Trump repeats threat to take U.S. out of WTO

“But people have taken advantage. Like, for instance, they view certain countries — like China, India, many countries — for a long time, they viewed them as ‘they’re growing’,” Mr. Trump said, adding that these countries had now grown and had “tremendous advantages”. “But we’re not letting that happen anymore, okay? We have to work with them, but nobody ever wants to work with the United States. It’s a disgrace. But it’s changing, and it’s changing fast. And I think it’s the primary reason, probably, that I ran for President,” he said.
Mr. Trump was meant to speak on ‘America’s Energy Dominance and Manufacturing Revival’, as per the White House, but rambled through a range of topics, including jibes at his potential opponent for the White House in 2020, ex-Vice-President Joe Biden.
