Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump used broken English to imitate Asian negotiators during a campaign speech on Tuesday in Iowa.

During his campaign, Trump has repeatedly said that the United States is too closely tied to China’s economy.

On Tuesday, the former reality TV star played out a conversation he imagined he would have with negotiators from Asian nations.

“Negotiating with Japan, negotiating with China, when these people walk into the room, they don’t say, ‘Oh hello, how’s the weather, so beautiful outside, isn’t it lovely? How are the Yankees doing? Oh they are doing wonderful, great,’ ” Trump said in his speech. “They say, ‘We want deal.”
