President Trump on Tuesday praised his administration’s recent trade actions, tweeting that “All will be Great.”

The president added “Tariffs are the greatest,” and accused other countries of treating the U.S. like a “’piggy bank’ that’s being robbed.”

“Countries that have treated us unfairly on trade for years are all coming to Washington to negotiate,” the president tweeted. “This should have taken place many years ago but, as the saying goes, better late than never!”

“Tariffs are the greatest! Either a country which has treated the United States unfairly on Trade negotiates a fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs. It’s as simple as that – and everybody’s talking! Remember, we are the ‘piggy bank’ that’s being robbed. All will be Great!” Click here to read more.
