Trump Is a ‘Clear Threat’ To Europe Says ECB Chief Christine Lagarde

Niamh Harris

The head of the European Central Bank raised concerns about a fresh trade war if Donald Trump is re-elected US president.

According to ECP president Christine Lagarde Donald Trump’s potential election is “clearly a threat” to Europe judging by the policies he pursued during his first term in office.

RT reports: Lagarde’s comments, which were delivered in an interview with France 2 on Thursday, come amid growing anxiety among EU leaders over a potential Trump victory in November’s election.

“If we draw lessons from history, by which I mean to say how he [Trump] carried out the first four years of his mandate, it is clearly a threat,” Lagarde stated.

“It is enough to look at trade tariffs, the commitment to NATO, the fight against climate change,” she added, noting that “in these three areas alone, in the past, US interests were not aligned with those of Europe.”

Lagarde, who has headed the ECB since November 2019, had been critical of Trump before, particularly over trade tariffs. However, her latest comments are unusually strident for the head of a central bank, a role that typically precludes involvement in politics.

Meanwhile, as the 2024 race moves into high gear, current US President Joe Biden faces lagging approval ratings. He finished last year with a job approval rating of just 39%, the lowest for any of the last seven presidents at the same point in their first term, according to Gallup. By comparison, Trump ended his single term in office with 45% approval, while former President Barack Obama had a slightly lower 43% rating.

    Well why would they be?
    Europe has sucked the world dry of money, armaments, engineering, climate science, global warming and more and still wants more.
    Eurpoe conquered the world to the detriment of many countries and still continues with that mindset.
    Europe can’t survive without Nato and who funds Nato and the UN.
    Trump should bowl the lot to the bin.
    Kick the UN out so it can set up in Nairobi or some such other god-forsaken outpost.

  2. Lagarde should clean up “her house” before she criticises others. The EU Central Bank is not in great shape, the last time I read anything about it.

    But clearly all the BS coming out about trump by so many people like Lagarde, now shows he is on the right track.

  3. The picture of ‘Satans Wife’ is fair enough.

    However it is of the nasty Ursula von der Leyen who is a German politician serving as the 13th president of the European Commission since 2019.
    Born Belgium (so yeah, per Austin Powers, a bad egg ) 1958.
    Ally of Merkel. Was Kraut Minster of Defense 2013 to 2019.
    She is a breeder with 7 kids so lots of little Fuhrers-in-training running about

    A rough looking unit,. Probably a lot of French cigarettes over the years.
    Was catapulted into place with the Fake takedown of Dominique Strauss-Kahn – who was in fact not guilty of that accusation but such a pervy type would think he was jewish.
    Ah wait…:Strauss-Kahn’s father was born to an Alsatian Jewish father while Strauss-Kahn’s mother is from a Sephardic Jewish family in Tunisia”
    Well, there you go.
