President Donald Trump, in an interview that aired Friday morning, admitted that the trade actions he has announced against China could cause some “pain” in the markets.

In a radio interview on “Bernie & Sid in the Morning,” on 77 WABC, Trump said there’s no current trade war with China because “we have lost the trade war,” and he defended his proposed $150 billion tariffs.

“I’m not saying there won’t be a little pain,” Trump said. “But the market has gone up 40 percent, 42 percent, so we might lose a little bit of it. But we are going to have a much stronger country when we are finished.”

He added, “We may take a hit, and you know, ultimately we’re going to be much stronger for it, but it’s something we have got to do.”
