(Reuters) - A series of U.S. tariff hikes on Chinese imports could help the Federal Reserve get inflation closer to its 2% target, San Francisco Federal Reserve President Mary Daly said on Thursday.

“It will affect it in the way we hope which is to move it back up to 2% ... but not above,” Daly said in an interview with Fox Business Network.
