Trump Talks Up Economy Amid Recession Fears

Donald Trump's top economics adviser Larry Kudlow has fuelled new hopes that China and the US will resume trade talks sparking a rally on equity markets Trump plays down fears of US recession

"I did a tax cut".

The talks are still in their early stages, and the officials have not decided whether to formally push Congress to approve the cut, these people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to disclose internal discussions.

Stock markets around the world shuddered as the White House announced 10 per cent tariffs on an additional US$300 billion (NZ$368b) of Chinese imports, the Chinese currency dipped below the seven-yuan-to-US$1 level for the first time in 11 years and the Trump administration formally labelled China a currency manipulator.

A White House official denied to CNN on Monday that the move was under consideration "at this time".

US stock markets tanked last week on recession fears with all three major USA indexes closing down about 3 percent on Wednesday, paring their losses by Friday due to expectations the European Central Bank might cut rates.

But the president appears to have an idea just whom he will tell voters to blame if the economy does sputter before Election Day. They're actually saving also while they're spending. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow has sought to convey optimism, but Trump has been less consistent.

In two tweets, Trump kept up his pressure on the politically independent Fed and its chairman Jerome Powell, whom he chose to lead the Fed, asserting the United States economy was strong "despite the horrendous lack of vision by Jay Powell and the Fed". "Very Selfish!" Trump tweeted Monday.

"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", he tweeted.

Peter Navarro, a top White House trade adviser, told CBS Sunday that the Fed has raised interest rates "too far, too fast, and, "They have cost us a full point" of growth in Gross Domestic Product".

Fed officials have said they do not make decisions based on political pressure, but Trump has taken his attacks on the central bank to new extremes, particularly this month amid numerous signs that the US economy is weakening more than expected. They are spending at a rapid pace.

"Of the 98 percent of respondents who believe a recession will come after 2019, the panel is split regarding whether the downturn will hit in 2020 or 2021", NABE President Constance Hunter, chief economist at KPMG, said in a statement. I don't think we're having a recession.
