With rates currently at 2% to 2.25%, President Trump has been pushing for a drastic cut, but the FOMC is expected to cut just 25 basis points, its second cut in as many months, to try to cushion the U.S. economy from a slowdown resulting from the trade war with China and weak growth abroad.

Chairman Jerome Powell said in recent weeks he sees no signs of a recession on the immediate horizon and the Fed would proceed cautiously and in the bests interests of the economy, refusing to buckle to political pressure. Trump has said the Fed governors are a bunch of “boneheads” and demanded interest rates be cut to zero or less.
