Trump Threatens to Withdraw US from World Trade Organization

Trump Threatens to Withdraw US from World Trade Organization:  In a move that could undermine one of the foundations of the modern global trading system, President Trump is threatening to withdraw from the World Trade Organization if “they don’t shape up.”

My word, Putin is really getting his money's worth with this dude!  Apparently, Trump thinks he can pull out of treaties like he pulls out of porn stars.  Who knew a guy like him would even know what the WTO is?  Does he even have any idea what the letters stand for?  

I’m getting this weird feeling that he thinks the WTO has something to do with professional wrestling.  I mean, here’s a guy who doesn’t even know what color the strips in our flag are!  Let’s hope all this bloviating is just more big talk from the man with little hands.

I find this an interesting way to compare Trump and Pence, which we might as well do because if Trump is ever forced out of office, that’s who we’re stuck with. The disadvantage of Pence is that he’s a crusader. He won’t damage lives out of selfishness so much as out of moral conviction, and that is by nature much scarier even though I think he’d have far less of an ability to enact his agenda because not very many people are devoted to him personally. The comparative advantage of Pence, and it’s pretty awful that we have a President making that phrase even possible, aside from simply being weaker, is that we wouldn’t see this WTO crap and other acts like it.

Yes, I said many times before the election that I found Pence much more dangerous than Trump.  However, I don't feel that way anymore.  Trump is not only "on a mission," but he's also crazy and capable of doing nearly anything, no matter how vile it may be - including jailing opponents and journalists.  When you consider that he's essentually destroyed his "brand" (and that of his family) with nearly 2/3 of the world's population - should he ever become a civilian again, he is confronting a desparate situation and who knows what actions he will take?

Johnny I know this is a bit beyond your purview as a knowledgeable person so let us dismiss you of that burden and get down to the chase so to speak. Mister Trump is an expert in matters of economics and when he advocated tariffs or renegotiation it's not about your incessant criticism old boy its about reality which you seem totally unconcerned with. President Trump uses the incredible leverage of the US economy upon all those wo have been allowed to take advantage of us over the years because our chicken shit lawyer politicians did not care if the American consumer paid much more for his car, stereo system, appliances, or food because they were making money! So, when China has an 650 billion dollar trade deficit with the US what does that mean bright boy? When America with it's successful capitalistic economy the only economy that can perpetuate itself thanks to the demands of its own consumers that means we have incredible leverage against export economies like China's and they will have to bend to our will! Are you getting this now Johnny or has the old leftist flawed rationale left you wondering who is really full of shit? Well Johnny, you might find the US media and those who fund them are actually the true enemies of America and that President Trump is your buddy, but I know Mate it's hard to admit you're wrong when you are fucking wrong Mate.
