Trump extends wrath to India and Vietnam ahead of G-20

US leader widens net in trade offensive

NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump blasted India and Vietnam for their trade practices ahead of his arrival at the Group of 20 summit, targeting the Asian countries as the Sino-American trade war drags on.

"I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister [Narendra] Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the tariffs even further," Trump tweeted hours before landing in Osaka on Thursday local time. "This is unacceptable and the tariffs must be withdrawn!"
