President Trump early Sunday lashed out at the news media, accusing it of trying to hurt his reelection chances.
“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,” Trump said on Twitter amid the Group of 7 Summit in France. “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,” Trump added, before asserting that G-7 nations were getting along and that the U.S.’s economy was the “talk of the world.”
The comments from Trump came after a tumultuous week in which the tit-for-tat trade war between the U.S. and China escalated further. The president on Friday triggered a drop in U.S. stock markets and ignited deeper concerns about an economic downturn after calling on American companies to stop doing business with China.
