President Donald Trump said Friday the U.S. markets could face some “pain’’ from the trade standoff with China and other countries but claimed that Americans would be better off in the long-run due to his protectionist actions.

“I’m not saying there won’t be a little pain,” Trump said Friday during an interview on WABC Radio’s “Bernie & Sid in the Morning’’ program. “ So we might lose a little of it but we’re going to have a much stronger country when we’re finished, and that’s what I’m all about.’’
