As the U.S. - Chinese trade war continues to rage, President Trump has become increasingly frustrated with the Communist dictatorship, warning the economic powerhouse that it would be a bad idea to attempt to wait out his term.
“My team is negotiating with them now, but they always change the deal in the end to their benefit,” the President said in a Tuesday morning tweetstorm. “They should probably wait out our Election to see if we get one of the Democrat stiffs like Sleepy Joe. Then they could make a GREAT deal, like in past 30 years, and continue to ripoff the USA, even bigger and better than ever before.”
Interesting advice, but Trump didn’t stop there. Essentially egging the Chinese on to make a deal or suffer the consequences, the President continued: “The problem with them waiting, however, is that if & when I win, the deal that they get will be much tougher than what we are negotiating now...or no deal at all.”

We have all the cards, our past leaders never got it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2019
One must wonder : If President Trump does, in fact, win reelection, will he stick to this ominous warning if Xi Jinping’s regime does decide to wait him out? Or is this merely an attempt at ending a contentious trade war before a pivotal and monumental election?
