President Trump on Sunday, Aug. 25, slammed at media and blamed them for making his “re-election more difficult to win” during his trip to France for G-7 summit meetings. 

“Before I arrived in France, the Fake and Disgusting News was saying that relations with the 6 others countries in the G-7 are very tense, and that the two days of meetings will be a disaster,” the president said in a tweet.

President Trump accused media of covering the American economy to make it look bad so that it would have a negative affect on his chances in 2020.

“Just like they are trying to force a Recession, they are trying to “will” America into bad Economic times, the worse the better, anything to make my Election more difficult to win,” the president continued. 

And then the president said he had good meetings with world leaders at the G-7 and said the U.S. “economy is doing great”

“Well, we are having very good meetings, the Leaders are getting along very well, and our Country, economically, is doing great—the talk of the world!” President Trump added. 

President Trump later said world leaders at the G-7 meetings asked him why American media hates the United States and wonder why they are “rooting” for the United States to fail.

“The question I was asked most today by fellow World Leaders, who think the USA is doing so well and is stronger than ever before, happens to be, “Mr. President, why does the American media hate your Country so much? Why are they rooting for it to fail?” the president said in another tweet. 

The president announced new tariffs on goods and products from China retaliating against the Chinese communist regime after the regime announced it would impose new tariffs on $75 billion goods from the United States. 

“China should not have put new Tariffs on 75 BILLION DOLLARS of United States product (politically motivated!). Starting on October 1st, the 250 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, currently being taxed at 25%, will be taxed at 30%,” the president tweeted on Saturday, Aug. 24.

“Additionally, the remaining 300 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, that was being taxed from September 1st at 10%, will now be taxed at 15%,” the president added.
