In an interview in Davos on January 24, 2018, Treasury SecretarySteve Mnuchin reiterated the Trump administration view that a "weaker dollar is good for trade". "It will also raise fears about the risk of global currency wars again - although we should be careful not to read too much into an errant comment made at Davos".
Mnuchin's statement may have had all the more ring of policy because of the Trump administration's assertive "America First" goal of reducing the approximately $500 billion annual US trade deficit.
"It's quite significant given that this is the first time in a very long time that a Treasury secretary has spoken against a strong dollar", said Sireen Harajli, FX strategist at Mizuho.

Meanwhile, the USA dollar traded at 0.8043 euro, down 0.0063 euro;gold was up US$13.72 to US$1,363.43 per ounce as at 1.03pm. But it fits with the Trump administration's stance on trade policy aimed at supporting exporters and reducing the nation's gaping trade deficits. Lagarde reiterated the IMF's view, presented in its World Economic Outlook this week, that the U.S. tax reform is likely to lead to dollar's strengthening in the medium term. "Perhaps Mnuchin will walk back his comments, but the message seems clear - this is what President Trump thinks and wants". "So we're very happy with where the currency is at the moment", he said.
