Trump Asks Who's the Bigger U.S. 'Enemy': Fed's Powell or China's Xi

Source: Bloomberg

President Donald trump blasted the Federal Reserve, suggesting its Chairman could be a greater "enemy" of the U.S. than Chinese President Xi Jinping, and saying he would soon announce some related action from the White House.

"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," Trump said Friday in a tweet, following the release of prepared remarks by Fed Chairman Jerome Powel at the Kansas City Fed's annual symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

1. Can he fire Powell?

I suppose that would appear desperate?

6. ITMF Now! We all know damn well that we'll never see Amendment 25 used against this

certifiably insane nutjob. Are we going to wait until he casts our nation into a deeper recession than 2008, destroys our earth's environment, ignites a civil war and leads us into WWIII? WTF are we waiting for?!

Oh yeah, we need to be careful of our own shadow.

7. I think even more significant than him using Powell's name

is him actually saying in public that China is an "enemy" of the US.
China will not in anyway take kindly to this language. Trade war is one thing, being called an "enemy" by the (false) president of the United States is something completely different.

9. I'm no fan of Powell, but he is a highly respected banker

and this is outrageous calling him an enemy of the US.

10. I like the line:

“Without knowing or asking what I’m doing...”

Tell me, Donald, who knows what you are doing? It doesn’t even seem YOU know what you are doing half the time...
