Putin must love this.
1. America designed the WTO
2. America benefits massively from the WTO
Withdrawal cuts off American farmers, workers and companies from 7 billion consumers in countries growing much faster than America can/will
Disinform. Demonize. Destroy. This is LAZY policy. And so, so scary https://t.co/T9Evu31mHT

Aka — for the Twitter users going berserk — Mnuchin LIED. Trump has explicitly told his adviser he wants to withdraw from the WTO many times. Mnuchin has been in the room when he has said this. Every sentence in our story is accurate, including the way we framed the plausibility. https://t.co/drvJQqoAPZ

The dangers of projection. Now that he's @potus, Trump confuses his situation with America's. Because he always thinks he's being screwed, he thinks the US is being screwed by NATO, the EU, the WTO, everybody. Sorry, that's just wrong.

Trump’s self-destructive WTO takedown was clear to observers weeks ago. He is the economic version of a Luddite; smash the machine that has brought our prosperity to save a small group that could be helped better in other ways. https://t.co/5HE3wsaKJc

Axios has obtained a leaked draft of a Trump bill that would abandon key World Trade Organization rules.
"The bill essentially provides Trump a license to raise U.S. tariffs at will, without congressional consent and international rules be damned." https://t.co/gYnpUuypqx
