Trump Attacks China in Twitter Outburst
“Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency” and “build a massive military complex?” he asked. “I don’t think so!”
China said both sides should “stick to basic principles” of the relationship.
Last week Mr Trump risked a diplomatic rift with China by speaking directly with Taiwan’s president.
The highly unusual move saw China lodge a complaint with the US.
In response to the latest tweets, without directly referring to them, the Chinese foreign ministry said the US and China have long had “highly mutually beneficial” relations.
