"Trump's inability to predict and the ongoing US-China trade conflict has had a negative impact on global economic growth," she said, noting that "uncertainty is not conducive to economic development."
"Trump has a lot of keys that will raise suspicions, suspicions and risks," Lagarde said, calling on all politicians involved in the economic conflict to "sit like big guys." . As she put it.
“International trade, connections, the movement of people and capital have lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty. The answer is if my neighbors across the border are desperate, starving and fighting, there will be consequences at home at home. “That's what everyone should understand.”
"What can walls do to epidemics and terrorism, and what can they do about climate change and environmental destruction," Lagarde warned, "building walls is not the answer to the global questions and issues that bind us, whether we like it or not." Finished / 25 z
