  • The Trump Administration is planning to suspend collecting import tariffs for three months, The Wall Street Journal says - a report the president has already called "fake news."
  • “Customs duties will be suspended for three months,” the paper quoted a senior administration official as saying today. The companies would still be liable for the tariffs at a later date.
  • Asked about it in real time during the (ongoing) White House coronavirus update news conference, Trump denied it was true.
  • "The Wall Street Journal does a lot of fake news too," Trump said. "It's pretty amazing!"
