After crashing the stock market, Trump is claiming that he was just kidding when he claimed to be the chosen one in his trade war with China.

Trump tweeted:

As you can see from the video above, there is no laughing. Trump was not smiling. Trump was serious. The president views his trade war as a holy war and himself as the chosen one. It was only after taking a ton of criticism that he pulled back, and went with that old right-wing song and dance of claiming it was all a joke then criticizing those who reported his behavior seriously.

Trump wasn’t kidding, and with his trade war bombing, he can’t claim that it was all a joke.
