12:02 am
to announce another aggressive interest rate hike to beat back inflation. he signaled that the central bank would increase rates by another half a percent but cnbc's steve liesman reports fed officials are considering a three-quarter point hike, 75 basis points that would be the biggest increase since 1994. today the billionaire leon cooperman gave a grim warning. in an interview on cnbc's "squawk box" he said america's headed towards recession. >> i think the price of oil or the fed will push us into recession sometime next year it's too much to experience the recession this year but i think we'll have recession sometime in 2023. >> cooperman's comments come as a key inflation report out today shows another big inflation surge. according to the labor department, wholesale prices jump by 10.8% in may year over year that's an all-time high. the data is out days after the
12:03 am
labor department reporting that the consumer price index in may had its biggest jump in 41 years. cnbc's kayla tausche on how the white house is responding but first cnbc's senior economics correspondent steve liesman. steve, you asked a question of chairman powell. >> you talked about using 50 basis point rate hikes or the possibility in coming meetings might there be something larger than 50, 75 percentage point possible >> he said no so explain why they're back on the table now, steve. >> a few reasons, shep pardon me. after powell said a larger rate hike wasn't being actively considered, he did go on to say, well, that was the case if the fed's forecast for the economy panned out including inflation flattening out that didn't happen and there's no sign of it easing there's a sign of higher inflation from the price surge in inflation, war in ukraine china has been under extended
12:04 am
lockdown the factories are coming back online finally wage gauge caused by continuing shortage of labor and one more thing, the fed has a series of measures that it follows about how much inflation americans expect to happen and those are mostly trending up that raises the fear of more inflation down the road as people spend more now to avoid higher prices in the future. >> how's a 3/4 point rate hike going to affect american's spare a half point >> one quarter doesn't matter that much. it's more that the market thinks the extra bit the fed will do means a lot more rate hikes in the months ahead here's one more example. the market thought the fed was going to stop raising rates last summer at around 3 persz percent. now the market expects to reach 4% a whole extra percentage point that means consumer credit rates will be higher here's the context
12:05 am
the fed fund rate has not been 4% in 14 years so the story here is this. whether the fed's aggressive plan to raise rates will plunge the economy into recession and that, of course, shep is going to matter a whole lot to americans. >> i bet it will steve liesman. thanks very much. inflation is sapping the strength of our families that from president biden and union supporters in philadelphia he reassured them that tackling inflation remains a top priority for the administration the president again blamed rising gas prices on the russian invasion of ukraine. >> i'm doing everything in my power to blunt putin's gas price hike just since he invaded ukraine it's gone up $1.74 a gallon because of nothing else but that so i have a plan to bring down the cost of gas and food. >> the president continues to

12:07 am
approach can be a double-edged sword. >> this works when the fed enjoys strong growth and low inflation and this can come back to be a political problem if inflation exists and the fed is unable to fix the problem. >> voters are already war weary. polls show americans wanting the white house to limit economic fallout here at home rather than punish vladimir putin even more. that's a reversal of opinion from earlier in the year today the oil and gas industry wrote the president with ten policies that could bring energy to the market like allowing drilling on federal lands and removing regulations for certain refiners nearly all of the items the white house has previously opposed. shep >> the president is set to travel to saudi arabia for the first time since taking office >> reporter: it's the final stop on a middle east tour the white house just announced it's not only about oil though it's hard to overstate the importance the oil rich kingdom
