New York Times Slams President Trump for Quoting Nearly Identical Number They Have in Their Report

On July 5, 2017 President Donald Trump tweeted that China trade with North Korea had grown almost 40{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in the first quarter.

The New York Times immediately attacked the president for quoting this 40{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} figure.
In the same report the New York Times then says China’s trade with North Korea grew 37.4{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} the first quarter compared to last year.

How’s that for fake news?
