MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle revealed Tuesday that President Donald Trump just confessed to Americans he was lying about tariffs on China.

At the end of their show, the hosts showed the Stock Market increase after a few days of the market tumbling.

The president threatened to usher in his tariffs on China Sept. 1, immediately causing the markets to fall in response. Trump has argued that the markets and Americans shouldn’t be concerned because China is paying for the increase in tariffs.

“We’re doing this for the Christmas season,” Trump told reporters on an airport tarmac. “Just in case some of the tariffs would have an impact on U.S. customers.”

“So far they’ve had virtually none,” he added. “But just in case they might have an impact on people, what we’ve done is we’ve delayed it, so that they won’t be relevant to the Christmas shopping season.”

In just a few minutes, Trump revealed his “reassurance” about the economy was all a lie.

“This is why this matters,” Ruhle began. “The president has said all along: China — China is paying the tariffs. If that were true –”

“Then what does it matter?” Velshi cut in.

“Why on Earth would the president be delaying these tariffs because of the Christmas shopping season?” Ruhle agreed.

“If China is paying for it why does it matter?” Velshi echoed.

“The president is proving a point that it’s the U.S. importers that pay the tariffs,” Ruhle said.

Embattled Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham went on Fox News multiple times on Thursday to beg their right-wing audience for campaign donations.

Graham started his day on the Fox News show "Fox and Friends" -- where he begged for money.

“My opponent will raise almost $100 million in the state of South Carolina,” said Graham.

“The most money ever spent in the state on a Senate race was by me in 2014 when I spent $13 million. He raised $6 million from the time Justice Ginsburg passed away, within 72 hours and God bless Justice Ginsburg. We’re celebrating her life. I appreciate waiting ’til Saturday to announce her replacement. But I am being killed financially," he admitted. "This money is because they hate my guts.”

WATCH: Late-night hosts go off on Trump for ‘chilling’ plan ‘to steal the election’

Published

on

Late-night television hosts harshly criticized President Donald Trump for refusing to say there would be a peaceful transition of power if he loses the November election.

"In one of the more chilling moments of his presidency -- and they've been a few -- Donald Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power as Republicans formulated the plan to steal the election through the courts," Seth Meyers explained.

"We're as close as we've ever been to losing our democracy and watching our government transform into an autocratic regime," he continued. "It's happen right in front our eyes right now, you don't need to wait for Trump to roll down Pennsylvania Avenue on a tank in green fatigues with a long chin-beard -- especially since if he did try to grow one he'd probably just look like a very sick chihuahua."
