Draghi said: 'The interesting thing is that we didn't discuss monetary policy per se. But a slew of recent data suggests the eurozone area has lost some of its momentum.
While the trade tensions have so far mostly been limited to "rhetoric", the European Central Bank chief warned "obviously" [they] can't know what are going to be the direct effects of potential retaliation if the U.S. threats become reality.
A stronger euro would cap inflation, but would affect growth and exports. However, frequent suggestions of underlying weak inflation have called that timeline into question.
