Donald Trump spent a good part of his 2016 presidential campaign bragging about how he makes “the best” deals and is a skilled negotiator. Most Americans weren’t fooled — the majority of us were well aware that Trump’s “skills” have caused his businesses to go bankrupt several times — and now his supporters are finally coming around. After seeing the constant disasters Trump has caused during his short time in office, voting regrets are plentiful.
And yet, the White House is still trying to make America believe otherwise.
Yesterday, one of Trump’s top liars — White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders — was forced to say that Trump is the “best negotiator at the table” while keeping a straight face. Huckabee Sanders stated this while talking about the trade war and tariffs Trump is threatening China with, which is already turning into a disgraceful mess. You can watch Huckabee Sanders spew her pro-Trump nonsense below:

The trade war is already a disaster, so it’s insane that Huckabee Sanders would use this as a talking point for Trump’s negotiation skills.

Here are some of the best responses:
Many people brought up Trump’s previous presidential failures as proof that Trump shouldn’t be trusted to negotiate anything:
It seems that Trump has been failing his entire life, if you look at his long history of failed ventures:
And of course, the most brutal responses at the moment referenced Trump’s now-public sex scandal with adult film star Stormy Daniels, where Trump and his lawyer clearly failed at negotiating a deal to keep her quiet:
