Chinese state media outlets took aim at US President Donald Trump with a barrage of criticism following recent escalations of trade tensions, Reuters reports.
Trump, whom reporters claimed was “starring in his own carefully orchestrated street fighter-style deceitful drama,” was engaging in “wishful thinking,” according to the Communist Party’s official newspaper People’s Daily.
“Governing a country is not like doing business,” the editorial wrote, saying that the situation had become a “zero-sum game” and threatened the standing of the US.
Elsewhere, China Daily mocked Trump’s claims that “tariffs are working big time,” pointing to US Commerce Department data that shows the country’s trade deficit with China has climbed $3 billion since the imposition of duties, and that any negative effects to China’s economy were already present.
