Would you rewrite the below (A) in Trump's twitter into a longer sentence easier to understand?

(A) Trump Defiant as U.S. Adds Trade Penalties,Will End Barriers

The Fake News Washington Post, Amazon’s “chief lobbyist,” has another (of many) phony headlines, “Trump Defiant As China Adds Trade Penalties.” WRONG! Should read, “Trump Defiant as U.S. Adds Trade Penalties, Will End Barriers And Massive I.P. Theft.” Typically bad reporting!

Apparently the Washington Post had a headline, "Trump Defiant As China Adds Trade Penalties." and he didn't like it. I don't know what barriers he thinks he is ending. I guess he's enjoying starting a trade war. I'm sorry I can't explain it better because I think he's an idiot.

Lorikeet, Thank you for your reply. In Japan we have another idiot named Abe.
