(RT.COM) – U.S. President Donald Trump stepped up attacks on China and the European Union on Friday, accusing them of manipulating their national currencies and interest rates.
The US, which is currently doing well, should preserve its right to recover what was lost through such practices as illegal currency manipulation and trade deals that were not profitable for the US, the president tweeted.
The latest attack by Trump comes amid escalating trade disputes between the US and its trading partners.
