Trump Reacts To New China Retaliatory Tariffs With Return Of Beloved Vaguely-Racist Campaign Trail Character 'General Tso'
Washington, DC -- United States President Donald Trump today reacted strongly to China’s retaliatory tariffs on 128 American products, with the return of his much beloved vaguely-racist campaign trail character ‘General Tso’.
The character, whose name is derived from the popular Chinese-American dish General Tso’s Chicken, played well with Trump’s base during his 2016 presidential campaign but seemed to offend most liberal voters and especially disgusted the Asian American community.
The Flake News has decided not to quote the president on this story, so as to not further upset our readers across the globe. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who also serves as Trump’s makeup artist for the character, said the president is simply having a bit of fun and looking for some laughs in these tense times.
Sanders believes the president first created the character in the 1980’s and was heavily influenced by father Fred Trump during his bout with early onset dementia.
