Days after International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde made international news with the now-famous film of her dismissive look at Ivanka Trump during the G-20 summit, the "look" will take on new meaning as Lagarde was announced Tuesday as the new president of the European Central Bank (ECB).

In succeeding longtime ECB President Mario Draghi, Lagarde, 63, will have a new perch from which to toss invective at the protectionist trade policies of the Trump administration.

A firm advocate of free trade during her near-decade at the helm of the IMF, Lagarde has made no secret of her distaste for protectionism under Trump.

In her words, there must be "adults in the room" on trade talks.

Lagarde, once considered a likely presidential candidate in her native France, also locked horns with the Trump administration over climate change.
