Chinese Media Mocks President Trump: “Only Fools Build Walls” …Wait, What?


The Great Wall of China, built in 476 BC, is the longest man-made structure in the world.

Well, this was awkward.

The Chinese media this weekend mocked President Trump saying, “Only fools build walls.”

The BBC reported:

Chinese media have mocked US President Donald Trump over plans to impose 25% tariffs on $50bn worth of Chinese goods, saying “wise men build bridges but fools build walls”.

Mr Trump announced the tariffs on Friday, accusing Beijing of intellectual copyright theft.

China retaliated, saying it would impose an additional 25% tariff on 659 US goods worth $50bn.

Stock markets fell after the announcements amid fear of a trade war.

The US had earlier warned that it will impose even more tariffs should China retaliate.
