President Donald Trump said Thursday he hopes the Federal Reserve "won't be raising interest rates anymore." It was Trump's latest criticism of the central bank's policy, which came in a Fox News interview shortly ahead of the next Fed meeting.

The Fed also is expected to cut its forecast of 2019 rate increases.
