Donald Trump on Friday complained that his administration’s efforts to resolve a trade dispute with China and seek nuclear disarmament with North Korea amounted to cleaning up a “mess” created by the Obama administration.
“If you look at what we’ve straightened out, I call it the ‘Obama-Biden mess,'” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “We’re straightening it out, whether it’s North Korea…you were going to end up in a war with North Korea, and now the relationship is a good relationship.”
“You look at what Joe Biden has done with China…we lost our shirts with China under the Obama administration, and now China is dying to make a deal,” he added.
Trump’s remarks Friday came in response to comments Biden made to CNN’s Chris Cuomo in a recent interview, where Biden likened Trump to a schoolyard bully.
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth,” Biden said.

President Trump responded by saying,
“I don't think I'm a bully, I just don't like being taken advantage of by other countries… we’re straightening out the Obama/Biden mess.” pic.twitter.com/46gXAP1O6x
