President Trump suggested on social media that China might be waiting for him to lose the 2020 election in hopes of getting a better trade deal with “one of the Democrat stiffs like Sleepy Joe” Biden as president.
“They should probably wait out our Election to see if we get one of the Democrat stiffs like Sleepy Joe,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “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.”
“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.”
The president also commented on the trade talks last Friday at the White House: “I don’t think personally China would sign a deal if I had a two percent chance of losing the election, I think China would probably say, ‘Let’s wait. Let’s wait, maybe Trump will lose and we can deal with another dope and another stiff like the people that allowed these deals to happen.’”
