President Donald Trump used his favorite social media platform to share his thoughts from Biarritz, France, where he’s attending the G7 economic summit.
“Our great economy is the talk of everyone!” Trump claimed, one day after U.S. markets plummeted as his trade war with China escalated.
With many worrying Trump is causing a recession, the president was brutally mocked for his tweet.
Here’s some of what people are saying:

If it is so great, then why do you keep bitching about wanting a massive rate cut and delaying tariffs for the "holiday season"

If by ‘everyone’ you mean ‘no one’ then yes, you are correct
