The U.S. dollar drifted lower on Monday, losing ground against most of its major peers, as news about potential easing of lockdowns in China and U.S. President Joe Biden's remarks that he might drop trade tariffs on China resulted in improved risk sentiment.
Biden said that the tariffs imposed on China by the Trump administration will be reviewed after discussing with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.
"I am considering it. We did not impose any of those tariffs. They were imposed by the last administration and they're under consideration," Biden said.
