Trump Is Willing To Suffer Two-Month Recession If He Can Beat China On Trade

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is willing to allow the U.S. economy to suffer short-term losses and even go into a brief recession in order to deal with a trade imbalance with China.

“China’s been grifting off this country for 25 years, but longer than that. And it’s about time, whether it’s good for our country or bad for our country short term,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked whether he is concerned that a potential trade war with China could hurt the economy.
