Former IMF chief Lagarde takes swipe at Trump's Twitter habits



By AFP 7 hours ago

Former IMF chief Christine Lagarde said President Donald Trump's trade offensive against China could slash global economic growth and she critiqued his Twitter habits in an interview with US television program 60 Minutes.

Lagarde, who takes over leadership of the European Central Bank on November 1, called for world leaders to act like grownups and negotiate a solution to the trade conflicts, and called for "rational decisions."

Newly freed from the restraints of her previous post, where she would have had to guard her language, Lagarde said, "market stability should not be the subject of a tweet here, a tweet there."

"It requires consideration, thinking, quiet and measured and rational decisions," she said of Trump in the interview due to air Sunday night.

4. I'm guessing you're referring to that picture of Ivanka trying to play with the grown-ups. I don't

like the stereotype of the "dumb blonde" but I can't help Ivanka's image immediately popping into my head.

5. I've been rooting for Christine Lagarde

ever since she gave the "Death Stare" to Ivanka at the G20 meeting.
