World Trade Organization (WTO) Is Biased Towards United States

World Trade Organization (WTO) Is Biased Towards United States: US President Donald Trump has questioned the World Trade Organization neutrality saying that the organization is biased against the United States. China gets tremendous perks and advantages over US in WTO as they are considered as a developing nation within the trade organization. This makes WTO unfair to US.

On last Tuesday, Washington disclosed some $50 billion worth of proposed tariffs on Chinese imports and accused China with unfair trade practices and theft of intellectual property. On Thursday Trump upped the raise, directing U.S. trade officials to identify tariffs on another $100 billion of Chinese imports.

China in reaction reacted back within hours with its own list of proposed duties on $50 billion of American imports, including soybeans, aircraft, cars, beef and chemicals. Crude oil and global equity markets stumbled on Friday on investor doubts about the impact a tariff war could have on the world economy.

President Trump Positive Hope & Is Ready To Talk With China
