Trump Continues To Piss Off China, Unleashes Another Twitter Tirade (TWEETS)

After what will go down as possibly the dumbest thing Trump has done to date — breaking a 37-year-old protocol by speaking to Taiwan’s president, thus risking a diplomatic crisis of epic proportions in China — you’d think he would stay quiet and let the people in charge fix this little problem of his. But, nope. He just can’t help but fuel the fire! He’s like a 2-year-old who would rather have negative attention than no attention at all!

After two days of backlash from pretty much everyone in response to his greed-induced phone call with Taiwan, Trump decided it would be a good idea to take to Twitter again and voice his frustrations, criticizing China for their continued taxation of U.S. Products as well as their aggression in the South China Sea.

“Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into…their country (the U.S. doesn’t tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don’t think so!”

We can’t be sure what his endgame is here, but because Trump criticized China throughout much of his campaign, it’s possible that he’s not finished with his one-sided Twitter war just yet.
