Trump calls Biden’s plans to lift tariffs on China a ‘terrible mistake’ that makes us look ‘weak’

Former President Donald Trump set the Trump-hating media into action Tuesday in responding to a Politico report that the Biden administration may soon “lift a narrow set of tariffs on Chinese imports this month.”

This being the same media that takes zero interest in the dubious business dealings of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, that involve China.

For the left, the latest talking points are that the Trump-era tariffs have harmed the U.S. economy — you know, the one that President Biden blew up.

Trump released a statement on the possible lifting of tariffs he put in place, which he characterized as a $28 billion “gift” to U.S farmers.

“Believe it or not, it is looking more and more like the United States is getting ready to remove the Tariffs on China. This would be a terrible mistake,” Trump said. “These Tariffs have brought many Billions of Dollars to our Country, and made affected businesses, such as steel, viable again in the United States.”

“Doing this would be the greatest gift that China could ever receive,” the statement added. “Our Farmers alone got $28 billion as a gift from me, that came directly out of the Tariffs because of the way they were abused by China.”

The former president concluded by calling attention to “certain Senators” behind the move, saying it makes the U.S. look “weak.”

“Taking these Tariffs off would be a clear signal that the United States is weak, ineffective, and doing BUSINESS AS USUAL,” Trump said. “Certain Senators are fighting hard to get this done, even saying such ridiculous things as it ’causes inflation.’ Those Senators should be questioned as to their real motives!”

Taking a break from propping up the Biden administration that is widely considered to be failing on all fronts, some in the media took care to note that while in office, Trump increased the national debt by some $8 trillion — never mind that much of this was due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

This being a clear sign that when it comes to the media Biden can do no wrong — at least, until the official word comes down that he needs to be booted from the Democratic Party’s 2024 ticket —  and Trump can do nothing right.
