One person who has discussed the subject with Trump, according to Axios, said the president frequently told advisers: "I don’t know why we’re in it. The WTO is designed by the rest of the world to screw the United States."
Last Friday, the United States ramped up its challenge to the global trading system, telling the WTO that appeals rulings in trade disputes could be vetoed if they took longer than the allowed 90 days.
