12. At least there is nothing similar to 47 Republican Senators writing Iran that Obama can not

make a deal with them. There is no Democratic effort to invite a foreign leader 100% against a Trump foreign policy goal to address Congress. That is the background that President Obama and Secretary Kerry faced in 2015 -- as they worked hard with the other countries in the P5+1 to create the strongest nuclear deal that ever existed. Secretary Moniz was and is uniquely qualified to lead the desin of the inspections -- yet, with no facts, Trump and the RW have said they are weak. Yet, there are NO inspections at all in the "denuclearization of NK -- there is not even an agreed upon definition of "denuclearization"!

The fact is there has been NO international agreement, not unilateral or multilateral, that the Trump administartion has actually succeeded in getting. That, I suspect is the reason for this tweet. In his mind, the reason he is failing is that he is being criticized.

Note also that he lies on the position of those he attacks. The people criticizing him on trade policy are the mostly Republican free trade proponents. They are not calling for the end of trade talks - they don't like the specific unilateral actions Trump has taken.
