U.S.-China Deal to be 'Much Tougher' in 2nd Trump Term


U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned Beijing not to drag its feet in trade negotiations in hopes of getting a better deal should he lose next year's presidential elections.

"While I am sure they would love to be dealing with a new administration... 16 months PLUS is a long time to be hemorrhaging jobs and companies," Trump said on Twitter.

"And then, think what happens to China when I win. Deal would get MUCH TOUGHER!"

There was that one time I said something sincere, when I told Bibi that both sides had to give, so he smirked at me, so I asked him, without thinking, if he'd heard what I said. That taught me the lesson in a whole new way. It should have taught you. So why do I go on like this? Bullcrap is better than out-and-out lying: I'm trying to raise the standard for Presidential rhetoric. No more Trans-Pacific Partnerships that exclude our main partner, and the like."
