It wouldn't be surprising if the Fed cuts rates, policy expert saysPresident Trump continues to blast the Fed and Chairman Powell for not moving fast enough to lower interest rates. This comes as Fed officials get ready to gather at the annual Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium. Nellie Liang, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Vincent Reinhart, chief economist at BNY Mellon, join 'Squawk Box' to discuss.

And Japan and Europe prove it every day. If the economy is strong, why does it need support? Blah blah many people are saying babble babble biggest crowd ever blather blather jews love me blah blah
