Trump blasts ECB chief’s new stimulus signals
Trump has repeatedly criticised ‘currency manipulation’ by other countries with which the US has large trade deficits
Washington — US President Donald Trump criticised European Central Bank president Mario Draghi’s comments earlier on Tuesday that further monetary policy changes may be needed by the ECB, saying that would spark unfair European competition against the US.
“Mario Draghi just announced more stimulus could come, which immediately dropped the euro against the dollar, making it unfairly easier for them to compete against the USA. They have been getting away with this for years, along with China and others,” Trump said on Twitter.
