WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump accused China on Wednesday of targeting American farmers in a vicious way and using them as leverage to get concessions from him on trade.
"China is targeting our farmers, who they know I love & respect, as a way of getting me to continue allowing them to take advantage of the U.S. They are being vicious in what will be their failed attempt. We were being nice - until now!" Trump wrote on Twitter.
