Despite being the most powerful man in the world, President Trump isn’t the one who gets to decide on the interest rate policy for our country.
The Federal Reserve, led by Chairman Jerome Powell, actually decides what the interest rates will be.
This hasn’t pleased Trump, who feels higher interest rates are cooling the economy and undermining the historic tax legislation he helped pass.
Does this make sense? Should the leader of our country, who has spearheaded important legislation to boost our economy, be able to determine what is best for our nation?
Or should the Federal Reserve, an independent agency, have final say?
