Trump made the announcement at the NRA's annual convention, where he vowed to fight for gun rights and implored members of the US' largest pro-gun group to rally behind his re-election bid.
It was the first legally binding treaty to regulate the international trade in conventional arms and was overwhelmingly approved by the 193-member UN General Assembly in April 2013.
Advocates of tighter gun restrictions and those who had helped negotiate the treaty denounced Trump's decision Friday.
