The president took to Twitter on Monday morning to explain the differential between tariffs paid by the US and China for cars.

In his tweet, Trump writes: “When a car is sent to the United States from China, there is a Tariff to be paid of 2 1/2%. When a car is sent to China from the United States, there is a Tariff to be paid of 25%. Does that sound like free or fair trade. No, it sounds like STUPID TRADE – going on for years!”

Trump’s tweet marks the latest tit for tat with China, in what the media is calling a trade war.

DML responded with a tweet of praise. “Tough love. I like it Mr President. Now apply it everywhere and 2018 could go to the Republicans.”
