“I am a Tariff Man” President Donald Trump tweeted this morning, triggering social media backspray.

Trump made the news tweeting about talks with China he says already have started and will end “90 days from the date of our wonderful and very warm dinner with President Xi in Argentina.

Bob Lighthizer will be working closely with Steve Mnuchin, Larry Kudlow, Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro…on seeing whether or not a REAL deal with China is actually possible. If it is, we will get it done,” Trump tweeted.

(Trump’s chief economic adviser Kudlow may need to get up to speed, having informed press the 90-day trade war truce with China would begin January 1, forcing the White House to correct that about an hour later, informing them, and him, it started December 1.)

“China is supposed to start buying Agricultural product and more immediately. President Xi and I want this deal to happen, and it probably will. But if not remember…

“I am a Tariff Man,” Trump explained. “When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN”
