Trump says WTO is unfair to US

Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump teed up a fight with the World Trade Organization Friday, claiming the 164-country body was biased against the United States.

A day after China asked the WTO to referee a rapidly escalating trade fight with Washington, Trump questioned the organization’s impartiality.

“China, which is a great economic power, is considered a Developing Nation within the World Trade Organization,” he tweeted.

“They therefore get tremendous perks and advantages, especially over the U.S. Does anybody think this is fair. We were badly represented. The WTO is unfair to U.S.”
