President Donald Trump broke his Twitter silence on Saturday afternoon, attacking China after they responded to his tariffs aimed at them with a few of their own that is quickly escalating into a trade war.

Writing in his customary frantic style, Trump stated, "The United States hasn’t had a Trade Surplus with China in 40 years. They must end unfair trade, take down barriers and charge only Reciprocal Tariffs. The U.S. is losing $500 Billion a year, and has been losing Billions of Dollars for decades. Cannot continue!"

He then attacked Democrats about the border, writing, "We are sealing up our Southern Border. The people of our great country want Safety and Security. The Dems have been a disaster on this very important issue!"
