Trump: ‘The Fake News’ Media Is Trying to Talk the Economy into a Recession

‘The United States is doing phenomenally well’
By Grabien Staff


TRUMP: "So, the fake news, of which many of you are members, is trying to convince the public to have a recession. Let’s have a recession. The United States is doing phenomenally well. But one thing I have to do is economically take on China. Because China has been ripping us off for many years. President Clinton, President Bush and President Obama and others should have done this long before me. My life would be much easier, although I enjoy doing it, but my life would be much easier if I just said, 'Let China continue to rip off the United States.' All right? It would be much easier, but I can’t do that. We are winning against China. They’ve lost 2.5 million jobs in a very short period of time. They want to make a deal. It’s got to be a deal that’s good for the United States, where they want to make a deal, probably we will make a deal. But if I didn’t do that, and I’m not doing — somebody said it's Trump’s trade war. This isn’t my trade war. This is a trade war that should of taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents.”
