We’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one.
That’s how some internet users felt on Friday after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders suggested that President Donald Trump would easily best China in a trade war because “he’s the best negotiator at the table.”

Most of the tweets were NSFW, but the one below gives you the picture.
