Susan Schadler, former IMF director and now a researcher at the Center for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), understands Trumps attitude. "It is entirely in line with the interests of its America First policy. He wants stability in a country like Argentina, it cannot be a second Venezuela. But if the country gets into trouble and Washington only gets involved, he puts the horse behind the cart. The Argentines don't want anything from him. The fact that the IMF takes the irons out of the fire and ensures that stability is only an advantage."
