Get me rewrite: Trump flip-flops from trade war threats to concessions

Reported in Trump Shifts From Trade War Threats to Concessions in Rebuff to Hard-Liners.  (The New York Times, 5/14/2018)

With Trump, though, there's never a final word.

According to Merriam Webster, the first known use of 'switcheroo' occurred in 1933.  

Other coinages from the same year:

  1. birdbrain
  2. carny
  3. dumb down
  4. escapism
  5. oops
