President Trump talked about the U.S. and Japan trade discussions at a rally in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. “We have a massive deficit with Japan. They send us thousands and thousands, millions of cars. We send them wheat. That’s not a good deal,” says Trump. “They don’t even want our wheat. They do it because they want us to at least feel that we’re ok. They do it to make us feel good.” Responding via Twitter on Wednesday, the National Association of Wheat Growers says “Japan doesn’t buy U.S. wheat because they want us to feel ok, they buy it because it’s the highest quality wheat in the world and that’s not fake news.”
