Subject: Out of town pool report #11 — Grisham statement
Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham just sent this statement to the pool:
“This morning in the bilat with the UK, the President was asked if he had ‘any second thought on escalating the trade war with China’. His answer has been greatly misinterpreted. President Trump responded in the affirmative - because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher.”
