Mr. Trump is already facing heavy criticism when it comes to trade. The president’s new tariffs will force every foreign company that sends steel and aluminum to the United States to pay 25 percent.
On Thursday, Trump arrived in Japan for the G20 Osaka Summit where he is likely to face more criticism from other foreign leaders. Trump tweeted this video Thursday evening:

Mr. Trump has long talked about making the U.S. dollar weaker and a result of this G20 Summit could be to push the U.S. dollar down to a yearly low. Trump has said that a weaker dollar would make the U.S. dollar more competitive abroad.
However, the value of the dollar could fall even further depending on the president’s negotiations in Japan later this week. Trump argues that he wants to set up U.S. products against global competition although his 25 percent tariffs may already be detrimental especially to those companies producing steel and aluminum products.
Here’s what Twitter had to say about Trump’s visit to Japan:
At the same time the G20 Summit is happening, Democratic candidates have lined up the stage for the first presidential debates, most of them promising to undo the detrimental things Trump has done in just a short amount of time in his presidency.
According to MSN News:
‘Democratic divisions over race, age and ideology surged into public view Thursday night as the party’s leading presidential contenders faced off in a fiery debate over who is best positioned to take on President Donald Trump.’
