President Trump went after the New York Times on his first day back in the Oval Office, after being away on a ten-day trip to Asia.

He did not specify which story he was displeased with, but an opinion editorial was published Tuesday by Thomas Friedman, titled, “China Could Sell Trump the Brooklyn Bridge.”

Friedman wrote of the contrast between China’s President Xi Jinping and President Trump, claiming Trump “literally has no idea what he’s doing and has no integrated strategy.”

“Xi has been brilliant at playing Trump, plying him with flattery and short-term trade concessions and deflecting him from the real structural trade imbalances with China. All along, Xi keeps his eye on the long-term prize of making China great again. Trump, meanwhile, touts every minor victory as historic and proceeds down any road that will give him a quick sugar high,” Friedman wrote.

President Trump shot out a three-part Twitter message Wednesday, pounding the New York Times:

The failing @nytimes hates the fact that I have developed a great relationship with World leaders like Xi Jinping, President of China…..

…They should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing. The U.S. is being respected again. Watch Trade!

It is actually hard to believe how naive (or dumb) the Failing @nytimes is when it comes to foreign policy…weak and ineffective!
