries, is keeping the dollar high, making it more difficult for our great manufacturers like Caterpillar, Boeing,....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 7, 2019 Tweet - ""Three more Central Banks cut rates." Our problem is not China - We are stronger than ever, money is pouring into the U.S. while China is losing companies by the thousands to other countries, and their currency is under siege - Our problem is a Federal Reserve that is too....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
Aug. 5, 2019 Tweet - "China dropped the price of their currency to an almost a historic low. It's called "currency manipulation." Are you listening Federal Reserve? This is a major violation which will greatly weaken China over time!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
July 31, 2019 Tweet - "What the Market wanted to hear from Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve was that this was the beginning of a lengthy and aggressive rate-cutting cycle which would keep pace with China, The European Union and other countries around the world...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
July 29, 2019 Tweet - "The Fed "raised" way too early and way too much. Their quantitative tightening was another big mistake. While our Country is doing very well, the potential wealth creation that was missed, especially when measured against our debt, is staggering. We are competing with other....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
July 29, 2019 Tweet - "The E.U. and China will further lower interest rates and pump money into their systems, making it much easier for their manufacturers to sell product. In the meantime, and with very low inflation, our Fed does nothing - and probably will do very little by comparison. Too bad!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
July 22, 2019 Tweet - "With almost no inflation, our Country is needlessly being forced to pay a MUCH higher interest rate than other countries only because of a very misguided Federal Reserve. In addition, Quantitative Tightening is continuing, making it harder for our Country to compete. As good....." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
July 11, 2019 Tweet - "I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity...." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
June 24, 2019 Tweet - "Despite a Federal Reserve that doesn't know what it is doing - raised rates far too fast (very low inflation, other parts of world slowing, lowering & easing) & did large scale tightening, $50 Billion/month, we are on course to have one of the best Months of June in US history..." Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
June 11, 2019 Tweet - "This is because the Euro and other currencies are devalued against the dollar, putting the U.S. at a big disadvantage. The Fed Interest rate way too high, added to ridiculous quantitative tightening! They don't have a clue!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
March 29, 2019 Tweet - "Had the Fed not mistakenly raised interest rates, especially since there is very little inflation, and had they not done the ridiculously timed quantitative tightening, the 3.0% GDP, & Stock Market, would have both been much higher & World Markets would be in a better place!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
April 16, 2017 Tweet - "Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem? We will see what happens!" Pres. Donald Trump Unknown
