Trump: ‘The World Trade Organization Has Been a Disaster for This Country’

‘It has been great for China and terrible for the United States’


TRUMP: "I remember when I was growing up, U.S. Steel, that was the ultimate company. And today you have so many closed plants. And the NAFTA deal was a disaster for our country. The WTO has been a disaster for this country, for our country. In fact, the rise of China economically was, if you look at it, directly equal to the date of the opening of the World Trade Organization. It has been great for China and terrible for the United States. And great for other countries, but terrible for the United States."
