Trump accuses Obama of 'destroying' fishing idustry in Maine

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter to aim criticism at former US President Barack Obama for allegedly "destroying" the lobster and fishing industry in Maine.

"Pres. Obama destroyed the lobster and fishing industry in Maine. Now it’s back, bigger and better than anyone ever thought possible. Enjoy your “lobstering” and fishing! Make lots of money," the US president wrote on Twitter.

During the day, US trade adviser Peter Navarro suggested the nation may impose retaliatory tariffs in case China is not acquiring the agreed-upon amount of lobsters. The comments follow his previous claim the trade deal between Washington and Beijing is "over," which Trump quickly denied.
