Trump's overnight tweets have an odd time pattern -- either I'm missing something, he did a lot of fast-forwarding, or he did a bunch of tweets after watching several segments.
Left, Fox's Ingraham Angle, 10:09 pm ET

Actual quote is "this has been an incredibly successful visit for the president."

Right, Trump, 4:02 am ET (9:02 am in London
Left, Ingraham Angle, 10:25 p.m.
Right, Trump, 4:12 a.m ET (9:12 a.m. UK)
The McCarthy tweet, if this is where he got it from, is completely mangled to make it much more Trumpy (next tweet).

Left, Ingraham Angle, 10:41 p.m.
Right, Trump, 4:20 am
Left, what McCarthy told Laura Ingraham about House GOP support for tariffs.

Right, Trump's tweet quoting him.
Ah nice, McCarthy's office says Trump must be talking about the Ingraham interview.
Best guess on what happened here, based on the tweet pattern -- Trump watched the relevant segments and then he or his aide attempted to do multiple tweets responding, and by the third one the actual McCarthy quote was forgotten so they just made it up.
