Trade tensions 'principal threat' to world economy: IMF chief
The head of the International Monetary Fund warned Sunday that global trade tensions posed the "principal threat" to the world economic outlook and U.S.-China tariffs could make a "significant dent" in any recovery.

"The principal threat stems from continuing trade tensions," said Christine Lagarde in a statement after a meeting of the G20 finance ministers and central bank chiefs.
