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.

    Yup. Always someone else’s fault. Today’s scapegoat: the media.

    Donnie, the media has nothing to do with any recession that comes because of YOUR ill-advised economic policies.
