In the United States should be introduced a negative interest rate, said on Thursday President Donald trump.
«I firmly believe that we have to have negative interest rates», — he told reporters.
Now the U.S. has a zero interest rate, however, according to trump, there are some countries that have negative rates, and the United States should have the same opportunities to borrow money.
The interest rate set by the Federal reserve, which the President has no direct impact. Trump regularly criticizes the fed's Jerome Paula when its decisions are contrary to his vision of the situation, however, when the fed quickly cut rates to 0-0.25% amid a sharp fall in oil prices and pandemics of the coronavirus, he became more favorably to respond to the Powell.
