"When you criticize the faith, you proclaim independence," Fischer said. "And when you proclaim independence, it must show its independence."
Trump, people chosen by President of the Fed by Jeremy Powell, once again this year has been in favor of Powell and the central bank, "my greatest threat".
The Lehendakari argues that the interest rate has risen to reduce the stock market, and some investors are equally disturbed.
Fischer said that if Trump continues to attack, the head of the central bank should find a way out by the president's "shake".
