Every Fed policymaker backed the central bank's September decision to raise the target policy rate to between 2 percent and 2.25 percent, according to minutes of the Sept. 25-26 meeting, published Wednesday.
In minutes from last month's central bank rate-setting meeting, which unanimously agreed a third rise of the year, policymakers said further rate hikes "would most likely be consistent" with current economic indicators. "There's a couple of other people there that I'm not so happy with, too, but for the most part, I'm very happy with people".
But some Fed members warned that instability in emerging economies - many of which are heavily indebted and vulnerable when U.S. rates rise - could "spread more broadly through the global economy and financial markets". That would put it above the 3 percent level which the Fed now pegs as its "neutral rate". Trump says he knows the Fed is independent, but he thinks interest rates are rising too quickly.
The broadly united front could bolster expectations the central bank will raise rates a fourth time this year in December, but the minutes also show the committee remains split on how much further to raise rates next year.More news: Canelo Alvarez signs highest-earning sports contract of all time
U.S. stock markets, which had largely expected a "steady as you go" statement, moved slightly higher but remained loss-making after the update, which stressed a continuation of the Fed's "gradual" approach to rate rise policy.
A few participants expected rates would need to rise enough to modestly restrain economic growth, even as two others "indicated that they would not favor adopting a restrictive policy stance in the absence of clear signs of an overheating economy and rising inflation".
Meanwhile, the Fed took notice of clouds forming on the horizon.
"The continued risk of a fresh bout of weakness (in the yuan) can not be ignored" with U.S. Treasury yields beginning to creep higher again, Trump hinting at further tariffs on Chinese goods and the Chinese stocks hitting a multi-year lows, said Simon Derrick, chief currency strategist at BNY Mellon.More news: Chinese livestreamer held for 'insulting' national anthem
Stronger US currency makes American exports more costly to foreign buyers, possibly weighing on growth, and makes many debt payments more costly for foreign borrowers.
Last week, in a series of comments, Trump called the Fed "out of control", although he said in response to a question that he would not seek to oust Powell as chairman.
The White House has put punishing tariffs on more than $250 billion in annual Chinese imports.
