Much of Trump's decisions this week have been affected by the drone attacks that occurred Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
Trump wrote in a tweet on Sunday that, "there is reason to believe we know the culprit" behind the attacks, adding that the U.S. is ready to respond to the attackers verification.
On Monday, before a meeting with the crown prince of Bahrain, Trump met with white house reporters and stated that it looks like Iran was behind the attack. The president said he did not want war with Iran but added that U.S. is prepared for conflict with any other country.
Trump also attacked the Federal Reserve, calling for a stimulus due to the skyrocketing oil prices earlier in the week. Trump continued to try and sway that decisions of the Fed to cut interest rates before their two day meeting that started Tuesday.
Later on Twitter, Trump suggested that lawmakers should investigate former U.S. president Barack Obama instead of him, citing his recent book deal and Netflix documentaries. Trump seems to be trying to divert attention away from himself.
On Tuesday, Trump stated that a trade deal with China could happen soon, speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One. Trump said that an agreement could come before or one day after the 2020 election.
"If its after the election, it'll be the toughest deal anybody's ever had to make from the standpoint of China, and they know that," Trump stated.
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted his disapproval of the Fed after the bank reduced its benchmark shirt-term rate to a range between 1.75% and 2%.
Trump tweeted that, "Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve fail again" and referred to chairman Powell as having "No 'Guts'" and being a terrible communicator.
After his Twitter storm, Trump named Robert O'Brien to be his next national security advisor to replace John Bolton, who departed from his position last week. O'Brien is the fourth national security advisor to serve Trump.
Trump also stated that he ordered Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the Treasury Department to "substantially increase" sanctions on Iran. The U.S. moved forward and accused Iran of carrying out the weekend attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil fields.
On Thursday, Trump filed a lawsuit against Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. and his longtime accounting firm just days after the news broke that the municipal prosecutor subpoenaed years of Trump's personal and corporate tax returns. This is a continuation of Trump's attempts to acquire tax documents that Trump wants to have hidden from public knowledge. He promised to release the tax returns after the completion of an IRS audit.
Finally on Friday, Trump spoke at a news conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison that he was looking to complete trade deal with China and that it did not have to come before the next presidential election 2020. Th U.S. Trade Representative's office is exempting more than 400 items produced in China from tariffs, a move that has helped U.S. manufacturers.
Trump then officially increased Iran sanctions, included the Iranian National Bank in the Oval Office, calling them the highest ever imposed on the country.
Trump ended his week by responding to a whistleblower rumor that he had an incriminating conversation with a foreign leader and a promise that Trump made to them. He denied any type of conversation along those lines.
