President Trump: I don't blame China, I blame past leadership 1


President Donald Trump staked out a new position on the trade war with China, claiming that China called overnight and wants to return to the negotiating table. During a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump also criticized previous US administrations' handling of China while on foreign soil.

    Don’t worry people as soon as he gets back to the country he will blame China again.

      Gerardo Muniz should be a long flight home on Air Force One….the tweets should start coming when he’s safely out of France’s air space

    • Gerardo Muniz He’s been consistent with his blame of previous administrations. This is why he ran for POTUS.

  2. Wow, if trump doesn’t sell our country out his dwarfs will. I don’t trust anyone with trump at the G-7. We are in a bad place right now.

    • @Mo Nothanks what is FOX/Trump news? Far right only Trump is truth correct? Just asking you a serious question.

    • @Mo Nothanks That never works the republicans always go ballistic. Last time he shut down the government I asked a friend did he say “I will take full responsibility for the shut down”. I got screamed at for 10 mins. Most of rumps people are to defensive to carry on a civilized conversation.

    • In 2007 Hillary CLINTON: from Time Magazine’s “I Have to Earn Every Vote”
      “Trade on balance has been very good for America. But I don’t see how anyone can look at what’s happened in the global economy and not ask yourself, what are we missing here? Why is it that we have such a huge trade deficit with the world, particularly with China?
      Is it all because we can’t compete? I don’t think so.
      Is it because the rules are not being enforced? Is it because most other governments in the world take actions that maximize the positive impact of their trading relationships for their workers? I think so.
      And it’s not just China, which is just the most egregious example. I issued a report earlier this year about some of the problems we have with Canada, our very good neighbor and ally along our border. We have trouble getting NY agricultural products into Canada. And I believe that it’s because the federal and provincial governments of Canada, they protect themselves. They protect their farmers. They are not going to just open their borders regardless of what NAFTA says.”
      For me, trade is who we are. We’re traders. We want to be involved in the global economy, but not be played for suckers.”

    • @Mo Nothanks FEAR MONGERING is being done by the right. Mexico is only sending their worst. Antifa is causing all the trouble. Good people on both sides. Putin is right our intelligence is wrong.

    • Venom Snake you WILL lose this trade war with China and you’ll take the rest of the world down with you. Of course though all you guys are just too dumb to see it!

  3. I thought he couldn’t promote his own properties, surely something can be done to stop him profiting from it.

    • @Julia Gee , God is Santa Claus for adults. Grow up. Be Atheist. Trump is the devil.

    • Nadia Silvershine | August 26, 2019 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      Are you asleep? He has been promoting his properties, as a way to profit from the Presidency, since he was sworn in. It is a violation of the emoluments clause. And so did Ivanka, and so did Jared. They are a pack of common (uncommon!) criminals.

    • @Fix News not trump

    • @Kelly HB it is, but not for trump

    • @kudosdc and starting a charity for Children with Cancer and his son and stealing the donated millions and using it for Trump Organization. Also Melania does have full spread nudity pictures on the web and in magazines. So I know those things are truth. I googled the info on Trump and Children’s charity. As far as Melania, I didn’t believe it, but looked anyway. It’s amazing to see the president’s wife in such literally revealing positions.

    To put down past administration’s on foreign soil in front of world leaders is despicable!

      They deserve all the bad mouthing.

      @lifecloud2 I completely agree. It’s impossible to have any kind of discussion with those people, because they refuse to use factual information and do anything other than spew nasty words, insults and playground taunts. I’d be perfectly content to have a discussion based on policy decisions, but that’s not the way they communicate. The words they choose to try and insult people is also really telling. It seems like calling someone gay is their way of trying to insult someone, which just points to their bigotry. It’s pretty sad, and I can only hope it’s just a vocal minority or a bunch of bored teenagers getting their kicks from trolling people online.

  5. Trump just “China”! All this time I thought it was “Ghina”?

    the other leaders are not laughing with him…they can barely contain themselves laughing about him…also they might just be happy that this farce of a president is over soon.

    He always looks bored and disinterested when other leaders are talking. On another note why is Jared there?? All about the unity. 😂😂

  8. I can’t abide hearing his voice and the insane garbage he is constantly spewing. Do wish news outlets would just provide a writtens summary of his spiel~

    • There are these things called “newspapers” you can find them at the library if you’re interested.

    • When your hatred is at the point where you cant listen to someone without being upset, its time to just back away form politics. Its the name of the game. I am a centrist who watched multiple news sources on the left and right. Its a shame to see how much hatred both sides are polluting their audiences with with their propaganda and spins. Dont become what you hate! Dont let hate enter your heart. Whether right or left leaning, take the high road. Never give into violence or hate.

  9. “Billions and billions” “millions and millions” “As you all know” “doing a really great job” “Obama terrible job” “we’ll see what happens” “Fake news” “China” “tremendous deal” “looking at it very closely” “we’re doing very very well” – Trump, G7 Summit 2019

    No other world leader throws his own country under the bus as #45
    He’s a TRAITOR & AMERICAS biggest Security THREAT

  11. And we blame you, Trump.
    Our next POTUS has a lot of cleaning up to do, and making amends for, for sure.

    • You literally are cheering for China. If you knew how dirty they play, you’d be on Trump’s side making sure they pay their fair share and play on fair ground.
      It’s sad that your hatred for him is obviously blinding you from admitting the truth.


    • Oooh, but Fox news will blame that leadership, not Trump

    • Trump will be the next president. He is in the spot light all the time. All any one talks about is Trump. There is a serious fetish for trump from those who oppose him and it keeps making him stronger.

  12. Meeellions and meeellion and beeellions and beeellions. He must have said the word “deal” a meeellion times. Why doesn’t he use a grown up word like “policy” or “agreement?”

  13. I will be feeling embarrassed to be seated besides Trump and listening to him speak. Pity all these world leaders that they have to patronize this big baby.

  14. Hey Twit- Yeah you trump. We all blame you, yes you!!!! #hinddightisin2020

  15. So according to Trump other countries have been screwing the U.S and he respects them??

  16. Plans? Not Trump’s thing. Blame? He can’t get enough of it.

      @Marcus Maddox Thank you for illustrating what we already knew: this destructive, inept, unqualified, bigoted, narcissistic, thin-skinned dotard is revenge for Democratic citizens electing and re-electing a black president. As he burns the house down, at least you can enjoy trolling CNN threads. Congrats on your “win,” patriot.

    • Trump’s plans as related to the G-7 are twofold. 1) Push for holding next year’s meeting at his own golf course and thus make a pile of money for his own private company while he serves out his last days as President.
      and 2) Ensuring his bestie not from the westy is there, putin his hand on Trump’s thigh while the meeting takes place.

    • @Nadia Silvershine I’ve done field work picking fruit in the USA south west and north summers.
      How much agriculture work have you done. Not much I suppose.

    • @Karl Daniels Thanks for responding.

  17. America is not sending their best to the G7, America is sending their worst thieves, war mongers, and liars.

  18. I wonder if he knows that the Reason WHY the US gives China preferential trade is because USA is in DEBT to them.
    It’s how trade and Borrowing works

  19. He loves trashing or blaming Americans. Dictators, pedophiles, racist, communist and himself!!! not much…..

  20. What country was donald trump representing at the G7 Summit, was it China, or Russia?

    What was donald trump promoting at the G7 Summit, was it his own business at the “doral resort”?
