After claiming he didn’t praise China’s brutal military suppression of the 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square, Trump referred to the student-led protests as a ‘riot’:

Trump admits to the quote that Tapper ascribed to him, where he said China almost ‘blew it’, but then showed strength to put down this ‘riot’.


It was a massacre where thousands were killed by the Chinese military.

The government is the one who called it a riot to justify the massacre. And that’s exactly what Trump just called it.
