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

W300

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!"

"And anybody who takes anything I say seriously has long been on notice that I'm kidding. Dude. 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."
