In an interview in The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Trump said ahead of next month's midterm congressional elections that the Fed posed the "biggest risk because I think interest rates are being raised too quickly".
Mr Trump told the Journal it was "too early to say, but maybe" he regretted nominating Powell for the four-year term he started in February.

Markets have long seen the independence of the central bank as a critical ingredient in stability, and Powell has vowed to uphold it. Three of those increases were under Powell, a sitting Fed governor widely respected on Wall Street whom Trump chose to succeed Obama's pick, Janet Yellen. Yesterday, Atlanta Fed President Bostic said that the institution was comfortable with a fourth rate hike in light of strong economic data.
"Mr Trump also recently said the Fed had "gone crazy" and was öut of control". "They're going to keep keep raising rates", said John Briggs, head of strategy at NatWest Markets.
